The Vogl Family
My wife Nicole and I met at the tail end of our freshman year at Keene State College, and we celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary this August. Nicole grew up in Nashua, NH and I grew up in Colchester, VT, so our New England roots are deep and our families still live there. My career with the Boy Scouts has taken us from Vermont to Connecticut where we started our family and ultimately to Rochester, NY for the last nearly three years.
Nicole was a paraprofessional, working one-on-one with some special needs children, but when our first child was born, we made the decision for her to stay home and take care of him instead of sending him to daycare. When she's not chasing our kids, Nicole adds her beautiful vocals to the community choir. She also serves as den leader for our newest Lion Den.
We have been blessed with three wonderful children, each of whom is unique in their own way and of course, are future Eagle Scouts (no pressure though!):
Logan recently crossed over into Troop 166 after starting on his Scouting trail as a Tiger Cub with Milford's Pack 17. Like just about every 11-year-old boy, he loves playing Minecraft, reading, practicing basketball and wants to be a writer. He's even written several chapters of his book about "Quickblade." Logan has been an incredible representative of Scouting, helping greet guests as they arrive for special events and Scouting functions.
Charlotte just started kindergarten this fall and of course was the first girl Lion in Macedon, NY. Not that she really had a choice. Charli loves running around, practices ballet and plays soccer (with her coach mommy), and enjoys playing with Caden.
Caden is three, going on thirteen and loves puzzles, snacks, games and trying to do anything his big sister or brother are doing. He takes life head-on (sometimes literally)! He loves visiting daddy's office and trying just about anything.
Scouting has been a part of our family and has helped us all come closer together and have shared experiences and memories that will last a lifetime.
