|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
We plan a trip with each side of our family, almost every year, finding new and fun camping and cabin locations for all the cousins to stay and play together. It's a great time to see our siblings and for the grandparents to be able to see all the grand-kids together. It's been a memorable tradition.
We are partners in Tim's parent's organic farm with the intention of preserving it for future generations. We also keep the farm records for yearly inspection, to comply with organic requirements. We spent last winter designing a shed cabin we will build so we can stay on the land over the weekends and other times of the year as the seasons change.
We love doing all the holiday traditions too, especially revolving around the 4 seasons we experience in Wisconsin. We host a big seafood bake for New Years, dye eggs and make lefsa (a Norwegian flour and potato flatbread resembling a tortilla) every Easter, observe Memorial Day by decorating the graves of loved ones, pick home grown strawberries and blueberries in the summer, visit apple orchards for cider and doughnuts in the fall, carve pumpkins and dress up for Halloween, bake and put together gingerbread houses for Christmas and make a special ornament for the tree.
With the future in mind, we are actively saving to support our children's college and higher education endeavors.
We both share a common belief in the promises and teachings of Jesus. The hope we have in Jesus is the foundation of our marriage and the life we try and live out together and as an example to our children. We are humbled that He calls us friend, precious, unconditionally loved, and redeemed. We enjoy reading from children's story bibles and have great discussions about life lessons learned. We encourage Alex that we have a constant companion and helper in Jesus.
|Our Musical Interest|
Tim - Country and Rock n Roll
Stacy - I love all music and have it playing in the background a majority of the day. Alex requests specific kids music which often leads to singing and dancing together!
We look forward to Alex taking lessons on the piano Stacy grew up playing on and that opening up to future musical interests for him. We can't wait to share this with another child.
|About Our Home|
We enjoy the warmth of a real, wood burning fireplace in the winter, on the main level, adjoining the kitchen and living space. A lot of art projects and cards happen at the dining room table. In the summer we are often in the lower level where it's naturally cooler during the hot months, playing games, watching movies or building forts. Behind the house, off the kitchen, we have a patio with dining space, grill, and fire pit where we like to spend time together. Surrounding the patio is all the fun stuff - enclosed trampoline, sandbox, and swing set.
Alex has a great appetite for life and activity! His experience with school has confirmed a kindness he has for those around him. He always invites other kids' to come and play together with him and waves "hi" to anyone we cross paths with, making their day a little brighter, as well as ours. We take advantage of the programs provided by our local library system from musical performances, interactive animal and insect exhibits, arts and crafts, and reading programs. New books are rotated every week and we have as much fun learning and exploring as he does. He always has a new joke to tell or a new dance move to show us. We laugh a lot and never hesitate to say "I Love You"!
|We live in the state of...|
There are multiple families with children in our neighborhood that we enjoy spending time with, and the kids get to play together. Everyone waves as they pass by when we are playing games in the yard or working in the garden. We catch up with each other when our neighbors let their dogs out, or we are on a walk or bike ride. It's not uncommon to get an invitation to a party every year from different neighbors hosting events. It's a great place to raise a family.
