The Very Best Wishes For The New Year
From Jon Schweitzer And The Entire Family
Son-in-law OLIVER is still Dräger's Medical World Wide Manager of Anesthesia in Germany. Daughter JULIE is still working part-time as a senior manager of Global Sales Effectiveness at Dräger in Germany.

Their 5 year old daughter MINA settled into her new bi-lingual private school kindergarten making some real good friends. She is now speaking a perfect Hamburg-German. MINA is turning into a real girl, who loves to sing - just for herself and anybody else around. She continues with ballet, started a field hockey career and plans to start piano next year. Their other daughter, 8 year old ELLA had another fantastic year in the 3rd grade. She enjoyed her ever-increasing social circle and her new classmates at the private International School in Hamburg. ELLA dropped horseback riding and continued jazz dancing, piano and started field hockey as well. ELLA is more the party dancer and shows a lot of interest in cool music. ELLA cannot wait for Mina to change schools and be in kindergarten at the private International School in Hamburg in January.

JULIE is the master of many separate lives: her social calendar remains busy and she seems to know almost anybody in and around Hamburg and the neighborhood. JULIE is working at Dräger's Medical a little bit more than expected managing the Global Sales Effectiveness Team and keeping a lot of balls up in the air at the same time - she travels for her work to the US, Mexico and Brazil which is only possible because of great help from the grandmas and grandpas and our lovely nanny Mary. OLIVER is accumulating more responsibility in his job and never complains about the commuting to and from work. OLIVER did some extensive traveling around the globe and is developing a bit of a social life of his own "with the boys". The whole family celebrated a very white Christmas in Germany, a very hot Easter in Dubai and a just-perfect-summer in California in Encino and at Lair Family Camp for a week. OLIVER and the girls spent Autumn Holidays with Grandma and Grandpa at the Baltic Sea while JULIE went with her friends to Barcelona in October. OLIVER went with the Boys to the Formula 1 race in Budapest, Hungary in July.
