We are settling into our new house and getting things organized the way we want them.

We are continuing with Tai Chi classes at Golden Sun – Rex taught the class until our instructor, Gene, came in January.In December, Rex was asked to teach a Tai Chi class in Meridian Manor.So we go to our class at Golden Sun at 7 am and then to the class at Meridian Manor at 8 on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Nancy is enjoying retirement again – water aerobics, tai chi, bocce ball, hiking and learning pickle ball.She enjoys the monthly women’s lunch and meeting more of our neighbors.
We enjoyed attending the Arizona Lecture Series again this year and hearing talks about Arizo…
