|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
Jeff has a passion for sports and working with youth. For the past 8 years, Jeff has volunteered with various youth sports organizations. Jeff really enjoys teaching and encouraging kids - as well as watching their development. Jeff also enjoys exercising and has participated in many fundraising 5K's supporting our schools and food pantry.
Britney is passionate about helping the disadvantaged. Specifically, Britney has supported a variety of food insecurity programs, including our local pantry, emergency food kit builds and women's shelter. Britney also participates in fundraising as well as preparing and serving meals.
Volunteering and community involvement are important to both of us. We like to get the whole family involved whenever we can. Along with being socially conscious, we are also environmentally aware and try to implement these values in our parenting.
Both of us were raised in Christian households and attended church regularly. Jeff's mother is a Methodist pastor and brings her faith to holidays and family gatherings. Jeff's mother even married us! We attend a Methodist church that provide many volunteer opportunities and participates in many service projects.
In addition to our own faith, we've also enjoyed spending time with friends and neighbors of other faith traditions. Just recently, we experienced a our first Passover dinner with one of Asher's classmates. Our faith is based on Christian values, but we appreciate and respect other religions.
|Our Family & Friends|
We are very close to our extended family. Although much of our family resides in the Midwest, Jeff's brother and parents recently relocated to the Atlanta area to be near us. We enjoy family dinners, camp fires and pickup games of every sport. Since relocating to Georgia, we've had many family and friends from the Midwest come to stay with us as well. We also enjoy visiting Jeff's grandfather in Orlando and checking out the Disney theme parks.
In addition, we have a wonderful network of family friends throughout the Atlanta area. We enjoy getting together at festivals, parks and swimming at the pool. Our friends have children of all ages and races.
|About Our Home|
We live in a 4 bedroom traditional home. Our spacious living room is often filled with family and friends playing board games or cheering on our favorite teams. On chilly days, we enjoy the fireplace in our living room. We share our home with our 2 dogs and Britney dreams of having backyard chickens someday. We have a very large backyard that is often the site of soccer, football and lacrosse games. We enjoy tending to our large garden and the boys love to snack on fresh blueberries. Our basement is play space for big and little kids alike - we have air hockey, foosball, a drum set and our personal library.
Our oldest son, Odin, is 11 years old. Odin loves to play all sports, but basketball and football are his favorite. Odin is very sweet and responsible. Odin likes to study science and is a great student.
Our youngest son, Asher, is 8 years old. Asher is constantly making us laugh and absolutely loves animals. Asher's 2nd grade teacher says that he is a great role model and an exceptional reader. Asher is very excited to become a big brother.
Both of our boys attend a top-rated school where they are fortunate to have friends from all over the world. Odin's best friend is from Africa and Asher's best friend is from India.
|We live in the state of...|
Although both of us were raised in the Midwest, we call Georgia home today. We enjoy the museums, music and fun that Atlanta offers. Plus, the beach is only 5 hours away. Living in Georgia allows us to maximize the amount of time we can spend outdoors. Jeff loves to play and coach sports. Britney enjoys gardening and hosting backyard barbeques.
We live in a beautiful neighborhood with lots of flowering trees and bushes. Our neighborhood is full of children and we enjoy getting together frequently. We have a pool and tennis courts in our neighborhood - and we can be found there often! We have neighborhood parties monthly and the bus stop is the epicenter of the neighborhood during the school year.
