|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
Our special interests include going to museums, art galleries, and visits to the lake. We enjoy playing with our two cats, spending time with our families, and having regular game nights with Brittany's sister and our friends. We love to read, play board games, paint, work on DIY projects, and watch movies together.
We both come from families that practice a diverse array of Christian denominations including Baptist, Lutheran, Catholic, Methodist, and Presbyterian beliefs. Brittany's great-uncle is also a Presbyterian Minister. We identify as non-denominational Christians, however, if you have a strong desire for your child to be raised in a specific denomination we are happy to learn and support their relationship with God through that denomination.
|About Our Home and Neighborhood|
We live in a large 2 bedroom apartment in a family-friendly neighborhood. Our complex has a heated pool that is open most of the year and a large area with a jungle gym for playing and running in the grass. Our community is quiet, safe, and beautiful surrounded by open fields and old oak trees. The complex consists of mostly families and the children all play together outside. Our neighbors are kind and friendly, always looking out for each other.
Our neighborhood is a mix of apartments and houses dotted with parks and walking trails. We have a thriving farmer's market down the street in the Summer and Fall, and carriage rides during the Winter. Two of our favorite spots are a tea shop and an independent book store, that we can't wait to share with your child.
|Our Family and Friends|
We are blessed to have friends and family both far and wide. We are both lucky to have large extended families (Paul has 13 aunts and uncles) that we enjoy spending time with. One of our favorite family traditions is dressing up on Christmas morning in matching pajamas with Brittany's sister and our brother in law. Each year we pick a new theme to the amusement of her parents. We are constantly amazed by our adventurous friends who we stay connected with despite their many travels. We love meeting up with them when they come to town and catching up over dinner to hear about their adventures.
