We have homeschooled our children as well, as we
contribute to the public school system for those
that cannot and should not take it on themselves,
or cannot afford a private education.  Each of
our kids has grown up in our home and puppet
business and hopefully learning to contribute to
the world.   Ryan just graduated from college
with top honors Summa Cume Laude, and will make a
difference in the world paying his own way and
helping others that cannot.  Not everyone can do
this, so we contribute with our taxes, time,
tithe and extra charity as we can to help others.

Ryan has a business degree but an opportunity to
pursue his music which I have encouraged to do
while he's young and free.  Hopefully he'll be
able to combine them both and pursue the dream
this great country he lives in provides.

The Arts will survive regardless of what the
government does with the funding.   Art is our
heartbeat...our humanity...our God given genius.
