Paige is a Senior she is the Captain of the Hockey Team, she is taking some college courses. She is being scouted for Hockey Scholarships. Paige works part time in a Sports Store. She would like to go to school for Pre Med.
Noah would be technically a Senior in High School, but he is a PSEO Student at a Community College. (Post Secondary Enrollment Options.) He plays guitar and violin. He is working part time at Noodles and Co. He is in Vex Robotics. Noah will graduate twice in May of 2017…from Northland Community College with a two year degree and a week later from High School. He would like to go to school for Pre Med.
Adam is in ninth grade. He plays the Cello. He is in Vex Robotics.
Chance is twelve. He struggles with stairs and sleeps a lot. He trys to play ball every day but running tires him out. He still manages to walk to the mailbox everyday.
Trica and Richard still have Jade and one cat….Bailey.
Savannah has a big dog named Chewy and Luna her kitty.
Madison has the horse of a dog Deacon and her kitty Ziggy.
Paige has a new pig named Sigourney.
Sadly Paige’s kitty Skittles escaped through an open door and was never seen again.
Jen’s Miney is eleven, Andy’s Little Elvis is six…I think he loves Noah more than Andy! Chaucer the cat survived another year…this year he survived chewing through Christmas Tree lights.
Biggest Change: We didn’t have any huge changes this year. We lead a quiet life.
Biggest Frustrations: The medical and medicare system. Waiting on the phone listening to elevator music for who knows how long before a real person will answer your questions. People who use perfume or aftershave and say “I just use a little.”
Deaths: My Aunt Grace died in May she was 82 years old. This year a number of neighbor ladies died; Hazel Eskola died last December 29 at the age of 87, Vi Mack died in January at the age of 89, Mary Harris died in May she was 83 and Irene Mack was 94 when she died in May. I knew all these ladies from the time I was born…except for Mary…I met her when I was about 14. May they all Rest In Peace.
Births: None in our immediate family.
Happiest Moments: Time spent with our children and grands…and of course Chance.
