I've not done a good job of keeping up with blogging lately, but moments are speeding past that I want to document for the years to come. One of those is a big monument in our lives. Our eldest child, Damon, graduated from college. Chad and I left Elena beh...

A Few Days in Hanoi
  We took a few days at Christmas to get away and reconnect as a family.  It seems like ages since summer when we were together last.  There is always a lot to catch up on and sometimes a change of scenery is good.  We immediately loved the fast pace of Han...
