2006 Photos 

  • Winter 2006
    • Here are a few more pictures of Amber.  She loves to play in and around the pool.  We took her to a dog show to just walk around and see what it was like.  A nice lady gave her a pretty bandana to wear around her neck.

  • Spring 2006

    • St. Paul's did "The King and I" for their school play this year.  Valerie played the role of Lady Thiang (the King's head wife).  The kids worked really hard putting the show together and have every reason to be proud of the results.  Check out Valerie's black hair! 

    • I included one shot of Amanda in her "Mean Girls" costume.  She and some friends dressed up for their friend Christina's sweet sixteen party.

  • St. Paul's Graduation

    • Valerie graduated from 8th grade this year.  St. Paul's puts on quite a ceremony to send off the 8th graders as they leave for high school.  Included here are some pictures of Valerie in the graduation dress that Sue made for especially for her.  Hey  --  guess who got her braces off!

    • Valerie and her friend Danielle sang a duet at morning Chapel on graduation day.  Listen to it here.

  • Sheridan/Blackthorn SCUBA Trip

    • The Raytheon SCUBA Club did a 3-tank dive on June 2nd to the Sheridan, the Blackthorn, and Table Top.  The Sheridan and Blackthorn are two 180-ft. wrecks sitting in about 80 feet of water.  Table Top is a circular ledge.  We had a great day, with calm seas and 40+ ft. visibility.

  • Summer 2006

    • We finally bought a boat.  It's a 2003 Pursuit 2470 with twin Yamaha 150 outboards.  It was very well maintained and, with only 61 hours on the motors, it's practically like having a brand new boat.  Chris is really excited about spending more time on the water again.

    • We decided to vacation at home this year instead of doing our usual trip to Key Largo.  Sue and the girls did a lot of relaxing and Chris spent several days "bonding with the boat".  We also spent a day at Bush Gardens riding roller coasters and visiting other attractions.

  • Mechelle and Sean's Wedding

    • We took the family up to Wilmington in September for Mechelle and Sean's wedding.  They had a beautiful ceremony and reception at Scotland Run Golf Club.  It was great to see everybody and meet some members of Sean's family.

    • While we were in the area, we also took some time to visit with my cousin Donny, Aunt Judy, and Vic.  We spent a relaxing afternoon at a nearby park.

  •  Fall 2006

    • Chris, Bob, and Justin took a trip out to Rube Allan reef.  They dove the old Sand Key bridge rubble and some other artificial reef structure near the Rube Allan center buoy.  Both sites are about 50 feet deep.  Vis was about 15 feet.

  •  2006 Holidays

    • Valerie did a vocal recital at our local performing arts theater this year.  Listen to it here.
