|More About Our Family
|Do you love music?|
Music's a given in our house (and car!). ;) Growing up, Jason played the drums and Cindy played the clarinet and bass clarinet. Nolan has a few instruments and will start music lessons soon. At the holidays, we do karaoke sessions at home with extended family, complete with microphones. It's so much fun!
|What values will you teach?|
The morals we learned from our parents and church have shaped who we are today and the decisions we make. A few of the core values we strive to show and teach are honesty, love, kindness, compassion, and helping others. Another that's deeply important to us is accepting and appreciating differences. Along with what we do every day, we believe traveling and creating opportunities to learn about different cultures is key to this one, and we'll always continue to do both.
|What are meals like at your house?|
We love a just-baked treat. But our day-to-day meals have a lot of whole foods are really fresh. (We go through a lot of fruit!) Cindy does most of the cooking and Jason does the grilling. In the evenings, we sit down for dinner together. If it's nice out, we like to eat on the patio.
|How important is education to you?|
Both of our moms were teachers, Cindy has taught, and there are a lot of educators in our extended family too—elementary through university level. We both value our overall experience, from kindergarten through college. We're committed to giving your child the same, from great schools to being involved parents at class parties and events. From year one, we started saving for Nolan's college and we're ready to do that for your child too.
