Fishing With Kids….

Really I just wish I had a video of our fishing adventures while we were camping a few weeks back. It would be hilarious. I took a bunch of photos, but they no where near do the experience justice.   I’m pretty sure Clint spent about 98% of the time un-tying fishing line or switching…

Yurt Camping 2018

We got away from everything last week and went yurt camping. I decided I really like yurts. It’s kind of like a tent only in the morning when its cold there is a wood stove that you can start (or in my case Clint can climb out of his warm sleeping bag and start while…

Large Family Hacks…Laundry Edition

So as we have been settling in its been more than obvious that if we can streamline or make something or anything easier we all benefit from it. And so as I was thinking if our large family benefits from something it is possible that other large families might as well or even smaller families….

Boating!

After Korea Heritage Adoption Camp (post still coming I promise!), on Tuesday we decided to go boating on Lake Granby. It is the second largest lake in Colorado and the headwaters of the Colorado River. It was the first time for the kids to be on a boat and they were so excited. It was…

And Then There Are Days…

I think every parent has them. You know those “days”. This moments when you either decide to laugh or cry, and often you’re not sure which one to do. Mine was last Thursday. The simple plan was just to go to the library. We finished lunch early, and every had their shoes on and at 11:55….

A Journey of 13 Miles

Every journey begins with one step. Unfortunately the journey to a ½ marathon takes a lot more than just that one step.  And what seems like a good idea in November doesn’t always seem like a good idea come February.  And it’s not the first time I’ve been on this journey either. I have a…
