The Kio family has been outfitting its little citizens in Tea for years. So we were thrilled to have them join us on our Scottish adventures. It was an incredible journey, and the whole Kio clan immersed itself in the culture, customs and fables of this charming country.
We know that Benjamin left Scotland with his first set of bagpipes – How’s it going?
Benjamin was determined to find kid’s bagpipes as his souvenir from our trip. We didn’t get back from the photoshoot before the shops closed though, so when LaDonna was kind enough to pick up a set she found for him, we were all so touched and grateful. He was so excited to bring them home that he insisted on carrying them, inside their cardboard box, in his arms, through the airports and on the planes to make sure they were safe. I remember watching the little plaid box going through the X-ray security screenings. And when we boarded the first plane, another passenger saw Benjamin carrying the box and said, “You’re not going to be playing those on the airplane, are you now?”
Ten miles from the gray stone streets of Edinburgh, the wind rushes over rolling green hills, carrying with it the songs of birds and new lambs.

10-year-old Henry from Ratho, Scotland is a lot like other kids his age. He loves to watch TV, horse around with his friends, and play sports. Quite an impressive list of sports, actually: cricket, football (soccer), tennis, rugby, swimming, diving, gymnastics.
I started my first business when I was about 9 or 10 years old. It was a retail business. Well, I’m not sure you would call it retail. Or even a business. But I sold stuff. Sometimes I would convince my neighborhood friends to raid their family pantries for ingredients that we could somehow turn into a baked good. Then we would go door-to-door. Who needs Thin Mints or a good cause! We had sugar, flour, and social networking. (Although I’m pretty sure I didn’t track my cost of goods sold very accurately — or at all.)
My first real business was also in retail. When I was 15, I started a delivery business for helium-filled balloons. Keep in mind that even in Tennessee you can’t drive when you are 15. So I guess that means that I co-founded my first legitimate business with my parents. They were the drivers, the landlords, and my board of directors. I had marketing collateral and financial statements — all hand-written on bright yellow paper and kept in a turquoise 3-ring binder that held my official business license tucked in the side pocket.
