Onward with Fireworks

The Fourth of July has always been a very special day here in the Valley. Our eclectic Warren Parade draws thousands to our small historic village to see the various floats parade one mile down Main Street. The floats are traditional, creative, and political.  And in an election year like this we normally get our fair share of politicians...

Toddlering Around the Valley: June

Okay, I am now back to my original title “Toddlering Around the Valley” versus my last edition, which was supposed to come out as, “Toddlering Around My House in the Valley”.  Boy does it feel good to have warmer weather, less snow and mud, and the ability to now get out and about a bit more in the Valley.  So how are we toddlering around?

Beef Bourguignon

Reflecting Back on the Season

Our 2019/2020 season would have come to an end this last Sunday after 159 days, but unfortunately it came to an abrupt ending seven weeks early. I know how disappointing this was for so many of us, especially looking up at the snow covered trails and ideal spring skiing temperatures...

Homemade Pizza Time

Last week, I wrote about how my family has added a weekly "Quarantine Cooking Class" to our homeschool curriculum.  The premise is simple: one night per week, my son and daughter must each plan and cook a family-friendly meal using me as their Sous Chef (I cannot tell you how much each child relishes bossing me around in an attempt to create their menu vision)!

My Children are Transforming into Chefs

Like many of you, I have spent a lot of time at home with my wife and children lately. For the first few days of our Stay at Home order, I listened with half an ear while they sat at the kitchen table and learned a variety of subjects.
