We don’t get the chance to see Grandpa very often. But this summer we were so lucky to be able to spend some time with him.He lives on Orcas Island. We had the best time and our week was filled with wonderful memories!!! Thank you Grandpa!

To arrive at grandpas is no easy feat. We caught the early morning flight to Seattle, drove to the coast and then took the ferry over to Orcas.

Jacob turned 5 while we were on vacation! We had a double-party for Jacob and Anna (who had her b-day 2 days after we came home) It was so fun for them to celebrate their special day with Grandpa and the rest of the family.

We miss you Grandpa, and are already looking forward to our next visit!

Ms. Libby

We have been blessed with WONDERFUL violin teachers that have reached in and taken hold of inspiration and set it in motion...

Ms. Libby was that sort of teacher. This was our final lesson and we soaked up every last bit of instruction we possibly could.

She is Boston bound, on to pursue more of her passion. Even with a Masters in violin performance already under her belt. Even with 50+ of her students begging her to stay!!

But pursue her dreams she must. And we are happy for her and excited to hear of all the good things to come.
