With social distancing being our new normal and having our grandchildren for 7 days we have taken this opportunity to teach them a few things in between their online schooling.
We worked with them as we planted potatoes, asparagus, onions, and rhubarb. We have a trail in our yard and they have hiked and biked it and recently we took them rock climbing for the first time on a small ledge in our yard. We live on the continental divide and it is a wondrous place. It backs up to Mountain Bridge Wilderness and it is wild.
They have learned to make homemade noodles and pizza in our wood-fired pizza oven. It is a joy to mentor them and spend time with them.
We have also spent a lot of time on the phone checking in on neighbors and family. It is nice to have conversations instead of text and emails, which we get occasionally when we drive to wifi access.
I am deeply touched by the amount of love and care our community has for each other. If you need anything, please let us know.
Kim and John
