Okay, so I've wanted to start a blog for awhile now. I'm not sure of the topics or content at this point, but figure it will focus alot on the kids and their many adventures! The main characters will be Erick, a distinguished business man who is also an excellent father and husband. Me, Tonia, a mother of 3, who is on a continuing mission to find that perfect balance between family and self. Rebecca, eldest daughter of the Rowe household who has a good heart and a very strong personality. Harrison, only son of the Rowe household who at the tender age of 10 is torn between a future career in acting or his lofty ambitions of becoming a theoretical physicist. Last, but not least there is Isabella. At just 7 1/2, Bella has had more life experiences that some adults. She was born perfectly healthy, but at just 7 weeks she developed bacterial meningitis that left her profoundly deaf. She has had bilateral cochlear implants since she was 6 1/2 months old, making her the youngest bilateral recipient in the world. The meningitis also created some learning gaps for Bella which we work to improve. All in all just a typical family of 5!
