Where do we start? We are a Navy family, constantly on the move finding the wind in our sails. Ray is the web designer, woodworker, scientist and sailor. B is the writer, bus driver, cook, tutor, housekeeper, substitute teacher and well lots of other things too.

We have big girls in band, cross country and all things high school, a very bossy nine year old into soccer and swimming, a quietly loud eight year old boy who has a love for all things lego and two funny, loving puppies.

There’s lots to do and so much fun. We count our many, many blessings daily.

Stay tuned… things might get interesting with our misadventures in parenting!


On October 1, 2011 we brought Jack home. Little did we know how blessed we would be by that tiny little boy.

Our hopes and prayers changed to prayers of thanks for the many blessing Jack brings and prayers that other orphans will find their families.

James 1:27 says “Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.”

We are all in and know that we can do all things through He who strengthens us.
