What a summer we had! If you noticed we haven’t posted on here for a while, its because we were happily busy seeing many of you in person. We got back to Quito a couple weeks ago after spending 3 weeks in San Diego, 4 weeks in Bremerton/Seattle, and a week in Washington, D.C. It was a great time...

On June 20, we got to watch as all our seniors graduated. It was such a great feeling to realize that each of them had become so much more than just a name to us.

Endings are funny things.  I’ve had a lot of them in my life, and really got pretty good at winding down, saying goodbye, packing things up, and moving somewhere completely new about every four years.  There were always some tears and pangs of loss, yet there was something wonderful about taking...

There are a lot of things we’ll miss about Seattle.  That view is one of them.  At least once a week, we would walk a few short blocks from our apartment in Magnolia to a park overlooking the Seattle skyline. In fact, we were surrounded by quite a few amazing views and when it wasn’t raining...
