|More About Our Family
Shelby enjoys sewing, crafting and learning more about photography too! Cole enjoys spending time outside, projects around the house, and learning more about woodworking.
Our relationship and marriage are founded on God's love, grace, and truth. We are thankful to be part of a Christian church that is active in the community and has such a passion for sharing the love of Christ. We teach the preschooler's Sunday school class every other school year, enjoy weekly bible studies with friends and are also a part of a small group that meets on Sunday evenings. Being at church is like being at a 2nd home- our family is so comfortable there.
|We live in the state of...|
Tennessee! We're just 30 minutes from the big city.
Our neighborhood loves community events! Each year holds neighborhood Easter egg hunts, firework show competitions, trick-or-treating for kids and Christmas light displays. We have our choice of great schools and enjoy living near parks, local shopping, and rolling hills.
Our immediate family is young and growing, so creating traditions is special! We enjoy family dinners, spending Labor Day at the lake, picking pumpkins in Ohio, Christmas Eve church service, and spending every other Memorial Day at the beach. On birthdays we hang streamers from the bedroom door and fill the hall with balloons! On Saturdays, the boys do “donut dates” with Cole. This is one of their favorite traditions!
Cole loves to slalom ski (water ski on just one ski) and Shelby teaches English to kids in China via the internet!
