Education is important to us. Through Jay's military career and our savings, we are excited to pay for college for our children! And we aren't picky about their career choice... we don't have unrealistic expectations of what our children should be, where they should go, or what their future should look like. Our only expectation is that we help them discover who they are, what they are good at, and support them to live the life they are called to live. When we have a big life decision to make, we share it with the family and then we stop and take time to pray and then come back together to see if we're on the same page. We believe that unity is important. For example, after I gave birth to James, I stayed home with him for 6 years. That decision to stay home and forego a paycheck was one we prayed through and decided to trust the Lord. Although it's not easy to give up a complete salary, we both knew it was right and we don't regret one day of it. A typical day in our household probably looks a lot like the average American family. Erin wakes up early to workout at 5 a.m. and comes home to get dressed and drive she and James to school. Since Jay works from home most days, he is able to help wake James up and get him breakfast/moving/dressed for the day! They attend school from about 7:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. (a little longer than other students since Erin works there) and then we drive home together, grab a snack, and head to Taekwondo or therapy. Afterward we do homework and have dinner together as a family before bedtime.
