Our Family (as of 2014)

This used to be our "About The Children" page, but we have outgrown that title. With children growing up and leaving our home, survey questions like "what is your favorite color" seemed less appropriate for the older ones. Also, our family is no longer limited to the eight of us since it is growing both by marriage and grandchildren. We have therefore changed this page to be a brief annual summary of what each member of our family is doing. Surveys are still available for children under 18.
