At the bottom on the left is an alphabetical list of the pages in this web site, to help you navigate if you feel so inclined.
A guide to our family photo album covering 1994-2010, showing the principal themes, is here.
A year by year guide to our family time-line from 1994 through 2007 is here.
A photo journal beginning in 2008 is here.
The most recent pages of the album, copies of posts from my WordPress family blog, http://ianstock.wordpress.com/, are linked here:
Salut Daphné (born in August 1987, Malestroit in Brittany)
The first thing any woman or girl will have already noticed before opening this page is that Daphné is the only girl among five boys.
This does not phase her one bit.
With her mother's help, she runs the show! That is to say, as much as any individual can run the show in an intense and pushy group like this household.
The photo on the left was taken in France during August 2004 when she and Alban were visiting their dad just west of Paris during their summer vacation. One of her numerous siblings in France is standing behind her. This is her pick for her web page! Some of our complicated history is here.
She moved with her mother and Ian (a weird looking lawyer that some like to call her step-dad) to the US in June of 1997, and is now a fully fledged adolescent FRENCH American (it was her uncalled for comment about her favorite stepfather!). Earlier pictures of Daphné can be found here.
On the right, she was dressed to go out for St. Valentine's Day in 2007 with her beau of the moment. This one is the parents' picks for the photo album.
But we saw much less of her by the end of this album (2007). Beginning at the tender age of 15, she began to have a social life based outside of the home, by which we mean girls first and still, because chatting with her girlfriends takes an inordinate amount of time, but also boys (less time but more stress!).
The small photo on the left, her choice again, was taken by her then boyfriend in the summer of 2003 somewhere in downtown Santa Cruz. The limo, she tells us, was just passing by. The sweat shirt is from her High School.
On the left, another parent pick, this one from a lake in Brittany near both her grandfather's house and where she was born. It was the summer of 2007. She and Alban were visiting Grand-père while their mother, Charlie and Alex were also there on vacation.
And on the right here's one taken at Harbor High around November 2003. This photo again was selected by Daphné for her web page. She graduated from High School in 2005!!
She has her own MySpace page now, its content hidden from the parents and other undesirables. So we can put the photos of her we like here as well as her own choices. On the right is another of our preferences, taken with Delora at the Hanlons on Christmas Eve 2006.
Here's one of Daphné fooling around . . . with a monkey!
Below, in a swimming pool during school, late 1998. Mr. Seffinger, her sixth grade teacher at Happy Valley School, took this one, which is her mother's favorite. Here is another of her in a pool, and a fun one of her on a water ride at an English funfair.
You cannot separate Daphné from Charlie and Alex or from her mother, Marie-Hélène. Or from boys as a teenager, but we're not supposed to say that!! Finally, there's a great shot of her here dressed up for Halloween.
