Letters to Scout
This is my venue to write letters to my beautiful surprise addition, my lovely daughter Scout. Due to the fact that she was unplanned, I was having a difficult time during the pregnancy. I was advised to write letters to her before she was born to help bond with her. These are the letters I started back then and continue now. She's here with us now and we couldn't ever imagine life without her.

We try to raise Scout as free-spirited as possible.


My name is Rae. I'm a nurse with an extreme case of wanderlust. I'm married to the man of my dreams, Alex. We currently live in a beautiful two flat in the most diverse neighborhood in Chicago. We live with our best friend Kyle, who is also Scout's godfather. We spend our time seeking out adventures, learning new hobbies, and wrangling our two year old on the city subway.

Scout,

A few weeks back we headed to Baltimore, MD. We didn’t know much about the city- but we decided to take a day trip and check it out. The drive (which should be less than hour) took longer due to the crazy D.C. traffic.

We drove back Camden Yards, which was cool to see in person. We checked out the Inner Harbor- the touristy part of downtown Baltimore. We ate some small lunch at Bubba Gump then bought water taxi tickets. The Harbor was beautiful and you really enjoyed the boat ride. We took it over to Fells Point, which was an awesome neighborhood of Baltimore. The downside to all this was that I got really sick (we believe it was food poisoning) and we had to head back on our taxi earlier than we wanted to. When we got back we walked around a bit more before heading to two-dollar night at the Baltimore Children’s museum. It was fun getting to watch you interact with other little kids. We don’t get to do that as often as we’d like. Post children’s museum- we got some pie at “Dangerously Delicious,” (a famous pie place) and headed back to DC. A cool part of traveling is stopping into towns you wouldn’t usually go to- so when people you meet in your life bring it up, you can say, “yeah, hey, I’ve been there.” I think the Charm City rose above my expectations and treated us well.

Scout, Here are some lovely memories of our first two weeks in DC/Alexandria. Exploring, seeing old friends, and making new. Learning to love a new city while also learning its quirks. You have been such a trooper through our majorly changing life. I hope you grow up into a vagabond as well-  adapting easily- and still waving at everyone on the subway. Don’t ever live vicariously scout, life is too short. Just find whatever life you want.

Scout, 
We got our next travel nursing assignment. Two weeks from yesterday we will be moving to Washington DC! We will be living in the North Virginia suburbs- but right off the metro (their public transit). I’m pretty excited. I took a telemetry job at Inova fairfax hospital that will last until November 10th. Our friends Sara,Leo, Lea, and Jason will be there too- Inova needed  a lot of travel nurses. The main reason I’m excited is that I have never been to DC, Baltimore, Philly, NYC, or Boston. I have traveled plenty south and west but never really east. I am stoked to know that we are one megabus trip away from some of the best big cities. We are also a short ways away from countless state parks and historical sites. Now that you can WALK- I think this is going to be a perfect time to take you on tons of adventures throughout the east coast!!! 
Cheers to wanderlust! 
Love, 
Mom. 
P.S.- If any readers have cool suggestions for things to do in this area- message me! Thanks :)

Atlanta Trip

Scout, 

Two weekends ago- we took a long weekend and went to Atlanta. We got a Citypass- and visited some of the best parts of the city. Your dad is from Atlanta- but it was super fun to go there and do a mix of the touristy stuff- plus some local things too. 

Georgia Aquarium: 

Our first and favorite place- this aquarium was amazing. Some of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. And you- ?- You loved every second of it. You rubbed your hands across the glass and thought you were making the fish swim. You laughed and smiled so big. Dad’s cousin Samantha and her boyfriend TJ joined us- we had a lot of fun. One thing I’d like to remember is that during a cute 4D movie, water splashed the audience. It scared you so much- that you peed (ALOT)- I felt your diaper get all warm, then I realized it was all over my leggings too. But it was way too funny for me to get mad! My favorite part of all was seeing the whale shark in the large tank at the end- it was unbelievably breathtaking. 

After the aquarium, aunt Donna watched you overnight. Sam, TJ, Kristin, Dad, and I headed out for a night on the town. We went to Holy Taco, Porter’s, Twain’s, - and some other bar. The night was over at 4:30 AM. Dad ran into a childhood friend, Sam Kristin and I fought toilet paper rolls and hung out in photo booths. It was certainly a night to remember- (if only we could)…. haha. 

The next day it took Dad and I almost all day to recover. We met you, Uncle Bob, Aunt Stacy, Aunt Donna, and Pop Pop at a restaurant to celebrate Pop Pop’s birthday. 

