Happy New Year
Is it too late in the year already to say that? Oh well, Happy New Year. A lot has happened since my last blog, including the holiday season. As many of you know, I have a 3 year old son (Sawyer) and a 2 year old daughter (Charlotte), so the Christmas holidays were a blast at my house. Santa made his annual appearance at the Hawkins’ residence with a bag full of toys, despite the amount of times we weaponized Santa against the kids to behave throughout December!
While we enjoyed the holiday season, it can be a loooong break. As a kid, my dad was a catfish farmer. Sort of like my profession, I have the ability to work my own schedule, but am never really “off the clock”. When the kids were around the house too long, my dad would always leave to go “run birds”, as he would say. Essentially, he would shoot birds from the ponds trying to eat the fish. While it was a necessary part of the job at times, now that I am a dad and have young kids, I am quickly realizing he was just getting away from us for breaks. In hindsight, I can’t blame him. I love my wife and kids more than anything, but I was glad to get back in the swing of things with work and a schedule. Many of you can relate, I know!
