    Lately, all I’ve been posting have been giant photo bomb posts of the mountains, but I’m finding our forays into the wilderness around us so breathtaking that it’s hard not to share. Β We planned four camping trips this summer, one per month June through September; two of the trips were for our family alone and…

    I’m catching up with my end of the year work and realized I never wrote a final post for our Food Stamps Challenge.  It also just so happens that today we were in the newspaper; the Gillette News Record ran a story about our challenge, along with some pictures of Chris cooking (taken by Daniel Brenner). …

    Last week was sort of a rough week for me.  Chris was gone for work Monday-Friday and though it wasn’t really much different for the girls from when he was working at the restaurant, it just felt different to me.  It was hard not having him in the house at night.  I was supposed to…
