Who We Are
Family time is a top priority for us. We also value being good neighbors, spending time with friends, and giving back to our community. Some of the things we do together include dinner in the evening at our kitchen table, going for walks around the neighborhood, playing at the playground, reading books, and playing chase or hide and go seek around the house. As a family we like to travel, try new things and visit our extended family. Everyday things we have prioritized doing together are Maxwell's bedtime, a family trip once a year and designated family time on the weekends.
Our family motto is faith, love, adventure.
Our family mission statement is: Our family values each other and is committed to our faith in God. We worship the Lord and share Jesus through serving our church, our community and the nations. We strive to love, forgive and engage with people different than us. We seek truth, justice and education to attain health of mind, body, and spirit. We hope to find adventure, explore and have fun in all that we do.
One of our family values is to make adventures part of our regular rhythm. We got a state parks pass this year for Christmas from family, and we are excited to use it regularly and spend time out in nature, exploring trails, forests, lakes and other natural beauty. We recently planned out our first camping trip for Valentine’s weekend and stayed for two nights in a tent. Maxwell was so excited to go camping, in part because one of his favorite bedtime books right now is about a Little Critter who goes camping. The book describes the main character, Little Critter going on a camping trip and all that happens. Maxwell did so great on the trip, sleeping well in the tent each night, jumped around on the big rocks by the river and climbed multiple peaks and trials all by himself! We had so much fun and can’t wait to get our next camping trip on the calendar.
