Work and family: Making it work
Balanced Work/Life Married Couple
Beyond work, Nick and I find ways to be active in our children’s lives (Ryan – 9, Dana – 6) that go beyond school work. This gives us quality time together as a family and allows Nick and me to continue practicing leadership skills. Extra-curricular family activities include many scouting events, which teach our kids to have good morals and values in life. These events have led us into leadership roles including Cub Master (Nick) Den Leader (Nick), Webmaster (Beth), and Fundraiser (Beth) for a Cub Scout Pack and as a Cookie Manager (Beth) for a Daisy Troop.
With a busy schedule and as scouting season wraps up, I (Beth) find myself unprepared to run my first mini-marathon (bucket list item after recovering from a stroke in 2007-08) so I recently signed up as a volunteer runner for my son’s Track & Field team.
Beyond this we live a very nice life as past leader/managers while surviving nicely as we have a ton of fun together as a family!
