We are both from the Richmond area. We met during college at BYU in Utah. In 1996, Charles was in a motorcycle accident causing brain trauma. He had to learn to read and write again. He returned to college and completed his associate degree. After college in Utah, Rebecca moved back to VA and we were married in 1998. We have three great children-Chandler age 14, Sydney age 12, and Canon age 10. We have lived here in Mechanicsville for 10 years. This is our forever home. Charles lost his job in residential design/construction when the housing market crashed in 2008. Rebecca returned to the workforce and Charles has done may odd and part time jobs to keep our family here. We have struggled but have been successful keeping our home through it all. We have financially slowly bounced back, but any work on the home has been put on the back burner and for the children's interests and activities such as soccer, baseball, dance, and art lessons-they are our focus and more important when a dime has to be divided between new cleats or a throw pillow. We are a happy loving family and spend our free time at kids' events and watching movies.
The crew of Fix it and Finish It was amazing. They are all welcome back any time!!! They were courteous and respectful and so fun! We had a quick kinship and joking time that made the day all that more memorable. We had lunch in our garage and played darts in the down time. I am so glad it is all caught on tape.
