From Sioux Falls we moved back to Ft. Rucker Ala.  Our last baby, Aaron was born there.  Then we moved to Hawaii for five years.  While there I had the opportunity to visit Japan and Korea.  Barry then retired from the Military and we drove cross country to home.  Aaron had moved to Hawaii when he was only two.   So driving across our great country, Aaron learned so much.  He saw the wheat fields and said "Look, the Amber waves of grain."  We took him to the Black Hills of S. D. since he had not been born on our last trip there.  He said "The Purple Mountain Majesty."  Aaron only knew sugar cane fields and pineapple fields.  That trip was really fun.  Arriving "HOME" - another new life would begin for us - this time it would be "Farm Liv'in".

Barry taught Sunday School and coached our sons basetball team to a State Victory.  Our first grandchild was born.  We celebrated my mothers 80th birthday with a "Grand Open House".
