Hello friends and family,
I’m happy to announce that our family is finally together forever under one roof! While we purchased our home in Georgia back in May, it wasn’t until late October that Ben completed his career in the United States Air Force. He brought the kids and the dog and poof! we are a real family.
Make that a pretty sick family. Our forever home is covvered in numerous medicines, antibiotics, tissues, and God knows what else. Eden was diagnosed with a double ear infection today following three days of high fever. This situation was inevitable when the children started full-time at a new “school”. The twins are in a Christian Pre-K program and Bennett is preschool, but really a daycare. Our little guy is experiencing extreme separation anxiety while the twins are excelling sharing the same class. Eden can write her own name! They enjoy doing crafts, playing outside, and of course, watching Paw Patrol and Mickey Mouse.
Ben has a few promising job leads in aviation however it may take months for everything to get in order transitioning to the civilian/FAA world.
Just in the last few months, we have been writing checks left and right for various, sometimes major, house repairs. Plumbing, drywall, flooring, painting, roofing, you name it. Hopefully, it will be calm for a little while in that department. I’m fortunate to be able to work from home much this fall/winter since becoming an instructor.
We will not be mailing Christmas cards this year, just a handful to immediate family. Thank you for understanding. Ben and I will be celebrating our 10th year anniversary next month. I’m curious to see if I could still fit into my wedding gown!
Merry Christmas to you and yours. We will pray for peace and security this year.
Rebecca, Ben, Everett, Eden & Bennett
