We both are still heavily involved with computers in one way or the

and in the fall she played soccer. She and her dad are taking Violin
lessons together. Jeff is 6 and will start 1st grade. He is just an
easy-going kind of guy. He enjoys school very much. This was his first
year to play T-ball. He liked playing, but wished he was old enough
to play without the T-stand! The family cross-country skis in the beautiful
mountains this area is blessed with.
We have twin daughters, Nancy and Joyce, ages 33. Nancy and Bob
have two sons. Kai is 5 and will start kindergarten. He is the funny
one of the group. He is looking forward to school and playing soccer
for the first time. His brother Campbell will be 2 the 21st of July.
So far he is just a happy baby and thinks his big brother is the greatest.
Nancy is a stay at home mom at this time and finds this the best job
of all. Bob is a counselor at a prison for children. It's a hard job
but he is very gifted at working with the kids.
Joyce and Eric Phillips have one son Keegan. He was 5 May 31st. He will
be starting kindergarten also. He is an all-round boy. I can't think

of Lacey just south of Seattle. Eric is a planner for the transportation
department in Pierce County, also just south of Seattle.
David, our youngest is 31 and at this time is living at home recovering
from extensive surgery to his knee. He is not to walk on the leg until
July 15th. My guess is that things will be very boring before he is
back on his feet. His interests are long bike rides and learning to
Richard and I have been retired for six years and don't miss anything
about working but we do miss seeing our co-workers as often as we once
did. Richard has taken art lessons in oil painting on canvas and is
now a certified instructor. He teachers 4-5 times a month. I'm always
on the lookout for old linens and lace, which I design and sew into
different projects. Last summer for our 40th wedding anniversary we
spent 3 weeks in Paris, France. What a lovely city. I'm sure we'll go
again. I was able to purchase some very old French lace that is almost
too dear to use.
Thankfully we still have the pitter patter of 4 little paws of our darling
four-year-old Boston terrier.

of Coyle and started a small cow/calf operation of black angus. We now
have a home on the acreage where Ivan spends a lot of time doing whatever
men do in the country. I visit the country occasionally, but I like
being close to all the big city conveniences.
