This summer is shaping up to be one of extremely busy proportions! In addition to all the traditional stuff, (weddings, festivals, reunions, etc.) Josh has found an amazing opportunity for himself and (possibly me too). Chicago Sailing which is a sailing school here on Lake Michigan is looking for crew and instructors to teach wannabes how to get their sea (lake) legs. Josh called the man who is in charge of filling the positions and the man practically jumped through the phone and gave him a job right then! So, in addition to all the aforementioned hubbub and his already bursting schedule, Josh is going to take on a position with the company. He will be paid as well as compensated with the opportunity to take some boats out off the clock (read: us getting boned up on some of the finer points, such as man overboard drills, etc.). Hopefully I will be able to get on as crew for one of the larger vessels to practice the taking of orders :) Hooray for such an opportunity falling into our laps!
