Our year began with a New Year’s celebration at the California home of our daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren. We visited the new Anderson Collection museum at Stanford University, as well as the enormous iron Serra sculpture. Our granddaughter displayed her riding skills, and we enjoyed our grandson’s senior year of high school. Our friends, Joe and Kathy of the sailing catamaran KATIE KAT entertained us, and we visited with more wonderful relatives who came for a visit while we were there.
After we departed California, we received news that our grandchildren were outdoing themselves. David peformed on his cello in the Menlo-Atherton High School Orchestra at Carnegie Hall in NYC. Sarah won top honors in dressage at her first horse show, and scored well in jumping. David graduated from high school with a special academic award.
