Tell us about your family:

Married to a wonderful elementary teacher who is taking some time away from teaching to be a stay-at-home-mom for our first son who just arrived home 5 weeks ago. He was born 3 months early and spent just over 10 weeks in the York Hospital NICU. Great news though, he is doing great now and is a perfectly healthy baby boy.
