Mika likes doing things that aren’t fun. For example, she is attempting law school with the lofty goal of eventually serving as a state appellate judge.
Evan (12) wants to be “an archaeologist or something.” He’s a fan of Minecraft, butterfly knives, and having our dog Zelda sleep in his room.

Ramona (5) is a drop of golden sun. She is endlessly content with life. We don’t plan on letting Ramona grow up. Ever.
