From my tailgate…

The vacation continues, allow me to explain. ‘What will I do, if I can do anything I want’, like the book with a similar title. You know, like being on vacation all the time. With that thought, I began to pray. I want to paint, and drive around in the desert, (picture Monument Valley), I want …

Connecting With History

Connecting With History

Teaching history this year has been both challenging and rewarding. God has been good. In high school, we focused on American government first semester and Navajo history second semester.

Buff and Bronco fan, so tailgating seems natural, especially since the Buff’s are Bowl bound for the first time in years. Starting now, and working backward, I’ll leave you with a …
