BitterSweet Send-Off

Thursday night, we said farewell to our friends George and Karen. With them, we also had to say goodbye to their beautiful 13 months old daughter, Olivia "Livy", and their dogs, Buster and Ginger. After their 3 years living in Ballard area of Seattle, they are heading eastwards to Hamilton, Montana. Less than 500miles away, there will be plenty of opportunities to visit them. Nevertheless, we will miss our dear friends greatly!

the PATH

The University Journal was sitting on the dinner table, while Greg and I had breakfast together. It was carpool day, so Greg was over for breakfast before we went to work. On the cover of the journal was about a local Seattle company called PATH, located in the Ballard area. I figure the best way to understand this non-profit organization but pasting their mission statement.

"Our mission statement is to improve the health of people around the world by advancing technologies, strengthenig systems, and encouraging healthy behaviors."


By the end of breakfast, Greg and I signed ourselves up for their monthly tour. Sounds exciting. They also work on improving mother and child nutrition around the world, which is what Greg studied (Nutrition and Dietitics) in Uni. World! Here we come!
