|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
We love playing board games and host fairly regular game nights at our home with friends and family. We love imaginative play with our son and enjoy being silly as a family. Hide and go seek is the best! Dan enjoys home improvement projects, and helping make our house a home. Karin loves to bake, and enjoys learning new skills and making cinnamon rolls every Christmas morning. We also love to travel and are excited to share the world with your child!
We are Bible-believing Christians. We've both spent several years overseas as missionaries, sharing the joy and Truth about Jesus and the gospel.
|Our Musical Interest|
Karin played the clarinet for 10 years from Middle School through most of college. We both have participated in church choirs during Christmas time. Karin's family is VERY musically inclined, with her father being a music minister at most every church they attended and her siblings playing a trumpet and flute respectively.
Our musical tastes range from pop to contemporary Christian, from classical to coffee house. We also know the words to most any Disney song.
|About Our Home|
We live in a 4 bedroom home at the top of a cul de sac. The baby's room is across from our son's room, and has the best view of the mountains from our home. We have a guest room that's mostly used as a playroom at the moment, and full of games and toys. Our backyard has grass, a covered area with climbing vines and two fruit trees (peach and plum). We have hopes to put in a sand box and a few garden boxes on the side of the house for all our family to spend quality time in the outdoors. In the summer, we sit in awe of the sunsets from our back porch, and thank God for the gift of the home he's provided for us.
We have a five year old son named Gideon. He was born 3 months early as a micro-preemie, but as energetic and fun-loving as he is, you'd never be able to tell. He loves to play outside with hot wheels monster trucks and dinosaurs, and is a fan of Spider-Man and Iron Man. He is extremely outgoing and always enjoys meeting new friends as well as playing with his current ones. He enjoys "helping" his dad with home improvement projects around the house, but is still working on putting his clothes and toys away where they should go. He often asks for a brother or sister that he can talk to and play with.
|We live in the state of...|
New Mexico! It's a state full of diversity, kind hearts, and the most beautiful sunsets in the world. We live at the base of a gorgeous mountain range, of which the state has many. There are several universities in the state, and they offer a wonderful scholarship program for all residents who graduate from a high school in New Mexico. It's a state of diversity, thanks to the many reservations, military bases, and people of many cultures and races who came to the land of enchantment because of the culture of open hearts. We love this state, and think it is a beautiful and supportive place to live and raise a family.
Our neighbors are all kind, helpful, and generous. It's a very quiet neighborhood, with residents ranging from young families to retired individuals. Kids play touch football and tag in front of our yard, and most everyone puts up Christmas lights for the holidays. It's a wonderful place to live!
