About Them

This is Jason:


He's the guy who makes it all happen.  Jason is a Construction Manager for an engineering company here in Michigan.  He loves golfing, water-skiing, and snowmobiling and will do just about anything to get out for a ride on his Harley.  The kids adore him and I do, too.

This is Owen:

He is fourteen and is in Eighth Grade.  Owen loves fishing, catching bugs, swimming and playing any kind of game, from cards to video games.  He is such a funny, thoughtful, caring and respectful boy.  He is naturally smart and I have yet to see him study for a single test, but he always manages perfect marks on his report card!  Owen has read the entire Harry Potter series twice in the last nine months, along with any other books people send in his direction.  Although he might be shy when you first meet him, it doesn't take long for him to warm up to new people.  He's been known to say some of the funniest things I've ever heard.

This is Emerson:

She is twelve and is in Seventh Grade.  Emerson is all things GIRL.  She loves wearing make-up, fancy shoes, painted nails, and jewelry, and is all about fashion!  Although she can be a little high-maintenance, she's generally a sweetie.  Em is also a little smarty pants and can do everything Owen can do-from reading to fishing to baseball.  She's in a girls' club at school and loves showing off her moves in gymnastics class!

This is Greyson:

He is ten, and he is the ONE.  Need I say more??  Hahaha.  OK.  Greyson is something, that's for sure.  He's currently in Fourth Grade.  Grey is a TOTAL joker and we sure do have a hard time keeping a straight face sometimes with him.  I think he has a secret agenda geared towards TERRORIZING all of the other kids.  He absolutely loves working with his hands and helping out all of the men in the family with their projects. He's a snuggler at heart and really wants to be a part of everything that happens around here.

This is Alayna:

She is eight and is in Third Grade this year.  Alayna is a very happy, cheerful little girl.  Her laugh might be the greatest sound in the world.  She is gentle, quiet, and snuggly, but can totally stand up for herself, too!  She's not going to get pushed around by anyone!  She loves being around all of the kids, but her favorite is Owen.  She lights up at the sight of him! She's a small wonder doing the backstroke in the pool and has a kick-ass roundoff in gymnastics! 

This is Nash:

He is five years old and is the life of any party. He starts Early Fives this year, and can't wait to ride the bus.  He's got a twinkle in his eye and is completely irresistible.  Nash loves the action and constant attention he is given by all of the kids.  He's a keeper!  He's turning into a little bit of a joker and often when I hear, "Hey, MOM!" and answer, "What?" I get a "Chicken butt." in response!
