Scott reports a most enjoyable summer. Here at The H Group he kept busy with client meetings and planning but he and his wife Linden did slip away for a bit of camping, exploring SE Oregon and Steens Mtn and spent time with family and friends.
Jessica and family had a quiet summer break. Their new cavapoo Oliver has settled in, but he is still working on that pesky thing called potty training. The kids all seem happy to be back in school with sports seasons well underway.
James, Heather and the boys had quite the busy summer. After wrapping up another successful baseball season (Levi started T-Ball this year, so dad was on double duty) they packed up their home in West Linn and made their big move over the mountains to Bend, OR. While James continues to commute into Portland to visit with clients, they’ve loved every minute of their time in their new home. With Levi starting kindergarten this year, James and Heather have greatly appreciated the boys both being in the same school!
Lindsay ended the summer with a wedding! She exchanged vows with her husband in an intimate ceremony at his family’s farm. You may notice her name change on future correspondence as she is now Mrs. Lindsay Burton.
Fred and Amy attended a wedding in Oxford, UK during the month of September. The wedding was for their daughter’s best friend and also provided them the opportunity to travel with Taylor and Serge throughout England. They also had a short visit in Boston/Cape Cod to see their son’s future wedding venue and his fiancé’s great family.
Dale and his wife Shirley enjoyed the Pacific Northwest summer, completing a landscape maintenance project on their home. Their children and grandchildren were together for the annual family vacation in central Oregon, with grandkids coming from southern California. Dale completed continuing education classes for his professional designation. Dale and Shirley also finally were able to enjoy an extended cruise vacation which had been planned since 2019 and delayed by COVID. They traveled to the US and Canadian Eastern Seaboard, visiting New York and Boston, as well as Halifax, Quebec City, and Montreal. Dale has a new appreciation for the formation and history of our country’s foundation. And he even noticed one of the eight colonists killed in the Battle of Lexington was Samuel Hadley. There’s no known direct link to Dale’s family, but family lineage may be present. Dale and Shirley are looking forward to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays when they will once again have their family together. Dale’s relationship with his clients after 40 years in practice continues to be very rewarding.
Heather and her husband enjoyed two trips to British Columbia this summer. One in June for a niece’s wedding and one week of vacation with extended family in Desolation Sound. The remainder of the summer was spent relaxing at home and trying to keep up with watering during our incredibly dry summer. We’re looking forward to the cooler weather and gearing up for the holiday season.
