Notes from Steve

I was with “the guys” -- my friends from high school, college, and beyond this past weekend in Des Moines. It was awesome - we haven’t hung out in a long time and it was just really nice. We grilled steaks, drank beer, and hung out in downtown Des Moines....

Greg's Greetings

I was struggling this week with what to write for my article. I shared my struggle with a couple co-workers that I confide in and asked for their thoughts. During our conversation we discussed a few amazing things that we had seen staff do lately, not because there was something...

Amy's Reflections

Ashley's Perspective

Recently we took a short trip to a hotel with an indoor water park. Rylan was very excited for this trip as we had told her last summer about the indoor water park with a pirate ship. However, things did not work out for us to take her until recently....

Notes from Steve
