Randy and I are from Seattle, where Randy recently retired after a career working for the City of Seattle followed by a number of contracts in IT, most recently with Boeing. Carol works part-time as a coordinator of a private English as a Second Language (ESL) program. We have two sons: Kevin is in a graduate program at University of Washington, and Krister is about to graduate from college, and he is accepted to both Harvard and Stanford Law Schools. This weekend he visited Harvard, and in April he will visit Stanford. He invited us to join him as he checks out Stanford.
