Jeff and David's bro, Aaron. These must've been taken on the Springfield, MO job!
I just realized that I had never really showcased what my awesome husband does for a living!!
This is our bread and butter. and nowadays, our fuel, clothes for the kids, activity fees for the kids, clothes for the kids, braces for teeth, trips to the doctor for banged up heads, clothes for the kids, new shoes because we just outgrew the pair we got 3 months ago, school books, clothes for the kids..you get the picture.
When we look at it right up close, it's quite amazing how it all works out. That great Bible story comes to mind...the fish and loaves? not that we have excess money, because we surely don't, but the Lord has taken such good care of us and we thank Him for providing a job for David where I can be home with the kids and our needs are met. Just need to give praise and credit where it's due!
David is a vitrification specialist (that's my fancy politically correct term for his occupation). What is vitrification you ask? hmmm, a process (done with grinding floor/hand machines, different diamond grits, water, compounds...) that is done to marble, terrazzo, epoxy, etc floors (the kinds you see in schools, hotels, big places, fancy homes, countertops. etc)...that makes them look like glass. I know it's more than that...but that is the "laymen's" terminology...He loves the procedure, and nowadays, he enjoys selling it also...He is a perfectionist through and through...(hence Stickers' appropriate nickname for him, OCDave) and I would recommend David and his crew to any business, school, church, whatever, that is considering having Santarossa Mosaic & Tile do some vitrification work for them! They ROCK!
David works with a great crew of guys, which consists of our friend, Jeff, my brother, Tom, Jose, and Bucho, who also happen to be brothers, and occasionally some other random folks, like D's brother, Aaron, our friend, Randy, etc.

In reading back over this, after I uploaded all the pix and such, please forgive my incessant babbling. I am so exhausted this evening. Not sure why...one thing is for sure. I miss Mel. (Molly goes a mile a minute) She is so much more of a help to me, than I ever could have thought POSSIBLE!! Come Home, Mel! We can't wait to see her....(Wednesday, 4:30 pm is when she rolls back in!!) I have laundry to finish up, my sheets need to be put back on and all I wanna do is curl up into a ball and fall into a deep slumber.
So I'm outta here...Hope your Tuesday was magnificent and that your Wednesday is looking even better! God Bless YOU! Over & Out!
