Monumental Moments in Port Angeles

Our last stop along our travels before heading home was Port Angeles, WA. It was a family visit to see Mitch’s son Elijah, daughter Alichia and step-mom Judy.   Eli lives with his mom and it’s a blessing he’s surrounded by so many loved ones, both on his mom and dad’s side.  Judy was kind enough to let us stay in her yard while we were there, which made visiting her much easier as well.

During our visit we got to be a part of Elijah’s monumental steps towards adulthood. After driving around town a bit looking for businesses that may be in the need of a willing and able young man to work, we stopped in to see Eli’s Uncle Damon.  Thankfully we did and with some networking and enquiring Eli had a job interview lined up with Subway the next day.

We got to take him shopping for some good interview clothes, dropped him off for his interview after we prayed together and gave him many tips about eye contact, no cell phones and body language.

He said it seemed like he may have gotten the job, she was going to call him later that day.  After his first ever interview off we went to get the boy car insurance.

Two days later, while hanging out with family he got the call.  He was going to be put on the schedule in a couple weeks.  Yahooo!!!  Elijah the sandwich artist!

Alichia, Mitch’s daughter came from Covington, WA to spend time with us while we were in town. We had such a great time just watching movies, walking the dogs, hanging out and throwing the Frisbee around.

  1. Hey folks, sorry it’s taken me this long to write but i’ve been pretty busy. I’m till with the prison but now work in the mailroom as a truck driver. The officer bit was just not working out and besides, being on-call just didn’t cut it for me. Anyway, it looks like you’re having a ball out there. I look at your pictures and just dream and wish it was me and my family going on the road. Maybe one day. Please be safe and continue to enjoy and be happy. God bless always and take care.
