Moab in the time of Coronavirus

When schools shut down, and before we actually knew how bad this pandemic was going to be, Natalie and I hightailed it to Moab for a few days of hiking and R&R in the sun.  Looking back, it probably wasn’t the most responsible choice, but at the time it seemed like a great idea.  We…

Modern Band performance at the talent show.  Mrs. Harvey offered a modern…
