ARIZONA VISIT – Jean Borgeson accompanied Linda Hampton and children Jayden and Sophia to the Concordia University Choir concert held at the Gethsemane Lutheran Church in Tempe, AZ, on Wednesday, March 14. The choir, under the direction of Professor Joshua Chai, is on its annual spring concert tour. Needless to say, Jean enjoyed the evening very much!

Blake and Sierra were attending Sierra’s ball practice. This household is much busier than the last time I visited. The kids are growing faster than I would like. Even they have noticed, as Jayden told me he wished my lap was longer!
