We Took A Break, Back Soon, & A Gift

For many reasons we let our foster care licence expire. We needed to focus on our kids. We pulled our oldest two out of school and started homeschooling, we decided my wife should stop working full time and come back home, etc. What does any of this mean to you? It means that no this podcast is not dead yet even though it seems that it has podfaded. There will be new episodes in 2014. We will be doing foster care again. New adventures will be had! I almost recorded another farewell episode to close this bad boy out for good but I'm glad I didn't. That said, yeah... I'm sorry it's been so long since there has been an update let alone a new podcast episode around here. Come next year there will be new episodes. Thanks everyone and I hope you have a terrific holiday season. Since I have nothing for you hear but a promise of things to come, I give you a heart warming Christmas tale that I wrote and recorded back in 2010. It's called "All I Want for Christmas is a V.R. Supercube." Enjoy.

 A Gift to you dear listener:

In this post and this sentence below you will find links to legally free fantastic copies of the novel in both eBook and audiobook formats. Enjoy! Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas!

I'm Alive, New Episode Soon

So, this podcast has pretty much dropped off the face of the Earth. In short, we've been busy. The reason? My wife started working full time. Once I got home from work, she'd head out. She now is going to get to work from home some days and I've cut back to part time so it won't be as crazy - but right now she's training people and is working a ton. My youngest son has also been sick pretty much all winter and finally just had surgery to get his adenoids out which should help him. It's been a long few months. The biggest reason, however, is that I landed a gig narrating an audio book and it has kept every scrap of my free time filled. It's wrapping it up though and I hope to get it finished this week.

That said it's been a long time since I recorded the last episode and I have a lot to share about our journey with our current foster guy. I hope to drop the episode sometime next week after I finish the audio book I'm producing. Hope all has been well with you!
