One of the few things I will miss about Tacoma, Washington, is Grant Elementary, school for learning through the expressive arts. Myka and Haily had dance, art, theater and music classes all as a part of their education. They also made wonderful friends that we will miss dearly!
Haily and her homies...take note of Keiffer on the way left...Haily's kindergarten love... She's just a bit taller than the other five-year-olds- sheesh! We have created amazon children over here in the house of Gary!
Isabella, Madeleine and Myka.
Ally and Haily Jane.
Here we have Tigress and Viper from Kung Fu Panda. And Baby Josy was a little skeleton. This was all as we were packing the Uhaul and getting the house ready for our renters... exhausting to say the least! Thank you to our friends and family who helped and who came to say goodbye before we all left Washington the next morning.

I got to teach a digital photography class for the YMCA pilot program, The Apprentice Circle. The YMCA is implementing teen and preteen arts programs and I was glad to be a part of their initial class trials. I taught eight teens who were interested in learning to take photos- and we focused on different ways to take pictures as well as the editing process. Here are some of their pics.
