We have a son named Finley, we call him Finn and if you ask him today, he calls himself Finney! Jeremy has a sister; her family does not live in town. Sheila has three siblings, two who live in town. Sheila's nieces and nephews call her 'Aunt She She'.
We have many family members that live close by including grandparents who are very integral parts in our daily lives. Sheila also has many aunts, uncles and cousins that live nearby. We see family frequently and always get together for birthdays, graduations, holidays, or BBQs.
We have many family traditions and one of our favorites is the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Each year we plan out and build a float to be in the parade; we have been doing so since the beginning of the parade here in town. To celebrate the parade and our work, we end the day with a big family dinner where we sit back and reminisce about the past.
Our family is unique as we have a strong family support system and maintain very close relationships. We have a strong desire to make the world a better place. We do this through our jobs, volunteering in the community and maintain a goal to pass on the spirit of philanthropy to our children. Our family is extremely supportive with our adoption plan. They are excited for our new child and can't wait to be a part of their life!
Our neighborhood consists of many children and has many events throughout the year to celebrate the holidays. Kids in our neighborhood are frequently playing outside, kicking the soccer ball or shooting baskets. The city has festivals around 4th of July, art fairs and a great farmers market on the weekends. We have a great parks and rec system, top rated schools and one of the lowest community crime rates.
Some time ago, we moved into a larger house in anticipation of growing our family. Our house has four bedrooms. We are currently in the process of finishing the basement to provide additional play and activity areas. Our rec room is our favorite room. It has many toys and is great for movies! We have a comfy couch and love to pop popcorn while cuddling up to watch movies together.
We enjoy spending most of our hot summer days at 'Granddaddy and Gram's' pool. Within walking distance, we have access to a beautiful park with tall trees shading the kids’ playground area. There are many slides, a sandbox with local toys donated by the community and a man-made creek the kids can go splash their sandy feet in!
