Todd is a software developer and self-proclaimed computer geek. In addition to his “official” job, he is also the CTO of battleplanner.com, a side job which pays out at the astounding rate of $0.25 per hour. In his spare time, he enjoys playing on his computer, playing on his X-box 360, or playing on Daniel’s Wii. His wife thinks that he should expand his horizons and get some new, non-computer related hobbies. She is also quite certain that he will force her to edit this page, should he ever choose to read it.
Jennifer is a mostly stay at home, thirty-something mother of almost six. While she used to be a reasonably intelligent person, she seems to have lost some all-important brain cells in the course of giving birth to and raising her beautiful kiddos. In her spare time (hah!), she enjoys reading, reality tv (hanging her head in shame now), gardening, camping, and hiking.
Sarah is a sixteen year old GIRL, complete with eye-rolling, giggling, and boy-related angst. Her hobbies include texting, dancing, texting, and finding new and inventive ways to avoid contact with her younger siblings. She is also an honors student, and can be a joy to have around the house when she wants something from her parents.
Daniel is fourteen going on seventy. He is responsible, practical, conscientious, and has a great sense of humor. Whew! He is also an honors student and self-proclaimed computer geek and can often be seen wandering the halls of the Jr. High with his HTML textbook in hand. He is also on the Jr. High tennis team, enjoys soccer, plays the piano, and has been selected as 1st trombone in the school Jazz band.
Emma (aka Noodle) is an adventurous ten year old. She is a budding violinist who enjoys snow sports, soccer, and playing with her pet chickens (Rowena, Helga, and Albus – she’s also a big Harry Patter fan). She is the family space cadet and spends lots of time in “Emmaland.” She is a terrific big sister, and is also very good at disappearing whenever there is work to be done.
Joshua is a mischievous six year old who is looking forward to playing spring soccer. He enjoys making “bunny ears” in pictures, building bionicles, messing up his bedroom, catching bugs, and playing all kinds of superhero games with his friends.
Jakob is our two year old family diva. He enjoys tormenting his sisters, tormenting his brothers, tormenting the kitty, and being the center of attention. He is also very athletic (for a two year old) and gives the world’s best hugs and sticky kisses!
