"Hi Donna- We might be going to Austin for the July 4th weekend but not sure yet. Contact me again when the time is closer. Imagine you are enjoying summer break now. It's hectic around my house, Andrew and Jillian both out for the summer.…"
"Uploaded a couple photos to my page, think you got one of the kids at Xmas but also put one of Chris and I taken at Thanksgiving. Hope your summer is awesome and that you will spend a few days in Okiboji with the girls!"
"Amazing we can be old enough to have kids graduating from college isn't it!! Andrew got his insulin pump last week so we are supporting him with that. He will be home this summer taking several classes at the local jr college. Jillian is…"
Great to hear from you!
Hope the graduation went well! Evan graduates from college this coming Sunday, working for a year and paying off some loans and then one we go for who knows how many more years - working towards a Phd. Just saw Jackie…"

"Great to hear from you and know you are well. The economic situation is concerning for sure. Am thankful the medical field seems pretty secure, at least for now. Don't expect to make it back to Iowa this summer (I'm getting married) but…"
Dodgers, Gaels, Hawks, Clones, Panthers, Bulldogs, or Tritons?
Live in Richardson, TX (suburb of Dallas). Mom of 3 with two in college. Moved to Dallas in 1981 when I married and graduated from Iowa Methodist School of Nursing. Work for the Department of Internal Medicine at UT Southwestern Medical Center. I love Texas but enjoy coming back to FD and my parents farm near Badger.
Very eclectic tastes-country, R&B, pop, etc. Love to hear Erick Hovey and his band play when I'm in town.
Favorite TV Shows:
Mavericks Basketball, Dallas Cowboys and OU Sooner football are my seasonal favs.
Great to hear from you!
Hope the graduation went well! Evan graduates from college this coming Sunday, working for a year and paying off some loans and then one we go for who knows how many more years - working towards a Phd. Just saw Jackie this last weekend and our local flea market and talked to Shelly a couple weeks ago. Wish we could get together with you sometime. Stay well and keep in touch!

Tresia is down in Austin Texas and she is involved with interior decorating and sales to contractors etc. She went ot ISU in that field and graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park New York. Worked as a chef in Chicago in a fancy country club and then moved to Washington D.C. and worked in several fancy restaurants. Lousy hours so she went back into interior decorating. All told she was out east for about nine years I guess. Then decided to come back to Iowa, returned to ISU got another degree in Social Work and then worked with teenaged troubled girls in Clinton for 3 years. Burned out there so headed south to Austin Texas. She doesn't cook or bake much now but does help a friend who bakes fancy cakes. I mean fancy. $400 to a couple thousand dollars each. Only in Texas. I will mention you to her when I talk to her. Probably this weekend or so. Spends her free time fishing. She was really excited over a 4 or 5 pound bass that she caught. Usually gets back to Iowa once a year.
It's so nice to hear from you! By the way, you look great, that must be your daughter next to you, she' pretty. I'm not sure if I realized that you ended up in Texas, I bet it's a great place to live.
I'm doing okay, happily married and healthy (as far as I know) but the employment situation here in Minnesota is terrible. It's been 3 years since I've had an steady mechanical engineering work so money is tight--I had the "big bucks" job. Mr. Hewitt's physics class sure brings back memories! I remember how much fun I'd have when I stayed over at your house, your parents were always good to me too. I vividly remember the night we watched "The Fly", it seemed pretty scary at the time.
We've only been home once since we lost Dad last August--that was very hard. Leslie's daughter (Jasmine who, oddly enough, lives in Texas too) is getting married in July and we're having a Larson family reunion that month too, so if you happen to be back you must let me know, it would be really nice to see you!
