This Is Who and Why We Are
We, as a family, are driven and inspired by music. We love playing, singing, writing, watching and feeling music of all types. You will often see us at festivals or stopping to listen to street performers.

No matter what we do, or where we are, we are grounded by the idea that people are what’s important. That’s why we’re nurses, that’s why we’re doing what we do as parents.

As I sat next to the crystal clear turquoise river that shapes the various waterfalls of the Supai Nation, and I began to think : is the river the water, or is it the rock beneath it? Is it the substance that flows over it constantly, always coming, always leaving? Or is it the solid, […]
This thought was had at about the half-way point of a 10 mile hike down into the Grand Canyon… If I could leave my children anything, tangible or not, I would leave them a feeling. The feeling you get when you first begin to hear the waterfall you’ve been hiking so long to see. The […]
If happiness is the goal – and it should be, then adventures should be top priority.
