I can’t believe it has been that long since we became parents.  Looking at the pictures of my pregnancy with her and the delivery and first few months, it seems like it wasn’t that long ago we were arriving home with this little bundle and not really knowing what parenting was going to be like.  What a treat it has been.  An amazing gift, an amazing life I sou;don’t change for anything in the world.  I can’t wait to see what adventures we’ll have this year.

Volcán Calbuco … another eruption in Chile

Chile, a country with a desert on one end, snow and rain forest on the other.  A country with many lakes and mountains throughout its length.  A beautiful country.   And with it, seems like there is always the threat of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.   Growing up I remember feeling small earthquakes that we didn’t give much thought or importance.  It’s what we did.  It’s what people do there.

But there are times, the effects are huge.  Look at this video and photos.  Incredible.

Whatever you do, or dream you can, begin it.

Boldness has genius and magic and power in it.
