A trip to see Jim

Jim has been working out of town for several months now. It is about a 4 1/2 hour drive to get to him. Right now they are on a huge time crunch with deadlines so he has not been able to come home. We went to go see him. It was very much needed for the boys especially. When he is gone so much I can really start seeing when the boys are needing their dad. It is something I can’t fulfill, it doesn’t take much. Even just the way they tease or get instruction, I can’t do it that matters the way that their  dad can.

I am so grateful for Jim’s work right now, always so grateful, but also grateful when he can be apart of what the boys are doing too. This time the boys got a ‘on the job’ experience with their dad. I was sitting back, maybe a little bored by the whole thing until I saw how the boys lit up hearing about DIRT and machines, and how this was created and that destroyed, they were fascinated.

Big, bad bucket!





This just might have been the Christmas card this year if Layton was there don’t you think?


Then, we also went to the beach to play a bit. The boys were swinging this kelp like a bull whip and we also used them to jump rope with, ha!

Brandee Shafer - It must be so hard to have your Jim so far away. My Jim lost his job at the end of July and hasn’t yet found a new one. Yesterday, he got a “no” on a job that would’ve been two hours away. I was a little relieved; I know I’m not as strong as you are. Thinking of you. Too bad it takes money to put food on the table, let alone make the world go ’round.
