Family of four humans, two doggies and two reptiles. I am a nursing instructor for the local community college, during the school year I am gone 3 days a week. My wife (katie) is a stay at home mom who manages our sons' home school program (she is also getting certified as a dyslexia turor) Our sons are 10 and 12 and do a hybrid home school program. They are home 3 days a week and usually have activities in the afternoon. Our house is located on a half acre of property in the middle of Port Townsend, WA. Port Townsend is considered the gateway to the Olympic mountains. Port Townsend is a small Victorian seaport town that is quite eclectic.
