Hi! My name is Mary Schuster.  I chose a patriotic theme for my home page because July fourth has always been my favorite holiday.  I always enjoyed decorating my bike for the parade, all the food, games, and the fireworks!  I grew up in Moscow, Ohio a very small town on the Ohio River, about twenty five mile east of Cincinnati.   I graduated from New Richmond High School in 1997.  After graduating I went off to college at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, where I completed the first two years of my education.

I moved to Valdosta, Georgia four years ago after getting engaged to my husband who is in the USAF and stationed at Moody Air Force Base.  We married in December 2000 and had our first son in April 2001!  My son, Mason David is twenty-one months old.  He is the light of my life.  I love being a mom and spending time with Mason.  We love playing outside and reading together.  I love taking pictures.  I would like to incorporate photography into my career eventually.  When I have time I go to Legends Fitness to workout, which I enjoy.  I also like to write, mostly journaling and poetry. 


After taking some time off I've decided to finish my education to become a teacher.  I am a junior at Valdosta State University.  I am seeking my Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education.  I plan to complete my studies in December of 2005.
