Here's a link to the 2004 yearly letter.

Happy Holidays!

Charles is 12 and Joseph is 10.

The year started off with a thick coat of ice and snow...
...and our beautiful plum tree split in two!

Joseph had a blast playing in the snow.
Charles loves music...

...and is still obsessed with insects.

Charles revealed his alter ego in history class - Julius Caesar!

Joseph had fun in P.E. class - home school style!

Joseph completed both 4th and 5th grades as a long distance student enrolled in Calvert School, Baltimore, Maryland.

This waterfall in the nearby gorge is so cool!

To keep your family out of trouble, put them in a hole...
... or in a tree!
We vacationed on the Olympic Penninsula...
...and saw the mysterious Mima mounds (giant gopher mounds?);
a wonderful tidal pool with urchins and tiny hermit crabs;
and a starfish we thought was a toy at first.

Charles went to summer camp with his best friend, Noah.

Despite raging forest fires at Lake Chelan, we still made our annual visit ...

and enjoyed horseback riding at nearby Alta Lake.

After many years of silence, Mt.St. Helens erupted in September. More action is expected.
You can see the latest activity here.

Best wishes to all!
