All About Me
I'd like to tell you a little something about me...my life
...my background...my hopes and dreams.... and perhaps share some of
my experiences with you. My name is Bonnie and I live with my husband
Vince, in a small lake community in South Jersey. We have two
beautiful red-headed daughters, Andrea and Megan.
This is our home. We've
only lived here for a few months. We have yet to enjoy our first
summer on the lake, but the Fall was wonderful and I'm looking
forward to the first big snowfall! Another event we are happily
anticipating is the annual "lake-parade" in the Spring, when
residents decorate their boats and float around the lake vying for
prizes. So far, everyone that we have met here is extremely kind and
1996 was a big year for us in several ways. The move to
the lake was a big event, but an even more important event took place
in July! On July 23, 1996, Juan Carlos Santiago was born to our
Megan. He was a whopping 9lbs. 3 and 1/2 oz. And 21 inches from stem
to stern. He was, and is, the most beautiful baby in the world
! (Of course I'm not the least bit biased!)
This is Carlos...
otherwise known as "Boo-Boo" at 4 months. What an exciting life he
has led so far! He has met "the hairy beast" (our Cocker Spaniel,
Taffy) As well as the two cats...err..one cat and one kitten, and
our parrot. He met Santa Clause at the mall, and while waiting in
line, he charmed everyone (as usual) with his smiles and good humor.
He laughs more than any baby I have ever seen...despite the fact
that he just cut his first two teeth! Mommy and Daddy,
(Megan and Carlos Sr) are doing a marvelous job of raising a happy,
healthy baby. I'm very proud of all three of them!

And this is the famous
HAIRY BEAST!! Taffy is such a doofus...
he thinks he's a person...hmmm....maybe he is.
Another significant event of 1996 concerns my profession. I am
a teacher. I hold a BA in Elementary Education, an MA in Reading
Education, and I am certified as a Reading Specialist as well as a
Teacher of Reading for grades K-12. I taught Communications Lab in
a High School...which means I taught reading and writing, primarily
to those students who were at risk for failing the New Jersey High
School Proficiency Test...and thereby unable to graduate with a High
School Diploma. I loved my students, my employers, my fellow
teachers, and my job. But unfortunately, due to health problems,
I was granted a disability retirement. At first I hated it! But
now I'm getting used to it...and realize I must concentrate on
improving my health as much as possible. So...I have taken up
website construction as a hobby!
