Dani, 18, loves music! She sings and plays piano, flute, viola, and first violin in the family string quartet. She is also a Scripture memorizer extraordinaire! Of nine years in The National Bible Bee, she has qualified for Nationals eight times. She also enjoyed the opportunity to write the scripts for our local Bible Bee’s dinner theater and Celebration Days play in 2015, 2016, and 2017.
Dani is our resident photojournalist, and is planning to study music, theatre, and natural medicine, with the hope of one day studying and practicing midwifery, and recently discovered that she actually enjoys chemistry.
Rachel, 15, loves animals – in particular, horses! She loves flying and has asked to learn this next summer. She copilots for Dad already.
Our resident funny bone, Rachel is the one who sees things from the odd side and keeps us laughing. She plays second violin in the quartet.
Christa, 12, is often found raiding the library of wherever we find ourselves. She plays viola for the quartet. She also loves animals, especially cats and dogs. Christa loves climbing- anything! Trees, horses, rocks… A good buddy to Jared, she enjoys being out catching bugs and critters.
Jared, 10, is all boy. He likes to shoot the BB gun, and playing he’s a soldier. He plays the cello. Jared likes to read- especially by headlamp at night when he’s supposed to be asleep. He was born at home in North Pole and likes to say that he is, therefore, an Eskimo.
Timothy, 2, talks All. The. Time. It is amazing to hear what he is thinking about and putting together. This kiddo is now running all over the place. Timothy likes dancing, music, playing in the snow, and sledding with his siblings. He loves the cello. 🙂
