Hanna and Claire have great things ahead....

The oth­er day I saw Cyn­thia Burke at the gro­cery store & asked how the girls were doing — it was fun to see her face light up as she told me about their adven­tures & the things they have ahead. I asked if she’d write a bit of that up, and she sent me this to share with you (pho­tos by Mark Gard­ner) — you can see why she & Christo­pher are so proud of them:

Claire is now in her junior year at Ever­green State and cur­rent­ly is in San Fran­cis­co working/studying at a Wal­dorf School.  This is an inde­pen­dent learn­ing con­tract with Ever­green School that Claire put togeth­er enti­tled  “Study­ing the Philo­soph­i­cal Dif­fer­ences between a Wal­dorf School and pub­lic school edu­ca­tion.”  Claire will be home for the sum­mer but intends on cre­at­ing oth­er Inde­pen­dent con­tracts for her senior year at Evergreen.

Han­na is fin­ish­ing her soph­more year at Ore­gon State Uni­ver­si­ty and will be leav­ing for Los Ange­les (Hol­ly­wood) in the fall.  Han­na has decid­ed to study Musi­cal The­atre with her focus on Broad­way.  After an ardu­ous month of audi­tion­ing for col­leges, she has decid­ed to go to the Amer­i­can Music and Dra­ma Acad­e­my in LA. There is also a school in New York and she may spend some time there as well.

Han­na will also be home for the sum­mer – both girls will be work­ing 24/7 I think!!  Cheers — Cynthia

Claire looks to the future...
