About Us

Andy and I met on a blind date in Dec. 2005. One of my 7th grade students was his neice, and she set us up. Go figure. We saw each other every day after that! We were engaged by June and married in September of 2006. In January, 2008, we welcomed little Ethan into our home, and in August, 2010, little Addison arrived.

Andy is a diesel mechanic at Kennecott. I taught middle school science for ten years, and am now an evidence-based learning specialist for a school district.

First Words, and boy Genius!

I was really disappointed to know that Ethan's first word was dog! He LOVES Norma, but she really can't stand him. He chases her around the house, and she gets up and moves every time he gets close, until she's too tired, then she just growls at him a little bit. Anyway, I wasn't sure if he was really saying dog, or something just like it, but this morning I got him out of bed and Norma walked into the room and he pointed at her and said dog! Now, as a mom, I was hoping his first word would be Mom, but I was pretty certain it would be Dad. What a disappointment to know that it was neither mom or dad, but dog! Oh well.

I guess I shouldn't brag, and who knows, maybe I don't even have rights to brag, but I think Ethan is pretty darn smart! For instance, he loves the night light. He pulls and pulls on it until it comes out of the wall, and when it finally does, he is diligent in trying to plug it back in, like he knows it won't light up until it's back in the wall. Today he was playing with an empty bottle of juice, and the cap came off, and once again, he was intenly trying to put the cap back on. His little hands don't work quite yet, but he sure knows where things are suppose to go, and what they are suppose to do! Anyway, I think these things make him quite smart, but who knows, maybe I'm just crazy, and all kids do these things!
