At the end of the sailing season, we spent nearly three weeks visiting family in the US. Gretchen's mother, Lois, celebrated her 80th birthday in Bath, NY. We were really happy to be able to join her for this milestone.
Our daughter, Esther, then celebrated her graduation from the Law School at the University of Virginia. This is an exceptionally challenging program, and we are inordinately proud of her accomplishment. She will be working for the Citizenship and Immigration Services in Washington, DC. She will be providing legal advice on refugee resettlement. We were honored to be present at her graduation ceremony.
Finally, a return to home in Switzerland. After a 25+ hour journey, we arrived tired but very happy to be home.
