My blog is full of the ordinary, in effort to bring some reality to the media. I am a great mom who makes mistakes, avoids cleaning, and can’t get-it-all-done, like most people I know. LIKE YOU, I am extraordinarily blessed with a great family, and opportunities to make a positive difference in this world – one day at a time.

Wednesday – Family

A few of us at the reservoir, “The Rez”


After coming home from our road trip (AND GETTING 4 NEW TIRES ON THE VAN) Dunc took off to hike in CA, Adam started a job in Phoenix for the rest of the summer, and Curt and I hit the road again.
– Fun in Pagosa, CO with some of my amazing family! Curt cut his cheek pretty bad, 15 minutes after we arrived. Thank goodness my brother-in-law is a doctor and glued the cut shut with super glue.

Piedra Falls


– Lots of visiting and catching up in Delta, UT with the Johnson side of my family! HERE is a great write up about my Uncle’s home. The family is so big, though, we have the reunion at the city park. We camp on the ball field 🙂

I share a glimpse into my REAL life each day on this “Today” page. I am going to start making each “Today” it’s own post to encourage comments. Tomorrow I will index this post under Past “Today”s.

Explanation of the “Today” page: My blog is full of the ordinary, in effort to bring some reality to the media.
