|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
We love to spend time being active, walking our dog, riding bikes, or swimming. We also love to watch movies or have game nights as a family. We like to cook or bake together. We also take Pilates classes as a couple and as a family. We spend a lot of time participating in the kid’s events such as church functions, swim team and Scouts. We are happiest when we are all together. We also volunteer together in the community, at church, and on missions in Nicaragua and Camp of the Hills. We volunteer heavily in swimming, scouts, and soccer. We all participate fully in church, including teaching Bible classes, youth mentor, and life groups. As a family, we love books, music, museums, and science.
We are faithful Christians. We have devoted our lives to God and attempt to follow Christ’s example. In conjunction with our belief, our family participates fully in our church. Our kids are active in the youth group. We are mentors to the teens, teach Bible classes to the toddlers, and are members of Bible study groups. Through Christ’s teachings, we are called to help those in need through participation in missionary ministries both in Texas and in Nicaragua.
|About Our Home|
We live in our hometown, where we both grew up, in the suburbs near our family. We have a warm 4-bedroom home with a pool in a family-friendly neighborhood with good schools and a park nearby.
Sophie (age 12) is excited about being a big sister. She loves tap dancing, swimming and camping.
Davis (age 18) is in college nearby studying engineering. He works as a swim coach to preschool-age children.
|We live in the state of...|
We love living in Texas because of the kindness and hospitality of the friendly people. We love this particular area because there are so many opportunities for good education and great relationships. Education is very important to us and ultimately that is the reason we chose to live in this area. The area and schools are culturally diverse and our kids have close friends of different nationalities. The schools offer many opportunities for expanded education in languages, art, music, science, medicine, and sports. It allows kids to have a broad range of choices for participation and expanded learning. We live near a large city that provides exposure to art, museums, theater, and the best medical facilities.
