Happy Mother’s Day!

8 May

Happy mother’s day Katy!

First thing, this isn’t Katy, this is her husband, Cameron.  I have secretly hijacked her blog, she has no idea I’m doing this.  I’ll have to type quick before she catches me.  I just wanted to make a quick post about what a great mom and wife she is.

When we decided to go into mission aviation, we both knew that it would be expensive for me to get the training, and that there would be a lot of sacrifices to make.  Katy didn’t see this as a grievous thing, but rather as something worthwhile and fun.  Katy has been willing to make do with less and stay cheerful and happy doing so. 

 I’m very thankful that she is so frugal (as is evidenced by this blog).  With both of us working part time jobs, and with me going to school full time, she could have thrown up her hands and stopped trying, but instead she made the necessary changes to our lives and planned carefully to  make the best use of our limited resources.

 Katy is a great mom to our daughter, Gracia.  She has done a great job of teaching Gracia to obey, use the bathroom, play nice, and all the other important (and difficult) lessons associated with growing up.  Katy’s days are pretty busy but she always finds time to sit down with Gracia and teach her about colors and shapes and letters.  You can tell that Gracia loves her mom very much. 

I am very glad that Katy is my wife.  I couldn’t ask for a better wife and Gracia couldn’t ask for a better mom.

 Thanks Katy!!

    What a great Mother’s Day gift! Katy, it is obvious that you’re a wonderful wife and mother, and an awesome encouragement and support you are to your husband. You’re an inspiration to me!

    It’s actually really funny because I told Cameron this was the best Mother’s day gift I’ve ever gotten and it was 100% free! Kinda goes along with the theme of the blog! =)
