Jonathan took us on a "Driving Miss Daisy" trip Sunday afternoon. We drove in his neat hybrid car in the Eastern foot hills of Gilroy on Canada Road. Just five miles away is this bucolic wonderful valley is another world. We saw deer, hawks, cattle and wild turkeys. It was a lovely and very enjoyable afternoon. Josh and Julia came along too. The week before Jonathan got some striking shots of a fox family in the same area!
Lance and Danielle left most of their household goods in storage in Monterey and stuffed the rest (including three cats) in their car, as you can see! They stopped by our house on April 11, 2012 to say goodbye. Lance flew to Texas the next morning, leaving Danielle with her family in Antioch until Lance returns in August.
Lance is happy to have a diploma in his hand and the grueling classroom work behind him. He is going to Texas for training, then to Korea in August or September. Danielle is hoping to go with him. We have been to four graduations at DLI! Lane, John Michael and Logan graduated from the Arabic course and Lance took another road in Korean studies.
