Notes from Steve

I have this new favorite song that won’t leave my head. It’s “Budapest” by George Ezra. So I’m singing along, get to the chorus, and sing really loudly … “ah dee-bee doe” … thinking it was a scat phrase. Weeks pass and I’m listening to this song non-stop, singing “ah...

Reflections from Amy

The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra. ~ Jimmy Johnson Last week we took Andrew to Iowa City for testing for a learning disability and he was diagnosed with dyslexia. It wasn’t a huge surprise as it is what we had suspected but what we should do...