CNN Center

We took a little tour around the CNN center- pretty cool to see where all the news comes from- but more cool to take a ride up the longest escalator in the world! 

Coca-Coca Museum 

This place was super fun! It was really interesting to see the history of our favorite pop. (sorry- I’m a yankee and I will forever call it POP!) Best part? - The taste tests at the end! 

Martin Luther King Jr. Center

Okay- so this place was not on the City Pass - but it has been one of my dreams to go to this place. I was amazed to learn about some of my heroes- Martin Luther King Jr and Gandhi especially. I have been badgering your dad to take me here for almost four years- finally we got there :)  It reminded me that I’m so glad that you were born into a world where schools aren’t segregated and people aren’t as hateful. Some are- but you can choose to not let them be your company- always remember the fights that have been made for justice. 

Fernbank Museum of Natural History

A cool history museum in Atlanta - you really enjoyed this! 

Atlanta Zoo

It was as hot as heck outside- so the zoo was our last and quickest stop- but it was fun nonetheless. The best part was the carousel. 

We ended our trip in Atlanta by seeing our friend Emily and visiting an awesome antique store. 

All together this was an amazing trip and I’m so happy we got to go on all these little adventures together! I love you Scouty.

Scout, 

I decided that wherever we live in our lives (which will likely be a lot of places through our jobs), i will video-tape the apartment. It will help us remember the good times we had there. I especially love when you see your friend in the hallway- and at the end when you’re making cute noises on the bed. I know this will be a good home for us for the next few months.

Our Trip Down to Florida!

Scout, 

Time to catch you up on what’s been going on the past week! First post- our little trip down to Florida!!!

Thursday Feb 16th: My last day at work…. so incredibly bittersweet. Below: Me and my favorite patient: A.G Also, my co-workers had a fantastic lunch for me. I”m really going to miss that place. Good old 10W! 

Friday Feb 17th: Woke up early, we had our U’haul packed up and headed south. 

We stopped outside of Indianapolis to see your aunt Jaci and her boyfriend Jon for a late lunch. 

We weren’t sure whether we wanted to drive through to Atlanta that night- but we decided against it- we ended up staying in my friend Janie’s house in Nashville. She actually wasn’t there- but we still enjoyed her room! 

Saturday Feb 18th: Ended up in Atlanta to see Dad’s family. Didn’t take enough pictures- but it was really great. We want out for mexican with Maw-Maw then went to Aunt Donna and Uncle Mark’s house. After that we got so spend some quality time with great-grandma Retter and Pop Pop. You and Dexter were extra cuddly in the car. 

Sunday Feb 19th: Woke up early and drove to Southern Florida. Crossing the border of Florida was an amazing feeling: it was 80 degrees!!! 

We stopped in Sarasota Florida and stopped at the Old Salty Dog Cafe- like just like Man V. Food episode! We ate the original Salty dog and some Mahi Mahi Tacos with mango. It was absolutely delicious! 

That night we stayed in a small inn about 7 miles from our apartment complex. (We couldn’t get in until Monday….) SCOUT YOU WERE SOO READY FOR THE BEACH!

Travel Nursing Begins!

Scout,

 We are on our way to a completely new life.

It’s a bit weird, leaving behind everything you know. It’s like saying goodbye to a city that has always been such a good friend to you. A city that never did anything wrong- except maybe have over-crowded tollways and weather that was always on its menstrual cycle. (But neither of those were its fault!)

Chicago is written all over my heart in such a deep way, I have a feeling that no matter where I end up going in life; I’ll never find a city that I love in the way that I love Chicago- a way that is genuine and DEEP. I don’t know where you will grow up or if you will even remember that you were born off of Michigan avenue and spent your newborn days on the stoop of a bar on the lower-west side.- but one day- I promise- I will take you to Chicago when you are older- and we will marvel at it, in the way it was meant to be marveled at, like while riding the ferris wheel at the world’s fair. 

 Despite saying goodbye to my city, my amazing friends at work, and my chicago-land family-I feel ready to go, and terribly ansy. I usually enjoy car rides but I dread that any second something is going to happen to ruin our chances at this adventure. I feel like any moment the hospital is going to call me and tell me that a rogue hurricane destroyed the town and they don’t need me. I’m afraid that somehow this adventure is going to slip through my fingers when I’m not even paying attention. It’s silly I know- but for once I feel like everything is actually working out very well- and even though I love my life, nothing ever got where to where it was in my life by first “working out well.” Usually messes are what brought my circumstances together.

