The start of summer!

The start of summer!

Early Saturday morning, Louie and I packed up the car and headed west. Colorado bound! Here are some highlights. Boulder is only about 6 hours from central Nebraska, which is funny when you think about how different the landscape is. You can also tell immediately upon crossing from Nebraska into Colorado–the roads get worse and … Continue reading

Welcome, Family Resources readers!

I’m reading Carl Rogers’s On Becoming a Person right now, and it’s wonderful. I can see the beginnings of so many … Continue reading

Gratitude.

Life is good–I’m done till June! It has been an epic semester. Like any semester, there were some … Continue reading
