The Travelers

Hello, we are in Seattle right now. Yesterday we had an appointment to get passports, and they actually were issued that same day! That was amazing! So, our plan is to leave for Mexico on Tuesday night, arriving in Guadalajara Wednesday morning. Meadow and Logan got passports too. Logan's is so cute! It's just funny to see that little round face inside a passport! It's cold and snowy here, just like at home. We spent the day walking around downtown Seattle while we waited for the passports. It was a beautiful sunny day, and the kids enjoyed riding in their stroller. Today Matthew is looking at a step van he might buy for his new construction business. He's an official contractor now! His business is called Fine Line Custom Carpentry. He's still part time at Alaska Airlines, so we can keep our benefits, then 3 days a week he does building projects. He wants to specialize in custom cabinetry and trimwork. He's very creative and artistic with wood.

I suspect Matthew will have more work than he can fit into a 7-day week, much less a 3-day week! Perhaps his first official Fine Line building project will happen down in San Marcos ... or did it already happen in Kent? Give our love to W&K and the children.

Congratulations on the new business! That sounds exciting, and right in "line" with what Matthew is good at (ha ha - I have English blood in me, the punnish humor comes out on odd occasions). Hope you have fun in Mexico! Enjoy the sun!! And your time with William and Katie and the kids, of course. :)
