My Children

My babies are in college and rigorously applying themselves to their studies. But in addition, they are having fun and pursuing activities for which they have great passion.

Kaley has a band and they have named themselves "Further Down The Field". They have auditioned and participated in open mic sessions which have earned them a couple of solid gigs. They write and perform their own music with a few famous "cover" songs by other artists. Evidently, the response when they play is extremely positive. In other words, they are good! I have yet to hear or see them perform but I see from the picture that they have charisma. You go, my baby girl!!

Lucas has begun his Senior Honors project. He is working on recording dying Native American languages in an effort to preserve them. Our oldest native speakers are now dying and it is a race against time. Back in the 1930's and 40's, so many Native American children were basically kidnapped from their families and placed in boarding schools. They were required to stop "talking Indian" and to use only English. The policy was devastating to native cultures. But Lucas also has fun with his friends and his hiking.
