Dear Family and Friends,
Christmas greetings to everyone!
Time truly does fly by as we get older – didn’t I just update this page? 2018 was a tame year – not too many wild vacation stories and no wildfire evacuations in this neighborhood, thank God!!
Eric continues to grow like a weed. Both boys are at or around my (Dan’s) current height. Alex has slowed and maybe stopped but I think Eric is still going, being he’s only 14.
Eric continues to compete in Soccer, Basketball and Track, which keeps Mom and Dad busy running him to practices, games, meets, etc… I could fill a library with our “Eric sports pictures” (see 2018 in Review Picture Gallery). He just made the top soccer team for his age group for Spring of 2019. We just need to get him to the end of middle school–he can’t wait to be done with it and in high school!
Alex has continued running both track and cross country and made it to State in both, running the 4 x 800 relay in track and the 5k in cross country. His relay team also ran in the Kansas Relays in the spring in Lawrence, KS which was a good reason to visit KC and family. His You-Tube channel (Z3cubing) hit 100,000 subscribers this year and he also completed his Eagle project for Boy Scouts. Academically he’s amazed us, being at the top of his class this year!
Janaye is in her Junior year at CSU studying civil engineering. She has been working for the city of Loveland, CO as a Traffic Engineering Technician, which has confirmed for her that she does not want to go into traffic engineering! She had an adventure to Jamaica this summer on a mission trip with her church. We’ll miss her this Christmas as she is traveling with Jonnavin to visit his family in Ireland.
To see a few pictures from the past year, click on the “2018 in Review-Picture Gallery” link above and check ’em out!! Oh yeah, if you can, scroll all the way to the bottom of this page and leave us a note to let us know you stopped by – Thanks!
We wish you a joyous Christmas season! God bless you all!!
Dan, Michelle, Janaye, Alex and Eric
