As can be seen by the picture, our family has grown since the last reunion.  We've added another lovely daughter-in-law (Monica), and 3 more beautiful grandchildren, bringing the total to four for me, and six for Jon.  Christopher and Matthew live in the Seattle area, so visits are doubly enjoyable, just not often enough.

Retirement still remains elusive, especially after the current economic rollercoaster ride we've all probably been on.  I'm hopeful that within the next 2-3 years I can make my exit, with Jon right behind.  Meantime, our health is good (relatively speaking), and we both enjoy our work, so we'll just keep on keeping on.

40th Reunion Update

Jon and I are enjoying the prospects of retirement (note I said "prospects") but both of us continue to be a part of the 8 to 5 crowd.  I'm the program advisor for the Honors Program at the University of Idaho and Jon continues to operate "Renovate," where I also spend a part of my time with the business and accounting aspects of the business.  With any luck we'll be able to retire in the next six or seven years.

Our children are, of course, grown and gone (with the exception of one), living in far-flung places (Matthew is in grad school in Washington, D.C.), the others choosing to live a bit closer, all on the west coast. My one and only granddaughter is 2 and lives with her mommy and daddy in Kirkland, WA, a short 4 hours and 35 minutes from my doorstep to hers!  Two of Jon's four grandchildren live outside of Spokane, another in Portland, and the youngest granddaughter is here in Moscow, but we don't see any of them as often as we'd like. Perhaps retirement will change that!

Am looking forward to seeing everyone at the reunion and am hopeful that those who haven't made it to previous gatherings will be there to help celebrate the 40th!
