Here's a link to the 2009 yearly letter.


Charles is 17 years old and a senior in high school.

Joseph is 15 years old and a junior in high school.

Dave now qualifies for senior discounts at Denny's ...

and Jean isn't far behind him.

2009 was a fun year ...

full of celebrations, ...

learning new skills (yes that is Dave cooking!), ...

and family fun.

In 2009, the "Bow Tie Club" for guys was formed in response to the "Red Hat Society".

We bought a condo on the northern Oregon coast ...

in Rockaway Beach ...

where Dave happily dreams of retirement.

Charles braved the cold ocean wind and dyed Easter eggs there.

Even Simba visited the coast (and that was an adventure).

Charles still loves playing the piano ...

and discovered he enjoys dance too.

Joseph is obsessed with rock climbing and bouldering.

He pitted himself against Smith Rock ...

and made it to the top.


Charles' math team worked hard to win fourth place in the State competition.

Charles looked really sharp for his prom.

Our search for the perfect college ...

led us to Tucson, Arizona ...

and a visit to Biosphere 2.

We watched the Rockaway Beach 4th of July parade ...

that featured some Sponge Bob theme floats.

We visited Disney Land and California Adventure for the first time.

Charles loved Disney Land's Space Mountain roller coaster ...

while Joseph much preferred the Tower of Terror.

We wish you a very happy new year!
