Through the good, the bad, and the interesting, the experiences of life as a husband and father are awesome. They have such challenges… twists… surprises. One can take the brute force approach on life, charge right through and get by; or, you can slow down and reflect on the experiences. Do this, and you make life’s journey all the more insightful and enjoyable. Peanut Crumbs is a sharing of escapes from along these journeys, and it is one that I hope you’ll join me on.
Some quick personal shots…
… Three sons and two daughters. (Yup, count ‘em. Five.) They run the gamut from toddler to high school.
… My wife is a wonderful stay at home mom, whose life dream has been to raise kids.
… I love camping, RV trips, and hanging out with the family when I’m not working as an engineer.
… Sports are great, especially college and pro football.
… Our school age kids are all active in Scouting, and my wife and I are both Scout leaders.
… I’m a veteran, having served as an Army helicopter pilot.
… We live on rural acreage in northern California, at a home that my wife and I hope to spend the next 60 years of our lives in. (We promised the kids we’d live to be 100, and we’re sticking to it!)
… Our home is a great place and working around it can be fun, but I don’t think all the projects and yard work can ever possibly get done!
