My Family!

A little more about me wouldn’t be complete without a little more about my family.

  • Our oldest is 24 and the youngest is 6 (in the pic below, you’ll also see our German exchange student).
  • When we eat dinner together as a family, we often play “Best & Worst” – we each share the best part of our day and the worst part.
  • One of our sons is serving in the United States Marine Corps.
  • Our kids have been involved in everything from football and wrestling to drama, ASB and Honor Society!  Currently, the youngest two are most obsessed with soccer and legos.
  • One of our favorite things to do together as a family is to go camping.
  • My kids KNOW not to talk to mama in the morning until I have my coffee!
