My husband

I have to say I have the best husband in the world. Okay, at least I think so. You can have your own opinion.

Rob lost his job in April. Therefore, he's been home with the boys this summer. He isn't looking too awfully hard to find a job until school goes back in the fall, actually our boys will go back August 24. Okay, he has done so much with the boys, I can't believe it. He camps out in the backyard, goes fishing, and just does fun boy stuff with them. They are having the time of their lives. This has been a great time of bonding for Rob and the boys. He even came home yesterday, after a long day of fishing, and said, "If I accomplish nothing else this summer, I am getting to know my boys much better." Also, he is so thankful for this time, you see, in the past he pastored a church and worked a full time secular job (because he didn't derive income from the church) and for his job he was on call all the time. There was not alot of fun time for us as a family. Rob was always preocuppied with his studies or his job. See why this job loss is such a blessing. We most definately feel it is the smiling providence of God for the time.

This week I am working 3rd shift to cover for someone that is on vacation. I worked Sunday night, and then Monday Rob took to boys to a state park and fished with them all day, I literally mean all day. I was able to sleep from 6:40-5:30. WOW!!!! It was great. Then I worked Monday night and he did the same yesterday, I didn't sleep near as long, but I sure got my sleep in. I worked again last night, 3 more nights to go.

Well, I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate my dear husband. He does so much for our family. He is not content for us to just maintian, but he strives to make us a better family each and every day. I couldn't imagine life without him. My boys and I are so blessed to have him.

It is so important for our boys to be with their dad. I am glad for your family to get to do this!
