Welcome to the 2016 holiday update with the Pao’s! An exciting year indeed with moving to Seattle!
Stephen: Now with Igneous Systems in Seattle and off the charts happy. Who knew what a two block commute could do? Remains the only family member to play Pokémon Go!
Marsha: Still adjusting to urban living, but very much a fan. She is perplexed by the weight of groceries when carried via backpack and bags. Suddenly, everything feels like cement. Refuses wheeley technology … preferring to real man it. (and complain afterwards)
Christina: Now a college student at Yale studying Classics and Political Science. Over-subscribes her day by joining too many things to list…
Annalisa: The real MVP!!! Switched high schools to drop Stephen’s commute by 843 miles. She attends Garfield High and continues swimming — qualifying for state! Loves Seattle and urban living! Places Mom and Dad on a 6 year program to move out of the condo for her return to Seattle after college. Hmmmm…
The girls cringe at the mention of “holiday video,” so we opted out this year. Instead, we are enjoying our limited time with Christina!
Take care and keep in touch!
Stephen, Marsha, Christina (18), and Annalisa (16)
