Our First Summer in the Mountains

Now that we’re nearly to Halloween, I’ll backtrack to our first summer in the mountains. What a big summer we had. It was filled with change, family visitors, building a community and making new friends and exploring. There were oodles of highlights from our first summer as permanent mountain dwellers. We started the summer with […]

Soccer Season!

Ben recently wrapped up his first official soccer season! He played a quick six-week co-ed session in the local league and had a blast. It was really fun watching Ben and his team progress throughout the year. Typically, Ben had one practice and two games each week. The games were really sweet to watch. It […]

The school has two teachers and two classrooms, one for K-1 and the other for 2-5, […]

Meet Brooks!

It feels a little funny having such a quick turnaround from losing Jackson to welcoming a new puppy into our family, but we’re doing it! Let me introduce you to Brooks, the newest member of our little family. My friend Kelsey was quick to say it’s never too soon to add more love in your […]

Mountain Life: Spring/Summer Update

I’ve gotten quite behind on posting lately and am trying to catch up! Here’s another photo dump of what we’ve been up to since moving to the mountains. We moved out here early May and we’re absolutely still getting settled. It feels like there is random stuff everywhere. Merging two houses into one is quite […]
