Kristofer and I started our family in North Idaho, near the Canadian border. When the kids were both in school we moved to Holden Village, a Lutheran retreat center, and stayed there for 10 years. There the kids went to a public “remote but necessary” 2-room school, through most of elementary and high school years. When our eldest was ready for college we all moved to Bellingham WA. Now Kaia is in Brooklyn NY, Johanna in Olympia WA, and Kristofer and I are still in Bellingham.
