the letter

Our Year in Haiku, for you

Doug ~ fine dad, grandpa,

Best father-in-law and friend,

Will be missed dearly.


Paige showed running spark,

Earning multiple ribbons

In her track events.


Mason joined stage band,

Jazzing up his trombone beats.

Next stop, New Orleans?


Disneyland again?

Oh yes, we are obsessive.

Well, Stephanie is.


Tumalo State Park,

Where chipmunks stalk the campers

But aren’t too vicious.


Cape Disappointment –

Lewis and Clark tried to warn;

We camped anyway.


Weekend in Vegas?

Friends, dancing, Crazy Horse show?

Can’t talk about it.

The 12-year old boy

Is involved in Drama Club.

A natural choice.


The girl chose strings class,

Picking up the viola

To marvel us all.


Gone: Mazda sedan

Purchased: rollercoaster-car

(Stu’s Mini Cooper)


Beautiful classroom

In a brand-new green building;

Blissful teacher dreams.

Kids beg for a dog,

Parents want live-in masseuse,

Yet all still feel blessed.


~ Wishing you a merry 2011 ~
