YIKES!

So today Chad and I were driving and he said...
"Maybe i should be a college track coach and farm on the side, or maybe teach high school History, be the weight lifting coach for the football team, and farm on the side."
Those of you who know me well would think...oh no...I bet Rachel unleashed her fury on him. But NO! I've come to a place (not quite sure how long this peaceful feeling will last) where I don't really care what he wants to be...we've been through (hypothetically that is) Law, Professional Bobsledder, Teaching, Medicine, Dentist, Physical therapy,...you name it...he's thought about being it! So all I said was..."well, whatever you want to do babe"...ya I didn't think i had that kind of support in me! ...is there some kind of wife award for this? Maybe someday we'll be out of school and into a profession...someday...

I remember those days. They never really stopped, until Daniel passed, but then he was off to bigger and better things- Missionary Work. Love you guys. BTW- You can send Bridger over anytime, we always have a messing floor.

as much as I always hated being a farmer's daiughter, I miss it. I miss watching my dad come home all dirty and me growing up changing handlines and such. Now I iron shirts and slacks and my hubby wears a tie every day. ;) Best wishes to you and the hubby in deciding.

You're a good woman!

Joel and Kristie said...

I TOTALLLLYYY know what that's like. Let's see Joel went through getting his computer degree to working at Walmart dist. to maybe being in the FBI, Air Force, High School Teacher, D.O., Pharmasist, now he's a Chiropractor, but now he's thinking about going to Med school or joining the National guard or rehab centers, or or or... It takes a strong wife to hang in there, you're doing an AmaZing job!!! Keep up the good supportive work!!

Rachel, I can totally picture Chad saying that. I hope he decides on a profession soon. Your family is darling. I hope you guys are doing well. Our next little boys comes in December. I don't know if I'm ready but he is coming.Ang

I get a kick out of Chad... and yes, very noble of you. That was the right thing to do. I was reading Triathlete magazine the other day and this one chic won $200,000 from ONE race! So there's an idea... and you could coach him!:)
Anyway... you HAVE to come over so I can get you into digital scrapbooking! It is SO amazing. Call me.

Layne and Natalie said...

So I just found your blog - how cute is your little boy!! I haven't seen you guys forever, just tell Chad to be a professional farmer!

Hi Rach! So good to hear from you and see your blog! My little one was born in Dec and will be 2 this year. Crazy that we have kids huh? Your little guy is a doll! Your family looks good and its nice to see what you are up to. Keep in touch!

Dave & Jada said...

Your awesome. Just stick with him. He will eventually figure it out. Everyone has their own challenges in life and if this has to be one of them, so be it. I would like to see you as a farmer's wifie. Hehehehe!

Ricki said...

Supportive wife of the year, for sure! You are great to support your husbands dreams! And you guys are still young! Let him dream while you can still see plenty of time for a future!

barbara beck said...

Rach you will be so happy what ever comes your way, its in your nature you are a survivor!,

elise said...

My vote is still professional bobsledder. Let's be realistic-- there aren't that many cool songs about a Jamaican farmer/teacher. I think it makes the choice obvious. :) You guys are the best!
