Daddy on the Scene

After 2.5 years of being on call 24/7 to what I think of as the computer mistresses, the Captain is officially done with his job that so effectively helped us make the transition to Texas. While we are very grateful for the role the company played in our personal story, and have made friends among that work family that will continue to be part of our lives, we are also glad to have him mentally, emotionally and physically back with us at home.

In fact, he will be home 100% of the time now, because his new commute will involve rolling out of bed, pouring himself some coffee, and climbing the stairs to his home office. I am actually hoping we can count a new coffeemaker as a business expense: what do you think?

As it turns out, he has about 10 days of a break here before starting his next job. Not surprisingly, he hardly knows what to do with himself. Fortunately, the kids have ideas. We are all having fun watching him unwind.


  1. Praise God for this new job! Congratulations to all of you! I'm sure all five of you will really appreciate this new way of life! So happy for yall!

    p.s. sorry i haven't called you back....going to talk to you tomorrow at MOPS!!

  2. Look at the looks on all four of your family members in this picture- beginning with Justin. Notice the head tipped, lips out, concentrated focus...F-A-M-I-L-Y GENES! New coffee pot is not an option....it's a necessity!!!


Thanks for stopping by! I love hearing from you.
