Meet the Family

Hi I’m Justine, The new “Mountain Mom”!  Might not be what you expected but here I am! Grew up rodeoing in the Black Hills of South Dakota, Moved to the East side for college, back to the North Central part on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation and now back to the Mountains!  I love to help people through the Tour Of Kindness, travel, play with my kids, and ride!

Here is my Husband, William, AKA “The Rancher”.  He didn’t want a picture of just him so here he is helping Nora feed a calf that lost its mom!  He is a fourth generation cattleman and was a huge part of helping our family to live out our dream of owning a ranch in Montana.  He is a handyman, a fixer, a rancher, and an awesome husband and father!

Here is Nora (She is a delightful young lady who is ranchy but fancy, loves skirts and boots and has a way with horses that I’ve never quite seen.  She loves horses, dogs, and dirt bike!  

And then there is “Wildman,” Cody!  Everything he does is at 100 mph and I find myself thinking, wow, how will I keep up when he gets older.  He loves to be outside, it doesn’t matter if it is -10 or 100 degrees, he wants out there!

And the youngest and most bossy, “Twinkles” she made a very dramatic entrance into this world and was diagnosed with Treacher Collins Syndrome. In late 2018 She decided that her time on this earth was complete and broke our families hearts as we gave her to the angels unexpectedly.   Our family continues to operate the Tour Of Kindness giving presentations to schools, businesses, and communities to teach the importance of Kindness, Acceptance, Diversity and Inclusion in day to day life.

Last but certainly not least is Holly.  The best dog in the world (I know everyone thinks they have the best, but really we do :P!).  She is our go to dog for about anything, and she takes awesome care of the kids.  Her and Nora were born the same month and “Holly” was Nora’s first word….Yes I know…UNREAL – – this mother was unhappy!