I’m also a little bit afraid of the unknown in my new job. I fortunately adapt very well to new situations. However, that still doesn’t ease my mind when it comes to a brand new job with only two days of training involved. My travel nursing job is going to be working in the Emergency Dept in an “express admission” unit. To prove just how unprepared I may actually be, take this: I don’t even really understand what that unit is supposed to do. It sounded interesting, so I basically jumped onboard. The mystery of a new place, new experiences, new job, new human beings to meet- all these things thrill me beyond belief. 

 I wonder what it is in me that thrives off of the unknown. While others live for routine; routine makes me feel sick to my stomach and aching for drastic change. I wonder what I really want out of all this experience. Do I want to do it so I have a really colorful photo album to show you when you grow up? Is it so I can be an interesting person? Is it because settling down scares me to pieces?

 We have finally arrived in Naples, and we are staying at a little motel a few miles away from our apartment. The key will be ready for pickup in the morning. You were mainly joyous over a portable DVD player in the car playing Baby Einstein. I’ve been playing movie trivia with dad in-between stupid arguments and lots of voice impersonations. 

That reminds me Scout- before you marry someone, I’m going to make it mandatory that you take a long road-trip together. Dad and I have done so many of these- all of which have proved to us that even though we will argue and perhaps want to strangle each other at some points- we still desperately love each other. You learn a lot about a person for 22 hours in the car. Our honeymoon road trip clocked up +150 hours in the car. I’m lucky he stuck with me after that! 

We crossed the state line today and I was overwhelmed with joy. I’m still nervous about a lot of things, but the 80 degree weather and the swaying palm trees was enough to rid me of my little anxiety and help me really embrace the beginning of this experience. 

My life has gone SO differently than what I imagined 5 years ago. I never thought I’d be married now, and CERTAINLY not having a child. I figured I’d be a nurse, but I didn’t know much about what kind I would be. Even though at the time I may not have wanted a family so early- I think if my 18 year old self knew her future would be this- she wouldn’t be able to wait for it. She’d be so excited and full of joy. She’d be proud because she would know that her sense of adventure was still intact and running high. Her distaste for settling was still there and she has her own family full of unconditional love. 

I’m really proud of what I’ve become so far- I’m not perfect- but I’m glad I’m where I’m at in this moment. I’m ecstatic that I have you, a little 8 month old baby wrapped up in her favorite blanket, spooning with my hip. 

This has been a jumbled letter, but I had so much to say. What could sum it up is that we have left Chicago- and even though it is hard- I couldn’t be any more excited or proud to be where I’m at in life right now. 

Let the adventures begin!

Scout,

As difficult as it is to get ready to say goodbye to everyone in Chicago; I’m excited because I was getting really ansy here. I really want to be brave. I want to live a story-worthy-life. No one would want to hear about me going to work day in and day out, making more money to buy more things- and watching law and order SVU re-runs. That’s not a good story. As Donald Miller would say: “If we saw a movie about a guy, and the whole plot was how he was trying to get a new Volvo, we wouldn’t care or be touched when he drove the car off the lot at the end. We would think it was an awful movie.” Yet, how many of us live our lives basing our plot-lines on things that might not really matter after all? I so badly want to stop focusing on myself and want to live a life that makes an impact somehow. I want to move to change myself, and God-willing change others. I want to learn where the homeless in Florida sleep. I want to cry with strangers and hold hands with the lonely. I want to treat everyday like it’s an adventure- and live large- without focusing on my income. I want to play guitar at open mic night and learn to love a lot better. So why are we moving into the great unknown? For me- it’s because when I sit around a bonfire 40 years from now- I want a lot of good stories to tell. “You only live once- but if you do it right- once is enough.”

Scout,
Here’s a amazingly true and awesome statement.
We are now officially travelers!!!!!!!!! I got my first travel nursing assignment and in less than two weeks we will be living in beautiful NAPLES, Florida. 
I accepted a 14 week position in the express admit unit in the E.R. I cannot wait to leave by the beach and get away from this nasty cold weather in Chicago. (Although, I will dreadfully miss Chicago)!
I cannot wait for you to be a roadtripping baby with a million memories of interstates and roadside attractions before you even say your first word. Pictures will be evidence. 
When I married your dad, we were ready for adventure. We then had you. (Not the exact adventure we were expecting- but still awesome!)… And now… a real adventure! As a family. You+Me+dad+ Doggy Dexter are about to start our vagabond life. I can’t wait.

