    Pictures say it all. As many of you know, my family and I moved here 10 months ago due to health issues with our youngest child, Calvin. I have received numerous well wishes, thoughts and prayers from members of the board, for which we are all grateful.

    While he still struggles with many seizures daily, he is doing better than before, and has good days along with the not-so-good ones. Yesterday was a good one, and we went fishing.

    Anyway, thought I'd share for those who may be interested. Thanks again for a great site and to those who manage it, love this state as well!

    Thanks again all.

    Children are a treasure to be cherished. Wonderful to see that you got to take him out. Share as much as you can, because they grow so fast.

    What a wonderful day with your son! You're the kind of dad that will live in his heart forever, and if that isn't immortality, I don't know what is.

    Tell your son that we’re all proud that he finds joy in catching fish and happy his health has improved since moving to Washington. I wish you both the very best and success on many more fishing trips to come!
