Life is always active in the Karcher household. Connie is in retail advertising and we have three boys: Alex, 11, Colgan, 5, Courtland, 2
Our days are challenging, as logistics alone can keep any family busy. As most parents know, kids, school & extracurricular activities make daily living an adventure and our family is no exception.
Somehow we manage... and having fun in the process is always the priority.
