Hobbies, Extracurricular Interests:
I enjoy all of the activities that my 4 children are involved in. Those activities include theater, choir, band, swimming, basketball, soccer, Irish dance, Cub Scouts, and Boy Scouts. When not involved in my children’s activities, I enjoy reading, hiking, camping and working out at the health club. I am also a den leader for my youngest son’s Cub Scout den.
My favorite book is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I have also greatly enjoyed all of the Harry Potter books and all of the Hunger Games books.
