Father Charles’s career is quite apt for his surname – he is the town’s cheesemonger. Be it aged or fresh, soft or hard, Charles knows his cheeses. His favorite right now is a barrel-aged feta with olive oil and fresh oregano. He wants everyone to love cheese as much as he does. When not sampling and considering new and interesting cheese varieties for his shop, Charles enjoys playing billiards, refinishing old furniture, and reading about current events.
Mother Charity teaches the younger students at school. Her favorite part of teaching is storytime, because of how it encourages the children to enjoy reading. She spends lots of time working on educational and interesting lesson plans for the children – her goal is always to make learning fun. She is always enthusiastic about real-world learning, so field trips are common for her class. In her free time, she enjoys acting in plays, writing letters, and scrapbooking.
Daughter Chelsea’s favorite thing to do is paint. Even at her young age, she is quite talented. She loves going outside with her easel and acrylic paints to capture the beautiful vistas around Crabapple Crossings. Her parents are very proud to feature several of Chelsea’s paintings around their house. Of course, her favorite school subject is art class. When not engaged in creative endeavors, Chelsea also enjoys going fishing, reading, and playing on the playground.
Son Chauncey’s favorite subject in school is science, and he often brings that passion home with him, doing science experiments in the family kitchen. The house rule is “nothing exploding” after last year’s vinegar and baking soda volcano fiasco. But otherwise his curious nature is encouraged by his parents. His other hobbies include doing brain teasers and logic puzzles, eating pizza, and playing checkers.
