a link to
the 2015 yearly letter.
In December 2014, Charles graduated from the University of Washington
with two degrees - one
in Electrical Engineering and another one in Applied Mathematics.
Joseph graduated in June 2015 from Western Washington University. He
also earned two degrees, one in Psychology
and one in Mathematics.
At the end of July, Joseph packed up his room in Bellingham, WA ...
... and said "goodbye" to the beautiful Western Washington University
campus, and came home to take graduate-level courses in Applied
Charles is working as an electrical engineer ...
... and is renting this cute house, just a short walk to his job
in downtown Vancouver.
It is great to have both of our sons nearby again. Joseph and
Charles love hanging out together.
We continue to enjoy the Oregon coast with its colorful annual kite
... and the spectacular 4th of July fireworks display.
In August, Dave found a new friend to go with him to the Burning Man
They had a bit of trouble on the way there when the RVgot hung up
on a pole while pulling up to a curb.
Black Rock City was a little bit dusty...
... but it was worth it to experience all of the amazing sights at the
festival, like this traveling Victorian house art-car ...
... a trebuchet (catapult) launching flaming pianos ...
... the awe-inspiring temple with its "concentrated humanity" ...
... and, of course, the traditional burning of the 60-foot Man at
the conclusion of the festival.
In September, Jeans' sister Liz came out for a visit, and spent time at
the Oregon Coast with us.
Dave still travels the world for his job at Wacom. Due to an
unscheduled stop on the way to Japan, he now can say that he has been
in all 50 states.
In November, Dave traveled to the island of Madiera, Portugal for a
conference. Poor guy!
Madeira is a mountainous volcanic island ...
... with incredible ocean views ...
... and tiny villages tucked away in its many valleys.
Our family and our friendly 12-foot snowman wish you and your loved
ones a very happy holiday and a fantastic new year!
