Thea Woodfin Reinhart claims that 2005 was her best year ever. Daughter Thea Rae was married in September in Palos Verdes Estates, CA. Her son and his wife had their first baby, a girl, making Thea a grandmother for the fourth time. Thea is still a private-practice forensic psychologist, specializing in child custody cases and expert testimony regarding children. She and husband Frank are enrolled in a beginner Spanish class.
Sara Sprague Monick and Bruce’s daughter Jennifer had a son in August. Bunny’s son Daniel is a photographer in Los Angeles. Bunny herself is still designing art and serving as guide for Living Tours—which began as culinary experiences but have evolved over the last 20 years into small group cultural experiences. Upcoming tours will be to Portugal, Italy, and southern India; let her know if you’d like to join her. Sara continues to study French and represents a French language-immersion homestay program. For the past four years the Monicks have treated themselves to April in Paris as a reward for enduring the winters in Minnesota.

At home Dotty is into tennis and making jewelry while still repairing the damages done to her home by Hurricane Charlie in 2004.
