By May the weather was nice enough to join the Dalldorfs in burning their old Christmas tree from 2014. Few things feel as nice as the green grass after a cold winter.
We did a long nine month course at church and it was a huge privilege to have Jacques there too. Here he is talking to the group.
With the improved weather, the barefoot hiking group started the monthly hikes again!
Towards the end of the school year I had to take the high school band to a parade – only the second time I had to tow a trailer with a school bus. All good.
I accompanied Wilhelm to Kansas City, where we had a booth at the fantasy art convention, Spectrum. I had a lot of fun talking to people and demonstrating how leatherwork is done.
Wilhelm finally became a US citizen. He was too old to become a citizen with me or Gina and had to do the deed on his own.
I found myself more and more taking photos of Chippie – it was very clear that his time was limited on this earth.
