Low Elevation Adventures
Or: a story in procrastination of the homework I have due on Monday
We have officially lived in Colorado for 3 months! And in these three months I have learned so much - about myself, about the world around me, and about taking care of infants. Here's a quick list of the things I can put words to:
- How to drive on an 8-lane highway in rush hour without crying
- How to change 10 poopy diapers in a row without breaking a sweat (and mostly without crying)
- That most people own bear spray, but have never had to use it
- Dogs are allowed basically everywhere - even (especially?) the bars
- How to parallel park correctly on the first try
- Sign language for "all done," "please," "milk," "moo," and "stop"
- How great one mile above sea level feels when you've just stood almost 3 miles above
- The symptoms of altitude sickness
- That the best hugs can come from a sweaty, smelly, one-year-old who is running at you full force
- and, that it feels incredible to be in a room full of people who love reading as much as you do.
Its been a wild 3 months, and it simultaneously feels like we've been here longer and shorter.
Here are some iPhone pictures that I haven't posted yet:
