amber 3AMBER

Hi. I am wife to Chuck, mother to the two P’s, and a lot more. I love reading, games of any kind, music, and lots of other things. I have lots of hobbies (if you ask Chuck, too many hobbies). I am very competitive, but try hard to keep it under control. I believe in honesty and try to always be that way. This is amazingly hard to write. There are a ton of things that make up who I am. Some are good, some are not – but they are all me. Most of the time I like/love myself but like anyone I have self doubt and a bit too much guilt.

chuck 2CHUCK

I try to pull inspiration for things from anywhere that seems good. I value honesty and I’d like to think that I am open enough to learn about things outside my direct experience. Trying to live with the understanding that we’re specks on Sagan’s Pale Blue Dot means that I want to help create an environment where our children are more aware of the person on the other side of the world than the political enemy on the other side of the world. Another inspiration comes from the Rush lyric from “Territories”

Better the pride that resides
In a citizen of the world
Than the pride that divides
When a colorful rag is unfurled

I will admit that I hate writing things like this because I feel it makes me appear pretentious and self important. In the end, my job is to sit here and try not to screw up too bad.

PBIG P

I am the oldest of the Ps at 6 years old. I am always full of energy and love learning about everything. My favorite things right now are reading, video games, and insects. I love bright colors and the more mismatched the better. I also love to find out how things work and have started to take things a part to find out.

p 4LITTLE p

I am little p at 3 years old. I am all about fast. I love to run and being the first at everything. Some of my favorite things right now are movies, pink, cooking and painting. My favorite movie is “Turbo” because he is fast just like me.

shariShari

I am Amber’s mom. I am very creative and help to come up with lots of  ideas.  I show up to almost all the international days and am a big help with all the cooking and prep. I also join the P’s for dinner every Wednesday, which has been nicknamed veg night at their house. I love being a grandma and Amber says I am very good at it.

chris Chris

I am Chuck’s little brother. I love working on cars and playing video games. I mostly play Ingress and World of Tanks, and have made a name for myself in both. I love being an uncle and am making sure my nieces know everything about cars and my little pony.

misti 3 Misti

I am Chuck and Amber’s sister in law. For a long time Amber called me the red coat that talked to the cats, but we have grown out of that. I love to read and very much enjoy being an Aunt. The reason the P’s are addicted to sweet frog is all my fault. I love photography and have taken some of the pictures on this page.

miaMia

I am Amber’s little sister (although I am a decent amount taller then her :) ). I love being an aunt. I have even taking to doing work outs with the girls they call it Aunt jungle gym time. It is also my job to make sure the p’s grow up with a bit of fashion sense and I have a hard road ahead of me with it.

    I think this is wonderful. As parents, you two are among the very best I know. As people, you’re honest, driven, and loving. As friends, you are the best. I’m blessed to know you.
