These almost-summer days are full to bursting.  The weather has changed, and suddenly we’re soaking up these amazing days from sunup (4 am) to sundown (after 9 pm).  Yesterday in Boulder it was 100 degrees, and back home in the mountains, an unbelievable 80 degrees.  In these last few days before David comes home, we’re…

After nine months of snow and winter, we’re not about to let summer slip by unnoticed!
