Scott and Linden enjoyed the warmer temperatures and sunny skies on their annual sailing trip in the Gulf of California. They report a warm holiday in spite of the cooler temperature in the NW as they had a full house with friends and family during the holiday season.
The change of fall to winter has brought a new favorite sport to Jessica’s household. Swapping the cold outdoor fall cross country meets for indoor toasty winter swim meets. Oliver continues to spread puppy cheer, and all are looking forward to enjoying the holidays with family.
James, Heather, Levi and Owen welcomed their newest addition, Brooks William, to the family. While tired, Heather and James enjoyed a wonderful holiday season with their now three boys and continue to love their new home in Bend.
Lindsay welcomed her second son, Amos, in early December and spent the holidays at home with her newly expanded family.
Fred, Amy and their family are excited to announce the birth of Beau Sandrali. We have so appreciated the opportunity to visit with him and help support the parents. Grandparenting is easier – all of the access and a good night’s sleep.
The end of 2023 for Dale was highlighted with an annual visit to clients in the Seattle area, discussing Annual Reviews and planning for 2024. Dale and Shirley took a few extra days to explore Victoria, B.C., enjoying the harbor area and outlying coastal communities. They also loved attending Grandparents Day at the small private school attended by their two younger granddaughters in Orange County, SoCal. There aren’t many things better for grandparents than being included in the lives of their grandkids! And, as always, professional Continuing Education classes and conferences were attended to stay current on important changes and developments in our field. Dale is looking forward to serving clients in 2024!
Heather and her husband enjoyed a few weekend get-aways during the last quarter of the year. Relaxing trips to the coast and Northern Washington were the perfect mix of time away and time with extended family. Sickness and injuries caused last minute changes to Christmas plans, but we were still able to enjoy celebrating with family. Sometimes a less hectic holiday schedule can be a blessing!!