Scout, 

On my days off, I really put a lot of effort into doing something to help you have a good day to remember. In a way, I think of it as, is today worth taking pictures of? Or did we just sit around all day and not find an adventure? I always want to be looking for an adventure with you. Luckily, for a baby, adventures can be small. We found cosley zoo last week. An itty bitty little zoo in the middle of the suburbs. I actually used to go there all the time as a kid. Your dad and I went there as part of a date a few years ago, before babies, before marriage. Our adventure had you loving the pigs and chickens most of all. You didn’t care so much about the cows or llamas. Our adventure took us all over the suburbs, trying to find a place for mom to get her nose (re)pierced. No dice- too expensive! Our adventure took us to cheeseburger in Paradise- where Jimmy Buffett serenaded us, so we could at least pretend we were on a beach somewhere. 

The good news is that soon our REAL adventures may start. Our travel nursing career should really be starting up soon. Today I put in several applications all over Florida. Almost all of them are 13 week assignments. I put them into: Sarasota, St. Petersburg, Boynton Beach, Miami, West Palm Beach, Delray Beach, and several others that I truly can’t remember. So, we are praying that one of these places calls us soon. As soon as I accept a job with one of these places, we will pack up our storage unit, and move down South for 13 weeks. After those 13 weeks are up we will try a new place for awhile. Then another. and hopefully another. I’m really praying that travel nursing works out great for us. Your dad is in school now (online) and you are very portable. We love to travel and see new things. What better way than this? So I’m hoping that you are enjoying these little baby adventures, cause hopefully the big leagues are right around the corner!

Scout, 

This weekend was nice because we got to spend some sweet quality time together.  I did have to call in sick to work today (I was sure my virus was coming back). And I felt off all day; but hey, that’s life I guess. I feel like maternity leave made my immune system go down the drain. I feel like I go home with whatever my patient’s had that day. It’s an awful feeling.

In other stories, my travel nursing job looks like it is falling into place. I finished up the last pieces of it and I’m thinking they are going to email me this week saying my license is a go. Once that happens we can get ready to find a travel job that fits us. Your dad are hoping to find one near an organic farm. We stumbled across this amazing organization in which you live on organic farms in exchange for a free place to stay.  

Now, this travel nursing job would provide us with free housing, but if you find your own place, they give you an additional stipend, which would be even more money to save up. So, fingers are crossed here. Florida never really seemed like my style, I’m more a pacific northwest mountain type, but the colder it gets in Chicago, the more Florida sounds pretty great. Especially because nearly every job location either ends in the word “beach” or starts with the word “port.” - and I love oceans. 

The other day your dad and I laid on the floor together for nearly an hour and half just talking about all sorts of stuff. funny things, serious things, and dreams. We talk ALL THE TIME, but there was something sweet about lying on the floor, holding hands, and talking about wanting to go back to Honduras and be foster parents. Or, run some clinics. Your dad is amazing to talk to. We both have big dreams and I appreciate that they line up most of the time. Speaking of that, your dad got accepted to an online bachelor’s degree program. It’s for behavior science; and I think he will love it. I’m praying we can somehow afford the payments or get the right amount of financial aid. He would be so good at being a social worker, or counselor, or whatever he decides. 

What else you ask? I dyed my hair dark brownish red the other day. I love dark hair in the winter. Add one of my favorite hats and voila!

Hmm..yesterday we went to the craft fair in Chicago. It was a bit too crowded but still lots of inspiration.

We left with only one purchased item in our bag (umm, chicago flag onesie for xmas!), but we headed straight to JoAnn fabrics because we decided we were going to learn how to sew. We bought the materials and sewed together on the floor. The velvet underground was playing softly in the background. I made you a little plush owl and dad made a little pink plush mustache. 



I dressed you today and I think you looked beautiful. Beyond baby cute. But really, beautiful. I’m so not girly; but I get more satisfaction dressing you up than I ever thought I would. 

I’m feeling a bit better, enough to go back to work, but I feel like i’m never going to be 100%. I miss you when I’m at work. Your little warm body next to mine. I never ever wanted to be a stay at home mom; but now I realize why people do it. Moments are fleeting; and you change so quickly. I can’t believe how much I miss.

I know we’ll always be close; but sometimes even skin-to-skin isn’t close enough to someone you love this much.

Scout, 

Sometimes while documenting all the special moments of everyday life, I forget to explain the big-picture. And as I lie all alone on the sofa, sick as a dog, I have the time to expand on some things. 

When you were two months old your dad and I went to Tegucigalpa, Honduras to meet up with WGO to see if I we would want to work there full time. I explained in a few different past blogs, here, here, & here

We had an amazing experience. I worked as a nurse there and your dad helped build concrete floors. We also played with a lot of kids, de-liced children, and met some amazing foster kids. It was an experience unlike any other, one that was so incredibly touching. 

Below: Tegucigalpa (so beautiful isn’t it?) 

