Sebastian started third grade at the same Waldorf school he was able to get into last year. He has the same teacher and mostly the same kids in his class which has proven to be a great way to start the year without having to wade through a month of... Continue reading

I celebrated my thirty-third circle around the sun on Sunday with a special little outing with my love and my littlest. Our sweet neighbor friends watched the big kids and we snuck out to try a new to us coffee shop in downtown Colorado Springs. It was a beautiful afternoon... Continue reading
