Boy Scouts Kidnap Dr. Moreau


If you tried to contact our office over the last week, you probably figured out that we were closed. A group of adventure-seeking Boy Scouts, namely Troop 111, kidnapped Dr. Moreau and held him hostage at an undisclosed location in the North Georgia wilderness.
Ok, ok...it wasn't quite that dramatic. They didn't actually kidnap him; he went voluntarily. And the undisclosed location, was Woodruff Scout Reservation in Blairsville, GA. Truth be known, this is the second year Dr. Moreau has served as a leader for his two sons' Boy Scout troop and accompanied them for this week of wilderness camping...and wild horses couldn't keep him away!
There was a time when we thought it impossible that we would ever be able to close the office and leave town for more than a long weekend. Being self employed, when he's not working, the office is shut down...as is the income. Several years ago, as our kids all started getting older, we realized that this is the time of our lives. We have very limited time in this life to spend with our kids, impress our values upon them, create memories with them and show them what being a family is all about. This is, in fact, what life is all about. While we are both passionate about dentistry and the particular brand of dentistry we've nurtured for 27 years, our family is priority one.
So you'll forgive us if we were inaccessible for a week (though text messaging in the N. Ga. woods actually worked pretty well for handling a few emergencies back home while the boys were at work on merit badges :-). What a joy it is to watch our boys grow, learn new skills, become fine young men (as my paw-paw would say)...like their dad.
