More Road Trips…

Steven’s Personal Letter – August 2021 What would a summer letter be without another road trip?   This year Evan wisely stayed up in Bozeman for the summer, so our journey began with Zach, Sydney and I driving up to see him at the end of June. After three and half days in beautiful days […]

Turning 50

I turned 50 last month. I know it’s no big deal – even elephants live to 50. Heck, most of the U.S. population makes it past 50.   What was most interesting about my birthday: my kids’ reaction to me turning 50. Actually, not me turning 50, but the fact that “I was young once.” […]

Fried Joy

Did I ever mention that I don’t like long car rides?   Then how the heck did I end up on another 10 1/2-hour marathon drive from Montana to Denver?  Oh right, COVID… Typically, over Thanksgiving we go to So Cal for the week.  We actually kept thinking that we were still going to go..right up […]

Road Trips

For obvious reasons this summer looked very different than last summer.  Although we did get to do some stuff all together before Evan went back to school, we didn’t do a ‘normal’ family vacation where we were all together.  On the other hand, I did get to have a couple of road trips individually with […]

The Quarantine Life

What day was it again?  Or was it just me that often couldn’t tell what day of the week it was? As the state (and country) begin to ease stay-at-home orders, I thought it would be interesting to reflect back on the last two months of quarantine (or however you refer to the last two […]

My Dad Bought a Horse

My dad bought a horse. My dad is going to be 78 this year.  He has never owned a pet.  Never.  The cats that he and my step mom have are hers – she takes care of them.  He may feed the cats every now and then, and even clear out the litter box, but […]

Number 5

It’s been six months since I sent out my last letter.  Shame on me.  I could use the “I’ve been busy” excuse, but that’s a total cop out.  Everyone’s busy. The truth is I couldn’t actually hit the “publish” button on any of the four different letters I wrote.  I didn’t like any of them.  I […]

Ten Years?!?

This past November was my family’s tenth year in Colorado.  What!?!?! Ten years? I can’t believe it! What do most adults say when referring to time?  It flies.  It’s so cliché that I can’t bring myself to say it.  But its true.  Time flies. Ten years ago the economy was collapsing, the country had just […]

Play Ball!

I mess up all the time. In fact, I probably make more mistakes than I get things right.  It’s likely true in all areas of my life.  It’s especially true as a parent. We can all probably relate in one way or another, either how our parents raised us, or how we raised (or are raising) our […]
