Cucumber Gulch

A little about me…I have been a Stay At Home Mom since 2014! I was a Systems Engineer and worked for a few different defense contractors. In 2010 my husband and I were living in California and I worked for Skunk Works. I loved my job but we decided that the Antelope Valley of California was not where we wanted to live forever or raise a family. So we worked on finding a new “forever home”. That turned out to be Colorado. We will never leave Colorado and if we did it would be another mountain state.

Anyway, I have been home with our kids since 2014. Our kids are now 7 and 9 years old. When COVID hit, our son finished up the school year doing remote school as most kids did. The next school year, our schools were going back 4 days a week, but there were a ton of restrictions. Lunch in the classrooms, 6 foot social distance, quarantines, etc…so we decided home school was a great option. And it was! we had so much flexibility. We were able to ski on weekdays, etc.. it was fabulous! This year my oldest decided he wanted to go back to school and see his friends. So they are both back in school and so far it is going great for them. BUT they have been home with me for 1.5 years and I miss them so much.

Anyway, I digress a bit. My days are very different than what they have been. I am no longer home schooling. I don’t have two kids in tow. So I take mornings to myself. That might be running, biking, hiking, etc… Today I went and took a walk with my camera in Cucumber Gulch.
