Change In Plans…

A couple of weeks ago on a Tuesday we were suppose to go on a field trip with the little’s preschool class to Miller Farms where the kids can pick vegetables and explore the farm but we woke up that morning to rain and temps in the 40s and so needless to say the field…

Horsetooth Rock Hike

On Sunday we decided to hike Horsetooth Rock. It is close to our church and it was going to be part of our family celebration for completing and paying off my med school loan. We packed our lunches to eat in the car on the way to the trail head and a change of clothes…

Paid In Full….

When I graduated Medical School in May of 2007 I had a HUGE student loan. I immediately started residency which meant I could essential delay paying on my student loan for another 4 years. I got paid during residency but it was pretty much enough to make our condo payment each month and keep us…

Edric-4 Years Home!

On September 23rd we celebrated Edric being home for 4 years. Actually we had a family dinner on the 22nd because no one had a practice or commitment that night. And I managed to not get any photos of his dinner. We had “crack noodles’ which I think is the actual name of the recipe…

Thursday Evening Hike

On another recent Thursday we packed up in the late afternoon and headed up the mountain to hike. We went to Ouzel Falls trail and while we didn’t make it all the way to the falls, the trail is full of other water falls and it was just a great evening to get out and…

Late Summer Blooms

In the spring I found a few Dahlia bulbs for less than 2$ at the grocery store and decided to plant them in what will be my bee garden next year. (My hive is all ready to go, I just had to wait an extra year because of some HOA approval stuff, so I’m using…

Thursday Adventures

Despite me trying to have at least two days a week that didn’t have a commitment this year I was only successful in getting one evening during the regular week that we don’t have something going on. Yes we get to spend most lunches together because we homeschool and the littles are home from preschool…

And Coppelia is 4!

4 years ago on August 21, 2015, Clint and I were actually in Seoul, we flew out early that afternoon after Edric’s court meeting on the 20th for his adoption. Little did we know that across the city our little spitfire of a girl was making her way into the world. I think had we…

Mountain Flowers

When we went backpacking a couple of weeks ago, the mountains were teeming with wild flowers. There were flowers everywhere and they were amazing. There were also a number of mushrooms and wild strawberry plants around. They made an already beautiful trip even more gorgeous.

First Week Of 2019/2020 School In The Books!

And our first week of school is done. August 12th seemed really early to start school for me, but the two littles had their first day of preschool scheduled for the 13th and so it kind of seemed like we might as well get started. Our homeschool enrichment has orientation next Wednesday and then that…
