Amy's Reflections

This past week I had an interesting conversation with Andrew. He was getting some gum out of a little zip pouch he had attached to his school computer. When asked where he got all of the gum, he responded he bought it. When asked where he got the money to...

Notes from Steve

This week is Christmas. For some reason, the spirit of “bah-humbug-ness” that usually pervades my space and affects all that I do, feel and how I react is absent this year. I jumped really hard into the Christmas spirit by visiting Manhattan this past weekend. I did the Rockettes Holiday...

Notes from Steve

I joined a book club recently. I’ve never done anything like this before, and I thought it might be just a reason to get together to drink wine and eat (it kind of is), but also you have to read a book and discuss. My first meeting was last week...

Amy's Reflections

After watching the video from QEMS five different times, I decided to challenge my family with a phone free day. So, this past Sunday we put our phones away and enjoyed conversation and connecting with one another. We were almost late for church as no one knew what time it...
