JJGlad JYo D BETH ERICKSON are swinging with joy in front of their home with their children, Kirsten, Samantha and Scott. i i Sean and Beth Erickson Family Most young people grow up in a small town and move to the city. Sean Erickson said, "We needed to get away from the big city." His wife Beth adds, "I like the quiet. It (Ortonvflle) isn't hectic like the cities. People are friendly. They wave at you even if th.ey don't know you." Beth and Sean lived in the Minneapolis area their entire lives ,and decided to move to Ortonville last summer. The area's fine duck hunting called them away from their home in Coon Rapids. "Growing up, I hunted in the Ortonville area," said Scan. Scott, 6, is in the first grade, Kirsten, 4, is in pre-school and Samantha, 2 just loves keeping Morn and Dad busy all day. Their dog Aspen and two cats, Huey and Star, round out the household. Sean's passion for hunting is unmistakable as one enters the family's living room. Many species of ducks are proudly displayed on the walls and within end tables. Beth likes to bake, quilt and sew. The chil-" dren already have an order in for Halloween costumes and new hunting clothes this fall. The Erickson home is located across the street from the athletic field. They are in the middle of remodeling their home, something they love doing together. Beth dreams of "growing old" in her home. Scan thinks a cabin on the lake would be nice some day. "A lake with ducks!" he adds, with a twinkle in his eye. Scan began working for Hasslen Construction upon arriving in Ortonville, while Beth stayed at home with the children. An offer from Royal Insurance in Milbank as a claims adjuster prompted the couple to change roles about six weeks ago. "Scan was a little jealous about all the time I was able to spend with the kids anyway," Beth said. They both agree the change is working out nicely so far. The Ericksons are happy to live in the Ortonville community and enjoy the small town pace of life.
