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.

We should have given Ethan a different name, and that name should have been Stubborn.  Man, this kid kills me.  After a few hours of playing, I informed him that he needed to clean up his room, and that he wasn't allowed out of his room until it was clean.  You can see that he's laying on his bed rather than clean.  In fact, he laid on his bed for 2 hours!  I finally went in and let him know that in 10 minutes I'd be in to clean up, and that what I picked up would be going in the garbage can.  This motivated him and he was able to get his room clean, but we fight about this EVERY SINGLE DAY!!  Yikes.
