Big Changes

Announcing a first in the Fischer house...

After years of working in an office building, sharpening his talents, and carving out a career and name for himself...

Kyle recently took a new job that not only has tremendous potential for career growth but also will allow him to work from home.

We are very proud of him!! (notice his press release below)

Life looks a little different around here now. We've been painting, reorganizing, and preparing the way for this new adventure.

There are not many people we would willingly give our school room up for but we kind of like having the big guy around.

What used to look like this...

Now looks like this...fully equipped with the essential candy bowl that was the highlight of when the boys came to visit daddy's office! Collin made sure to get it stocked for him.

After trying to shove our school supplies into a closet with no success...

We were FORCED :-) to go on an IKEA spree and came up with this solution. It works out perfect except for the aching back Kyle had after hours of assembling (thanks, K!). What do you think?

We are all working from home now... in different avenues but as a unit.
What an exciting season of life!
