I am a retired school teacher with 32.5 years service. Married to a teacher who is still teaching.
We have have two children who each have three children. Our daughter and son-in-law are both educators. They have a married son who is in the Air Force and whose wife works at a bank. They have given me my first great-grandchild, a beautiful little girl. Their only daughter is getting married in the fall of this year, 2009, and who is studying to become a nurse practioner. They have one son left in the nest who is a senior in high school and thinks he never wants to leave home. All three children are avid fishermen/woman and hunters.
Our son is a directional driller and his wife is a stay-at-home mom who is really a taxi cab driver to the children. They have one married son who works in directional drilling and his wife is a stay-at-home wife. They haven't started a family yet. His next son is the athlete and plays traveling baseball year round, basketball for his school's team, and this will be his first time to play football. He is also a golfer. His daughter is the youngest and is a dancer, all girl, and has the most expressive face and way of talking. You can tell we all have Cajun blood because if you were to tie any of our hands behind our back, we would become mute. They have a place near here, but have recently moved to Arkansas so our son could accept a promotion with his company.
We have two dogs. Bisquit is elderly and won't be around too much longer and I cannot even imagine that. He is a rat terrier. Pepper is a lab mix and came from the shelter. He is a great watch dog if not sound asleep. He needs to be a hunting dog because he is the most patient stalker of squirrles and birds.
