Springtime in Montana

| May 2, 2009

Well, I packed up and headed for Montana this past week and as promised, packed light.  I even had room to sleep.  To be fair I don’t have Sarah with me yet which saved space. She will join me in a few weeks and then stay until the end of the summer.  For now it’s […]

Every time I get back home I get the opportunity to work on my family history and genealogy projects.  I recently had a great aunt pass away who’s library yielded some new information.  This sparked a trip to Smithfield and Shelbyville Kentucky where many of my root grew. Below is a picture of four generations on […]

Sweat Pea Festival Of The Arts…

| September 28, 2007

We had the opportunity to attend the three day Sweat Pea festival of the Arts in Bozeman this summer.  I was immediately in love and just couldn’t get enough.  I have seen and performed at arts festivals all over the country and never have I witnessed anything like Sweat Pea.  It was really a great […]

Whitewater Rafting

| September 28, 2007

After camp was finished I hosted the youth group from my home church for a little Montana adventure.  Along with taking them to Yellowstone, we had the opportunity to do a little whitewater rafting on the Gallatin.  I took Sarah along which marked her first rafting experience.  She didn’t like getting splashed which really is […]

Back home and all together…

| September 27, 2007

    I realized today that Sarah and I have been home now for a month!    It’s been a bit difficult to return to our normal life and schedule after having spent the summer in Montana.  With the exception of being separated from Emily is was a fantastic and transforming summer.  We’ve been taking it easy and just […]

Here are photos of some of the wildlife we’ve seen lately.         Where I fish each day, Sarah’s first trout on a fly rod and others…            

The Madison River 1

| May 28, 2007

Last night one of the board members and his family took us to dinner and to see Pirates of the Caribbean.  Our truck died and since it’s a holiday weekend we decided to just leave it until Tuesday to save on the cost of repairs.  He loaned us his mini-van for the next couple of […]

Montana Weather

| May 26, 2007

      Here are a few new pictures.  One taken two weeks ago at home and then the ones we took today.  It was snowing like mad this morning at around 7am and dumped about 2 inches on us but then a couple of hours later it had mostly melted.  Strange Montana weather.      

Rockhaven Day 2

| May 23, 2007

Made it to Rockhaven Saturday evening just at dark.  The cabin they have for the Director is basically a shed with two beds in it so after making due Saturday night we all headed into town and picked up a few things to make it a bit more user friendly.  Below is a picture of […]

Yellowstone Vacation

| May 23, 2007

We took off this past week for Bozeman, which is where Sarah and I will stay for the next three months while I serve as Director for Rockhaven Camp. We decided to combine the trip up with a little vacation to Yellowstone since Emily had never been. It was a lot of fun and even […]
