Bailey is a sophomore at the University of Chicago, majoring in lingistuics. She has long been interested in languages and taught herselt Japanese while in high school, followed up by a trip to Japan where she got along quite well. SHe also speaks French quite well; her high school required a senopr thesis for honors certification and she wrote it, in French, on the Offenbach opera Les Contes d'Hoffmann. Spencer is a sophomore in high school and very into music. He plays piano, tuba and trombone and is in the school band, the jazz ensemble and who knows what else.

When it snows in Fort Collins, the kids have snow days which they occupy building snowpersons, dressing as cowboys and playing with legos.

Bailey and I went to Central City Opera for the children's performance of La Boheme. We also found time to make a little music of our own:

And we went fishing in the beautiful Poudre River, but didn't catch anything. Perhaps Bailey's bright yellow coat scared the trout away:

                during the summer of 2000. Kelly made the 1903 costume.
And here is an example of what Bailey might have learned at the school:

"So down with every Metric scheme
taught by the foreign school.
We'll worship still our Father's God
and keep our Father's rule."*

*Kelly actually copied the poem from the blackboard of a 1903 ca. schoolhouse in Park City, CO.

Evan, Kelly and the kids avidly watching as the Avs win the Stanley Cup. This was our last visit to Breckenridge  June. 2001. While there we sold our condo:


And here's Bailey ready to go fishing the next day. (We caught a couple of nice rainbows in the Blue River, but it was slow, being early in the season.)
