I knew I was smart, passionate, and determined enough to achieve whatever it was that my heart desired; and, thanks to the clarification that comes with hindsight, I can admit that I thought I was the...

  • It’s Fourth of July weekend!  Yay!  Parades, fireworks at State Fair, sparklers, selling bracelets before the parade, picnic at church grounds, and ice cream cones—right?  Nope, not this year!  This year it was Blue Mounds State Park, bunking out in a cabin, digging for fruit in the cooler, playing...
