K and D,
What amazing pictures...Adam and I keep opening them at school and getting all emotional. All of my students have seen Quinn T, he is now on my office door. What a personality, he looks like a good listener, which of course resembles the two of you. His eyes are SO expressive, there is definitely an artist in there.

love you you both! we miss you, but we're so glad to be a part of this even from Louisiana.

A & A

We got this today from one of our dear friends and now share with you two:

PARENT - Job Description

Mom, Mommy, Mama, Ma

Dad, Daddy, Dada, Pa, Pop

Long term, team players needed, for challenging permanent work in an, often chaotic environment.

Candidates must possess excellent communication and organizational skills and be willing to work
variable hours, which will include evenings and weekends and frequent 24 hour shifts on call.

Some overnight travel required, including trips to primitive camping sites on rainy weekends and endless sports tournaments in far away cities! Travel expenses not reimbursed. Extensive courier duties also required.

The rest of your life. Must be willing to be hated, at least temporarily, until someone needs $5. Must be willing to bite tongue repeatedly. Also, must possess the physical stamina of a pack mule and be able to go from zero to 60 mph in three seconds flat in case, this time, the screams from the backyard are not someone just crying wolf.

Must be willing to face stimulating technical challenges, such as small
gadget repair, mysteriously sluggish toilets and stuck zippers.

Must screen phone calls, maintain calendars and coordinate production of multiple homework projects.

Must have ability to plan and organize social gatherings for clients of all ages and mental outlooks.

Must be willing to be indispensable one minute, an embarrassment the next.

Must handle assembly and product safety testing of a half million cheap, plastic toys, and battery operated devices.

Must always hope for the best but be prepared for the worst.

Must assume final, complete accountability for the quality of the end product.

Responsibilities also include floor maintenance and janitorial work
throughout the facility.


Your job is to remain in the same position for years, without complaining, constantly retraining and updating your skills, so that those in your charge can ultimately surpass you.

None required unfortunately.

On-the-job training offered on a continually exhausting basis.

Get this! You pay them! Offering frequent raises and bonuses. A balloon payment is due when they turn 18 because of the assumption that college will help them become financially independent. When you die, you give them whatever is left. The oddest thing about this reverse salary scheme is that
you actually enjoy it and wish you could only do more.

While no health or dental insurance, no pension, no tuition reimbursement, no paid holidays and no stock options are offered; this job supplies limitless opportunities for personal growth and free hugs and kisses for
life if you play your cards right.

Q is adorable....and you two look pretty cute with him too..!..
One of my favorite things in life is to see a family together...treasure the moments
and don't blink.
Love, Aunt Marcie

When I first say the pictures, I had tears in my eyes. This whole process still amazes me! We are so happy for the three of you. I can't wait for Q to meet Kara (she is getting big and her hair is starting to lay down!). Enjoy your time over there.

Love Paul, Sara, and Kara
