- my amazing wife for taking on so much in order to let me have this teaching experience.
- my oldest son, Caleb, for stepping up in a tremendous way while I am out of the country
- my 12 year old son for sacrificing in the midst of his baseball season
- my 10 year old son for sacrificially working extra hard on his Cub Scout project while I'm away
- my baby boy
