The beginning of a new year marks a GREAT time to review the health of your current financial plan. Taking the time to periodically monitor, and if necessary, alter your plans now will leave you in a better position to build financial security. Give our office a call today to set up your 2019 annual review!

 

Updates on the Team:

Kris and his family had a wonderful holiday season.  They traveled to Chicago to spend Christmas with Emily's family, and had a great time with the boys and their cousins. They spent their last day at the Chicago Botanic Gardens to see the "Wonderland Express" - a must see over the holiday season if you have a little one who loves trains!  Even though they had a fantastic time, Calivin and Dillon were ready to get home to play with their toys.

Dawn's family spent the holiday season like many people do: running around from home to home to celebrate with family and friends. It's always nice to share good times with the people dear to us, but Dawn especially enjoyed the time she got to spend at home with Lizzie, Katie, Paige and Allison. With three of the girls now engaged, the house was FULL of noise, laughter and love while sharing meals, exchanging sweet gifts and the family's favorite part: playing games!

Updates on the Team:

Kris and his family have welcomed the arrival of the autumn season - from enjoying the pretty colors brought to us each year, to visiting a local pumpkin patch for the boys' Halloween pumpkins. Calvin dressed as a magician while Dillon was Mickey Mouse for Halloween this year.

Dawn really enjoyed travelling to Omaha in October or an annual training event. It was a fantastic learning experience that not only helped to improve her knowledge of the industry, but also gave her a chance to meet many others from around the nation who all do the same job. And with Omaha being a hop, skip and jump away from Council Bluffs, Dawn took the opportunity to visit daughter, Paige, at Iowa Western when the conference was over.

Updates on the Office:

Autumn is a busy season as Kris and Dawn travel around North Iowa meeting with various companies whose retirement plans are run through the LFG office. All clients' needs are very important to us though, so if you call during one of the days that we're out, please be sure to leave a message so that we can get back to you as soon as we're able.
 

Updates on the Team:

Kris and Emily saw summer come to a close with Calvin beginning Kindergarten and Dillon starting 3-year old pre-school.  They still managed to have a couple of end of summer adventures though, such as traveling to Chicago for a family wedding, and riding Thomas the Train in Boone, Iowa. (Kris highly recommends visiting Thomas for anyone who has small children/grandchildren!)

Dawn's been adjusting to a much quieter home life with only one baby bird still in the nest: high school sophomore, Allison.  Dawn will soon attend Assistant University in Omaha to sharpen her skills as a Client Service Specialist, so is looking forward to that.

Upcoming Important Dates in August and September 2018:

Updates on the Team:

July was a busy month for the Lamonts, as August will continue to be!  Calvin finished his 2nd season of tee-ball.  Calvin and Dillon both "graduated" from British Soccer Camp (they actually got certificates!). They're in love with mini-golf now: Calvin made a hole-in-one and thinks he deserves a trophy.  Swimming lessons for the rest of the summer and a bit of vacation time. And then school will be right around the corner!

After a whirlwind summer, Dawn's pace is about to slow down and house about to get a whole lot emptier as Katie and Paige head off to college: Katie returning to the University of Iowa in Iowa City as a junior, and Paige beginning her journey as a freshman at Iowa Western in Council Bluffs.  Allison will begin her sophomore year at GHV, starting off with a calendar already jam-packed with volleyball activities.  All three girls were lifeguards at the Garner Aquatic Center this summer, so Dawn's a bit used to not seeing them all as much, but it's still going to be a BIG change!  Dawn's oldest daughter, Lizzie, got engaged this summer and is busy making wedding plans in between photo shoots and furthering her photography training.
