The third quarter of the year was very full for The Johnson Team – we enjoyed helping a wide variety of clients, as well as taking advantage of the beautiful summer with which Whatcom County was blessed! It was fun to meet many of you for the first time, and always a pleasure to help long time clients make changes in their housing or investments as their lives move along.
Rich & Lylene had guests from Wisconsin for a bit, so some clean-up/fix-up activity went on at their house for a while. Lylene is thinking they should have guests more often! Showing them around is a great opportunity to do things we don’t always do as locals. They took the whale watching cruise to Friday Harbor – the guests loved it, and Rich & Lylene learned things about our local waters which they hadn’t known after years of boating. A drive to Mt Baker really impressed the guests…and reminded the hosts that most people don’t have glaciers in their backyards. We truly live in a wonderful place!
Graham’s training paid off in the 330km race through the Alps: he finished 194th out of the 740 who started – and was still in good shape at the finish. Rich & Lylene were there to cheer him on and went on to visit Chandler & Sophia for the first time since they moved to Oslo over a year ago. Mike and Fawn manned the fort while they were gone, so business was able to proceed as usual.
Mike, Kim & Lauren have enjoyed the wonderful summer weather. Work has been busy but the boat did get used a little with a few trips to the San Juans and even 1 trip up to Poet’s Cove on Pender Island BC. With the Fall setting in Lauren is looking to a new sport-she has signed up for Basketball at the Boys & Girls Club in Ferndale. She will be in the 5th/6th grader group. This should be exciting for her. Kim’s been pulling the flower pots and cleaning the beds to get them ready for winter and Mike’s getting the boat ready for the 3 months rest in the shop. Its good to let the boat dry out a little.
Fawn and her family have had a wonderful summer. Business was busy at Office Help Center thanks to many of your referrals, but there was still time for some fun away from the office as well. Fawn and her family spent a few days over at Sun Lakes in Eastern Washington taking in the sunshine and boating. McKenna learned to tube behind the boat while there and had a blast. . While summer was fun they are enjoying the slower pace of Fall and McKenna being back to preschool at Irene Reither.
