This year Dana turned 50 in February! His health is great and getting better each day.
A wonderful goal we accomplished this year: We finished
paying off the mortgage on our house. Now our only payments in this area are the $250 monhtly dues and the yearly taxes. Our monthly bills are lower than ever now so we can easily save for future years, when Dana stops working.
Emmanuel started his 2nd year of highschool at Rancho Alamitos and continues to participate actively in the youth at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church as well in the youth choir there; December marked the end of his Boy Scout years.
He enjoys doing tumbling at Kidnastics on Tuesday afternoons.
Ziedite continues to homeschool, with Mirdza as her guidance mentor at home as she follows the program laid out for her
through CHEP. She also started playing the violin again in January through the OCMA, and added group Voice lessons as well. She is actively involved in one of the kids' choirs at Our Redeemer Lutheran, and is active in the American Heritage Girls Program as
well, which meets Monday evenings. She wil be starting a year of Kidnastics again on Tuesdays this month of January, 2015.
Dana Jr. continues to live in a room away from us and works
as an assistant to his dad. Dylan moves around quite a bit apartmentwise and jobwise, but hopefully will settle down soon in the apartment he is currently living. He is workinng about 30 hours a week a
a restaurant in Irvine.
Dana's HELP Plumbing, Heating and Air business is thriving; God has blessed us immensely by bringing customers to him reguarly without him having to ever advertise. He just does his part, which is to help people
as best he can and give them the best price. He does not work evenings or on weekends, so that's a definite blessing as well.
Mirdza continues to be a stay at home mom and works as a network marketing professional helping people see how
this profession can benefit them immensely now and in the future. She stopped representing Team BeachBody in September and also stopped being a Beyond Organic mission marketer earlier this year. She is focused entirely on telling people how Young Living can
radically improve their lives if they make using their products a regular habit.
