S X 3

Oakley, KS

Today's "S" topic is about three S's.  Son-in-laws, Scott and Steve

My daughters are each married to an S man.  


Scott is married to my older daughter Amy.   They live in a very rural part of Maryland and have two children, Charlotte and Abby.   Amy and Scott are both archaeologists and met while working on a project.

I remember Amy coming home and remarking about meeting a man at the site who was looking for a girlfriend.   The next thing I know, we were meeting that young man - Scott.   They were married a few years later.

This is an ideal match.  They both have a love of nature and history.  They both are avid readers and are teaching their little ones the joys of our natural world and books.

Scott is actively involved in the girls lives.  When possible he attends their school or daycare functions.

He spends quality time with each girl.   Scott grew up in Delaware and returns some weekends to attend to family business.  He will usually take one of the girls so to spend time with each one alone.  We laugh because the girls will argue on whose turn it is to go to the local recycling center with him on Saturday mornings.  They think this is a real treat.

Often when we visit, Amy, Len and I will sit around the dining room table after dinner while Scott cleans up the kitchen and gets the girls ready for bed or whatever else needs to be done.

Looking at pictures I have of Scott, I find I have none downloaded on the compter of him and Amy or him and Abby.  These are of  Scott and Charlotte.  I will have to remember that when we next visit.


Steve is married to our younger daughter Terri.   Steve is in Sales (another S) and is a musician.  He is the lead guitarist and singer (still another S) in a country band.   That is how he and Terri met.   She loves to dance and there he was.   This is the best picture I have of him with the band.  It is dark so difficult to see.  I know there is a way to lighten it, but I don't know how.

Terri and Steve married a little over 2 1/2 years ago.     They bought our New Jersey house and love to entertain as we did.

Steve is extremely talented.  He is an excellent drummer.  I've been told by other drummers he is the best in the South Jersey area.    By far his band is the best in the area as he has a remarkable voice.   Listen to Steve at www.4-wheeldriveband.com

A few years back we vacationed in Scotland with Steve and Terri.  This picture was taken there.

Terri loves to socialize and Steve fits right in.   She, too, has a husband who complements her personality.  I especially appreciate that Steve has a good relationship with Terri's son, our oldest grandson  Justin.

Both Scott and Steve are good husbands and Son-in-Laws.    Today's blog is dedicated to these fine young men.

What a nice blog. You two sound like you have a delightful family. Your daughters did a great job in choosing a husband. Very lucky girls (and guys) indeed.

Most of talk about our offspring and forget their spouses. Sounds like your girls got real keepers
