I am married to Novalee and have a 14 year old daughter Alexandra (Lexi), who Novalee has dedicated the last 5 years homeschooling. They work together on a couple home-based businesses - creating, manufacturing and selling jewelry & bath products at craft fairs. Lexi is involved in 4-H light horse and drama class, loves animals & science and wants to be a veterinarian.
