The Captain, obliging to Mama’s requests for “nice pictures” on Mother’s Day

This guy is just about the hardest-working person I’ve ever known.  He is a serious do-it-yourselfer in our house, on our boat, and just about everywhere else.  Our boys are so lucky to have a daddy who makes the time to take them on amazing adventures and teach them about the natural world around them.  The Captain has a background in experiential education, having run a field station in Mexico, rowing and sailing voyages in the Chesapeake, and study abroad programs worldwide.  Now, he’s a full-time tugboat captain.  His work sometimes has him away for extended periods, so we’re all learning the value of quality over quantity when it comes to family time.