Hanging out with this little girl after I de-liced her and did her hair. 

The beautiful children. 

Alex washing some hair. 

Lines to get into the clinic. 

Your dad and I got home and knew we had to pray a lot about this decision. We would be moving from Chicago to Honduras, with a little baby, to be missionaries. We didn’t even speak Spanish that well. It was a lot to think about. 

Meanwhile we got back to the states and moved into my family’s house in Naperville, IL. About 30 miles west of chicago. They were amazing to us, but we were very use to having our own space, it was very different. Maternity leave ended and I started work on labor day. Going back to work was just like riding  a bike. the only hard thing was breastfeeding and leaving Scout. 

Just a few short weeks after staying with my family, my mom had a friend from work who was leaving with her husband and daughter to move to North Dakota for a short-term job assignment for a couple months. I mentioned that we would house-sit for them and they happily agreed. This gave us, once again, free rent, but our own space, our own house, etc. We “moved” into there mid-September, which is in Warrenville, IL, the town right next to my parents. So we have been living here, in someone else’s house, in a small town, in a surburbia land that we do not like at all. We crave Chicago during all moments and have a difficult time adjusting to the suburbs. Moving back seemed impossible at the time while we were still trying to get our finances in order and Chicago is a VERY EXPENSIVE TOWN. 

We spent much of our time thinking/praying about our next step. Honduras? Back to Chicago? Something else? 

We have a mutual restlessness that never seems to settle. While we watched our friends buy houses and pick a spot, we became all the more ready to pack up and travel. So we have decided a few things and here they are in a disorganized manner: 

a. Daddy NEEDS to finish his social work degree. We decided we would be much more useful doing mission work once he had that. Plus, that is his passion. 

b. I would also like to go back to school and become a Nurse practitioner, hopefully within the year or so. I worked next to a nurse practitioner in Honduras at the clinic, and I envied her competence. 

(both of these degrees can be attained online). 

c. We would like to learn Spanish. We just finished our first class :) 

d. We would appreciate saving some money and funds before doing anything out of the country. 

So after a bit, we realized there were somethings we needed to get done before we pack up and head out of country. It may be a few years, but that’s okay, we’re young :) 

We decided to apply for a travel nursing job  so we could see different parts of the USA, save up some big bucks, and get some new experiences. All the while, making great connections. I got accepted to the agency shortly after applying. In this agency, your gas and housing is paid for. I will also be getting paid a lot more than I do now. You pick a region that you want to go to and the agency helps pick a short term job assignment for you. (about 13-16 weeks). After looking around, and failing at finding a spot close to your Mimi and Geo, we finally decided on Florida. There are A LOT of jobs in Florida in the winter. I finished applying for my license transfer yesterday, so we have several weeks to wait and see how that goes. But because I’m with this travel agency, I’m told I should have no problem getting a job assignment in January. So it looks like we’ll be packing up this winter and heading south- to make new experiences and cure our restlessness. And then by the time our restlessness picks up again, it will be time for a new travel assignment, hopefully after that we’ll pick Pacific Northwest (we LOVE it up there!) 

So Baby Scout, looks like if everything goes as planned you will be a world traveler! Home is wherever we’re together .Geography heals the adventurers in us that have been held back for awhile now. We are ready for a new chapter, something exciting. 

I want to take you couch surfing, meet strange people, go hostel jumping, visit organic farms, go long-term camping. I may be a mom, but I don’t have to settle down. I hope this teaches you love for others, tolerance, and a zest for life. 

I once read somewhere that people tend to live vicariously through others, often. I don’t want to be like that. This is my life, I want to live. 

This is where Donald Miller, my favorite author, has a quote that comes in and fits perfectly to end this blog entry: 

"No, life cannot be understood flat on a page. It has to be lived; a person has to get out of his head, has to fall in love, has to memorize poems, has to jump off bridges into rivers, has to stand in an empty desert and whisper sonnets under his breath… We get one story, you and I, and one story alone. God has established the elements, the setting and the climax and resolution. It would be a crime not to venture out, wouldn’t it?" 

We had this quote on our wedding bulletins, time to live it out. 

We’re gonna have fun Scout.

Scout, 

So here’s our big news: I recently got accepted to a travel nurse agency. We will start this job around thanksgiving/Christmas time if everything goes as planned. We will be moving around the U.S. to different cities for 13 weeks at a time. Alex will finish his social work degree online and we will be exploring different areas and meeting lots of new people. We hope to save up some money, get some good experience, and then God-willing move to Honduras in a few years. :)

I will expand further on this later, once we decide where our first assignment will be.
