New Year, New Routines

Well, it's started. The 2018-2019 school year! This year we have a kindergartner and a preschooler. Josiah was not completely thrilled to be going back, and Charlotte was over-the-moon excited.

I have many childhood memories of impromptu block party grill outs and playing night games with the neighborhood kids until long after the street lights came on. I loved summer time with friends.

Into the Universe

It's the question that both haunts me and motivates me: What are you doing with your life?  There are the obvious answers; mom, wife, homemaker, farmer (kinda), employee, business owner.  But what...
