We're from Mount Horeb, WI, located about 20 miles west of Madison.
My husband, Doug, is a middle school teacher and avid curler. I am an EC Special Ed. Teacher and infant massage instructor. I work for a local Birth to 3 program, teaching infant massage to families, doing home visits with families in which there is a child under the age of 3 with developmental delays of some kind, and working toward endorsement as an Infant & Early Childhood Mental Health Consultant.
Because of the sometimes draining effects of the work we do, we look for travel experiences that will take us out of our work reality and re-connect us with other parts of ourselves that don't get out to play as often! Canoeing, camping, hiking, taking in natural vistas....all good things for doing just that! Our boys (17 & 20) are in the stage of life of moving on, but they still seem okay with joining us now and then on our adventures.
