|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
We are always doing something! We both enjoy hiking and camping. We own a camper and are excited to take this out more often. We enjoy almost every aspect of the great outdoors and love to take our dogs along for the journey. When there is a slow day in our schedule, you will find Ashley curled up with the dogs and a good book. During football season, Ashley will also be keeping close tabs on her Ohio State Buckeyes. Jonathan volunteers with a local boy scout troop in his free time. Jonathan is an Eagle Scout and recognizes that his scouting journey is a big part of who he is today. We love surrounding ourselves with close friends and their families and our house is always open to those wanting to spend a relaxing afternoon with some good food.
We are both Christians and traditionally will attend a non-denominational church service. We promise to raise your child in a home with Christian values and where everyone is accepted.
|Our Musical Interest|
Music is such a powerful thing! Our household is almost always full of music. Ashley and Jonathan couldn't be more different in their music tastes! Ashley was in chorus and musical theater growing up and her music choice varies depending on her mood! Jonathan enjoys something with a heavier bass traditionally, typically alternative rock, and was in the band growing up. Both of us know how to read music and would love to share the joy of music with your child.
|About Our Home|
We own a three bedroom home with a large fenced in backyard. We have a huge playroom set up that is ready for your child to make a mess in and enjoy. We also have a library space set up in our home that is full of books and a record player that is one of our favorite places in the house. Our house is on a cul-de-sac with super supportive neighbors.
We are a short drive from lots of fun things to do including local parks, a zoo, and local sporting events. We also have two amazing rescue dogs who enjoy some sunshine and walks on the local greenway systems. Our dogs, Harley and Riley, enjoy time with young children and are very excited to have a new best friend in the household to cuddle up with.
