Meeting the Family

(Dad & Mom)

Dad (Kelly) is the pastor of a family integrated church. He is the leader of our family, the man who keeps us all laughing, and greatly loved by all who know him!

Mom (Shelly) is our loving, stay-at-home mother. She is our teacher, nurse, best friend. She selflessly gives of herself day in and day out and we love her for it!

Jordan is the oldest at 20. She is graduated and enjoys sewing, singing, swimming, cooking, reading, singing, playing the hammered dulcimer and piano, (did I mention singing) and loves children! She currently babysits our 3 year old, twin cousins who you'll see in many of the pictures.

Kelsey, 18, is also graduated. She enjoys riding horses, spending time with animals, playing jokes, playing the piano and learning the violin, sewing, baking, swimming & writing. She is preparing the be a missionary to Mexico.

Savannah is 15 and is in 10th grade. Savannah also likes
animals (especially the kittens) and riding horses, as well
as reading, drawing, sewing, drying flowers, swimming and
taking pictures.


Ethan, 10, (almost 11!) is all boy and energy! His favorite things are Legos, guns, pocket knives, throwing knives, watching Errol Flynn movies, swimming, football, soccer, baseball, & playing jokes. He plans on being and doing so many things when he gets older, that I just can't write about them all!

Noah is the youngest at 9. He loves doing puzzles,
playing with animals, reading, digging for buried
treasure, digging holes in general, swimming all
summer, laughing, getting his picture taken, and
playing with his big brother. He wants to be a
fireman when he grows up!


Just a little about us:

Our grandparents live right down the road from us, and we don't know what we would do without them. We live on a 10 acre farm where we own horses, goats, chickens, dogs, cats, and one fish. We milk our goats and make goat milk cheese, lotions, and soaps. We grow a garden every year, and make our own bread. We have our own milk, eggs, cheese, bread, veggies, and some fruits. Mom and us girls like to wear skirts, and all of us kids have been homeschooled since Jordan was in first grade, & we absolutely love to be with each other! (Jordan, Gram & Pop)
