Barb and I made a Road Trip with 11 best friends to Eastern Iowa to surprise and watch another of our common friends play in a Rock and Roll reunion band. Lots of ice cream and bathroom stops. The music and energy of this 60’s band really brought back memories. The next week we went to Barb’s 50th class reunion. Mine had occurred 30 days before. Bunch of older people – than us.
ON THE MOVE
Since our last newsletter it has been moving madness: Son Andy sold, moved and bought a new home, Jim moved states with his family (to Kansas), John sold, lived with Sarah, bought and moved (to KS) this weekend. Oh, Rachel married and is now in their home in Independence, Tony moved in and out, Chris moved out and into an apartment, and Nick and Angie are eyeing a new loft. Barb and I are settled in our townhouse and love maintenance free living. We took over the family condo in Iowa from Barb’s mom’s estate this summer. A gracious and thankful family gesture to Barb for caring for her mom the last 4 years.
Rachel’s wedding was in June and our new son-in-law Zach is a great guy for Rachel. Son Chris announced his engagement (June 15, 2013). Chris’s finance’ Tempest has been like another family member and comes from a strong multi-generational family in central KS via Platte City.
Team Snyder grew by one grandchild – Julia – number 17. She is acting totally bored next to me as I write this (and sleepy) – beautiful!
On top these events, our Real Estate year has been very busy and rewarding. We love serving both the new generation of homeowners and our many friends and associates as you participate in the American Dream.
It is clear to me that more newsletters with less history are in order.
If you remember our grandson Michael who had the cancer challenge over a yr. ago – God has blessed him. He signed a Division I letter of intent to play soccer for Creighton when he graduates next year.
Thanks for your prayers and support.
