Countless times after we have done a school assembly, a small child has approached us with big saucer eyes and whispered softly “Do you live in a tipi?” To set the record straight, we do not live in a tipi. We live in a custom built house on the west side of Colorado Springs, CO. Here’s some pictures:
We hope your home brings you as much peace, happiness, and joy as we have known in ours.
Cherokee Prayer Blessing
May the Warm Winds of Heaven
Blow softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit
Bless all who enter there.
May your Mocassins
Make happy tracks
in many snows,
and may the Rainbow
Always touch your shoulder.
