Sports, Outdoor Activities – and Grocery Shopping Keep Busy Ward Family United
Posted on July 28, 2011
In 1988, a plan of destiny was intertwined when a Mt. Carmel High School dance – known as WARP – would unite one man, Scott, and one woman, Terri, in a love that would last a lifetime. “Even though the girls were supposed to ask the boys, Scott beat me to the punch,” said Terri Ward.
From that moment on, they were inseparable and eventually married in 1996.
Both of their families had moved to the Park Village neighborhood in Rancho Penasquitos in search of job opportunities and stayed in the area. The couple ended up going to the same schools from middle school through high school. Now, after 16 years, they still live in Park Village and have built their own family.
A corporate controller, Scott has worked for Evans Hotels since 1995. Terri has worked for BAE Systems since 1995. She is a chief architect working with software, hardware and systems engineers. “We have three children: A daughter Taylor Ward, who is 12 and attends Mesa Verde and is in the 7th grade; a son Cameron, who is 9 and attends Park Village Elementary School and is in the 4th grade; and last December we were so excited to introduce our newest family member, another daughter Shay,” Terri said. “She was our long awaited blessing and has taught us more about the strength and love in our family than anything else.”
When Scott is not working, he is coaching Taylor’s softball teams from recreation league to all-stars and is heavily involved in the PQ Girls Softball Association, including being a board member. Cameron is involved in baseball and basketball. Terri is an avid runner and has competed in full and half marathons.
When they are not involved in their separate activities, the family enjoys camping in the California mountains and going to the beach to walk their dogs. They recently re-discovered their love for kayaking and are pursuing it again. Another love they have is Montana. “We love to be in Montana, canoeing, fishing, bear spotting and relaxing,” Terri said. “We plan on buying land soon and eventually retiring there.”
Their family tries to do as many things as possible together. “Whether we are attending sporting events or just hanging out in the living room,” Terri explained. “It’s important to find quality time.”
“We love to play video games together, cook together and even clean together,” she said. “Plus, you can almost always find all five us cruising the aisles of the grocery store on Sunday. And if you happen to be in the paper towel aisle with us, join us in the paper football game that runs its course when we reach the eggs.”
