2008 has been a busy year for the two of us. We spent our summer vacation visiting the west coast of Michigan and enjoyed the charm of its lakeside bed and breakfasts. In the fall we returned to class: Kristin to her 600+ kindergarten, first-graders, and second-graders; and David to Shippensburg University's college student personnel program (he plans to finish in 2009), with a half-time internship at Penn State Harrisburg's career services office. Despite our scant free time, we still make room for fun. Kristin knits—and has suggested we acquire a sheep to provide a steady yarn supply. David volunteered at the grand opening of the Lego store in King of Prussia, PA--and still hasn't sorted all of his pieces yet.
