We were both raised in extremely close, loving families, and we heard, “I love you” everyday. Kip’s family lives in Wisconsin, and we go there for a wonderful family Christmas every year. Because we are of different faiths, we get to celebrate all holidays! Suzanne’s sister and mother live nearby, and we see them often. We believe in eating dinner together as a family, so we can always ask, “How was your day?” We want to raise confident children who care about the world around them. Both of us have spent many years volunteering in community organizations, and we will always continue to do so. Additionally, your child will be able to participate in things like summer camp, college of choice, music, art, and family vacations – at the beach and mountains!
