We live in a wonderful neighborhood in Kettering, Ohio, a southern suburb of Dayton. Flyer, the dog, and Logan, the cat, make up our active and enjoyable home. We keep busy with all kinds of activites from cultural (theatre, movies, concerts, music, historical sites) to athletic (swimming, fishing, hiking, biking, Dayton Dragons baseball, volleyball, badminton, bowlinga dn watching soccer). Both Matt and Jose are involved in choir and show choir, and both take voice lessons.
