Wes and I recently watched this video from PBS Nature about the current state of the salmon industry. It was thoroughly disheartening, in much the same way that the Midwestern farming industry and even the childbirth industry is for us. The similarities are striking: in each instance we find ourselves asking the wrong questions and looking for solutions to problems we ourselves have created. In each case nature gave us a better model than those we have since created. Industry, indeed. You can help contribute to the health of our country's salmon population here.

brown county state park

The Kendall family took a brief trip as soon as Wyatt was out of school to Brown County State Park.We did a little camping, a little swimming, a little bike riding, and very little sleeping. Vacation? Not so much. Fun shared experience with memories for the long haul? Definitely.
