All kids went to a Rodeo

In the summer of 1984, we drove to Dean and Maria's place in California. Since I had to fly to Taiwan to get my Father ready to come to the US to live with us, Janice and our kids stayed with their family. Unfortunately, Dean had just had a car accident and his knee was injured, and Maria was traveling for her job. So Janice was "in charge" of all five kids! During the visit, Jonathan had been acting like a typical four year old! When Janice decided to take everyone to see a rodeo, she told him that he had to behave there and he promised that he would! They went to visit Ginger and Bill Francis who went with them to see the show. It was a very long program! Several times Jonathan asked "is it over yet?" but he never complained and sat with the others quietly. When it was finally over he announced "I did my best Aunt Janice" and he certainly did! We always remember that occasion and frequently quote him, saying "I did my best Aunt Janice" whenever it seems appropriate. All in all, it was a very successful visit in California. We even got to see Deanna play in a basketball game. Unfortunately we have no pictures of that!
