They are now living at Camphill Soltane again, outside of Philadelphia. This intentional community is formed around the care and education of learning disabled young adults.
Soltane has fond memories for us. Chris and Cate served there for three years, Finley was born there, and many of our vacations were spent there.
After finishing up some more education, and some soul searching, Chris and Cate have re-engaged this community and will raise their family at Soltane for the foreseeable future.
So, our big ol' Oxnard house is kind of quiet. Our next chapter here in the Magnolia House looks like lots of remodeling, lots of guests, and lots of trips to Pennsylvania!
Here's an aerial view of Camphill Soltane, and where the kids are right now:
With lots of room to roam, and a community with shared values, the family will do great. We're excited to visit there once again, probably this August after Cate has grandchild number three!
We hear Simon was not quite sure what to do about the cold weather, and that Finley had already been out helping tap maple trees to make maple syrup...
Can't wait to see them all again!
