A couple of new things we encountered over the 2016 summer: No friends car camping on our property (for free, or for a fee, we've been asked both). Only the people who are on the booking can stay overnight, or use the camper facilities. Also no friends' dogs.
We are retired educators. Sam is a teacher of deaf and hard-of-hearing students and worked in the mountain schools for 23 years. Sharon worked with families in the Head Start program for 20 years, providing education and resources to help them move out of the poverty cycle. We have been busy during our retirement, Sam teaching guitar to local students, writing historic poetry, and creating videos on Leadville history. Sharon has worked as copy editor for the local paper, and both have spent years caring for his elderly father in Boulder, who recently passed away. We raised our twin daughters in this cabin, where they had their "humble beginnings" before going away to college at CU Boulder, living in the family home at Chautauqua. They are now out of college and on their own, one a staff member at the Auraria Campus Library in Denver, and the other working at the Santa Barbara Zoo in California.
We are eager to share what our girls used to call their "Happy Home" with visitors who will appreciate its special and unique nature.
