Today we signed the closing papers. This summer, we’re passing the Tuscarora baton. Andy and Ada (the new owners) are such a seamless match that sometimes it seems as though we’ve been holding Tuscarora for them until they were ready to take it on. As I wandered around the outfitting building last night I realized the photos of all of our people here mark some of the best memories of our lives. It’s time, I know that, yet my heart is full to the brim, and it feels like there isn’t enough room in there.
Here’s a snapshot.–Shelby and Daniel jumping rope with some of our beloved staff members. Don’t all parents have hundreds of these moments? So many times in my life I cling to the same feeling I had right then… “I love them, I love this, I would like it to stay like this forever”.
Aren’t we the lucky ones? We got to be here, we got to DO this.
Well, things change, and that’s good news too. Shelby and Daniel are on staff this summer, and if you look closely you might find Andy and me—behind the scenes, doing our best to make the transition smooth and also step away as they succeed–in the office, in the plumbing. All the while, Andy and Ada have been competent and gracious. You’ll see, why they’re perfect for this.
THANK . YOU. ALL.
We’re so very grateful. Keep in touch—we’ll see you in the woods!!
