COAFCC SNIPPETS

July 2021
SNIPPETS is a mini-newsletter designed to bring COAFCC members streamlined, timely information and support
Our Favorite Things
Another “Snippets” has arrived! In our efforts to contribute to our members achieving a better work/life blend, we have included a few of our members’ favorite things that remind us all how important it is to partake and share in the things that we enjoy and ground us outside of our professional lives. Enjoy and please contribute your photos, poems, or other Snippets of places, people, and times that remind us to breathe and take in the beauty that surrounds us in this world.  Please send submissions to aprilfreier@hotmail.com   

Kimberly Gent started us off by contributing photos she recently took at the Denver Botanic Gardens, a beautiful tapestry of nature that serves as a reminder to Kimberly that even within the city there is so much splendor around us.

Hidden Treasure in Adams County

Rebecca Pepin, JD

DESTINATION: ROCKY MOUNTAIN ARSENAL

Looking for some self-care in Adams County?   The Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge is the place for you! Located at 6550 Gateway Road in Commerce City, it is easy to find, just North of 56th Avenue and East of Hwy 2.  I usually start with the 11-mile drive because that is the best way to see the resident bison.  (Did you know CU’s mascot is actually a bison?!)  The drive often also turns up some mule deer or white-tailed deer.

The Perils of Summer Parenting Time in
Long-Distance Cases

Marlene Bizub, Psy.D.

Summer parenting time can take on a lot of different looks, especially in long-distance cases.  Even in cases where both parents are in the same locale, parents sometimes alter the schedule to allow for flexibility or longer periods of time with each parent.
