Both retired but still working freelance (Mauri: Early Bird Recordings; Sherry: Word Specialist). We celebrate an anniversary every July 30. This year the number reached 25.
Our English setter, Mr. Darcy, a.k.a. Darcy Girl. She’s nine now. This was her reaction to learning it was National Dog Day.
Here’s our “immediate family” in chronological order:
Ben Carlson lives in Michigan and works for Yanfeng Automotive Interiors as director, business planning, North America, so his business card says. He lives for summer when he can enjoy his favorite toys.
The Anderson family lives in Arizona. Bailey graduated from Dordt College in Iowa and married his sweetheart, Sarah. They live in Surprise, Arizona, where Bailey is a football coach intern at Ottawa University Arizona and Sarah is putting her occupational therapy degree to good use at Team 4Kids. Marissa is a junior at Grand Canyon University near home and Cassidy is a sophomore at Gilbert Christian High School, busy with sports and student council. Dusty travels weekly to Oregon (and other places) as vice president for construction and real estate at Sage. Quinn is a homemaker, organizes/leads about six home builds in Juarez every year, and oversees the ongoing ministry of Babies of Juarez.
In 2015, John Williams and Oscar moved to Oregon with Rachel in her last days. Oscar is ten years old and in fifth grade at the school his mom attended. John continues his art studies and cares for Oscar.
Pete, Linsey, Will, and Lincoln Macy live in Oregon. Linsey loves selling real estate with Premiere Property Group, LLC, and Pete manages the home and the lives of an active eight-year-old and a busy four-year-old.
Taylor and Beth Carlson live in Haymarket, Virginia. Declan, at age three, is big brother to sisters, Avery and Emery, born in July 2017. Taylor does his share of travel as a field service engineer for Agilent Technologies. Beth cares for the children and loves her near-daily CrossFit workout. She faithfully posts videos of the kids on Instagram, much to their grandma’s delight.
John, Erin, Sage, and Brynn Macy live in Oregon. John works for Nike as the liaison to contractors who make product for professional and school teams and special events. Erin fits in two part-time jobs while caring for 3rd grader Sage (9) and first grader Brynn (7). John and Erin also have a photography business.
