  2. Dear Vanderwalls, Jack and I just love seeing your photos, Mom and Dad included, and we grin from ear to ear when we read your stats and your endearing nick names. You all have graced this year with such love and joy for those of us who have been lucky enough to know you. If at all possible, we will see if we can swing by on our way back to AZ. Now with Julie, James and Kensington in Houston, you are not exactly on our way, but we’ll see. We would dearly love to see you all. Speaking of the Blystones, they have been up here in MI for a month (James only got 2 weeks) and we have loved it. Of course, we adore our Kensington and of course, she is very bright and beautiful. Oh, if only we were all closer. Our international choir and dance festival in July was fortunately one more successful event. It is a lot of detailed work, but there is nothing quite like hearing them all sing together at the Gala performance. I have heard Let There Be Peace On Earth sung many, many times by choirs from around the world together with our host choir here in the states and I weep every time thinking that perhaps our festival brings better understanding amongst these youths from various cultures. Do look at our website, to see some of the photos. Do take good care of one another and God bless everyone, Sara and Jack Kukuk Date: Mon, 18 Aug 2014 13:19:24 +0000 To:
