My family just received some rather big news. My husband just got his dream job with the Baltimore Ravens as the Director of Football Analytics. He is beyond excited, as are we for him, too. It has been a long time coming and a very twisty road to get there. He quit his job 6 years ago to pursue this dream. For three years, I worked hard to support the family while he went for it. After three years, I asked him to find a regular paying job again. The stress of providing financially for the family had gotten overwhelming for me. I know he was disappointed, but he didn't give up. He kept working at nights and squeezing in sports work when he could. Three months ago, I took a big gulp and told him to give it another go. Three months later, we find ourselves facing packing up the house, leaving the only home the kids have known and moving across the country to the east coast. No matter. I can't express how thrilled I am for Sandy to achieved his life long goal. What an amazing thing for the kids and me to witness. It is an exciting new chapter for us all. This will open up new opportunities for me as well, which have me rather giddy. In the meantime, we are going to take this Father's Day to celebrate our successes and bask in the sunlight of this happy day.
Thanks for being a great Dad, Sandy!
Love from Charlie.
And, from Baillie (your sports fanatic)
And, from Allie, your little love!
Happy Father's Day from us all! and congratulations for achieving your dream. May we all strive to taste a bit of that sweet treat. xo anne
