This year our expanding family has been blessed in many ways.
Tom and Tracey were married in July, honeymooned in Rome and were even able to meet Pope Francis.
VT (Chris) and Rebecca’s daughter Elizabeth is now 13 months old, and just started walking last week!
Rolf “retired” from UW-Madison in August, but continues to keep busy half time with graduating his remaining 7 students and with his consulting and editorial work.
Rolf’s retirement is something that we are both looking forward to very much.
After graduating Rolf’s students and taking care of some of the chores at home that we have neglected for 25 years, we hope to have more time for other pursuits. For now, we are really enjoying the ability to sleep in a bit some mornings and to take our time over our morning coffee.
Finally, roughhousing with our one-year-old puppy Pepper keeps us laughing and on our toes.
We wish everyone a very Happy, Merry, and Blessed Christmas!
