    Default Summer Sabbatical

    We took 6 weeks off work this summer to spend with the kids on the water so I thought I would share some pics. Our 9 year old is on the wakeskate, our 8 year old is on the wakeboard and slalom ski, and just yesterday we taught our 4 year old to wakeboard. Notice the roo on his new board. He loves it! Now that the kids are so active behind the boat, I find that I would rather pull them then actually go myself. Never thought I would see that day. I hope everyone is having a great summer on the water...

    That is awesome. My son is starting to see the light of the joy of wakeboarding. We are leaving the kneeboard at home on the next trip..

    Thanks guys, we are having a ball and are very blessed to be able to take the time to enjoy the Moomba as a family.

    Ian, I work in the computer software industry. Our company has an awesome benefit where every 4 years you get to take a 6 week paid sabbatical to go recharge your batteries. It's pretty cool!

    Reese - Time with your wife and kids is time well spent. You are indeed fortunate to be in a line of business that offers this sabatical benefit. If I had it, I would do exactly the same thing. My boys now are 23, 21, and 15 and I love to be with them. Always have. Family is a gift. And, yes, we are having a great summer on the water. - Deerfield

    Hmmm. Maybe 5 weeks with the kids and then a week off from that.
