Darlene Rogers

Hello Middleville my name is Darlene and I am excited to join this wonderful, informative group of caring individuals. I arrived in this area in 2004 and intend to remain as close to the coast as possible. My husband and I have been married for eight years and have a busy blended family of seven. Yes Seven! We have two daughters, three sons, a Poodle and a Rottweiler yet somehow we blend well. I guess that makes Nine! Each child participates in at least two extra- curricular activities,(athletics , social organizations or academic) which means we can tell you the best place to sit on any bleacher as well as which school has the best popcorn on the east coast. Our children range from 19 – 13 years old with completely different personalities. The oldest son is serving our country in the Army and our oldest daughter is in college. The youngest three are currently making career plans from high and middle school. Human service is my field of choice and miraculously completed a masters degree with my busy family schedule last year. I’m currently working in a Human service position with some of the best Marines and their families in the country. It is my pleasure to aide those that due to unforeseen circumstances, need a bit of assistance. My passions are spending time with my family, reading, writing, photography, sketching and cooking. I am looking forward to this new journey here in Middleville, so buckle up as we tour life as we know it.


Two or four will do

Our children were invited to a birthday party at Skate Nation.  We weren’t sure where it was located but one we found it we realized it was once another name.  My husband and I have never been but our children remembered it from their camp days with Jacksonville Commons Recreation Center.  Much to our surprise it was fabulous! There was security on the interior and exterior of the building offering a safe place for families to come to enjoy themselves.  Our children were amazed that it had been completely remodeled and the music was up to date.


In 2.4 seconds their friends found them and our three children were whisked off in three different directions.  Lea was taken to trade her shoes for skates which she gladly handed over.  In a matter of minutes she was laced up dancing on four wheels with her friends.  In not even sure if she saw the birthday boy yet.  Kobi was attracted by the flashing lights of the arcade and Cameron went to the concession stand with his crew.  Each of them enjoyed themselves thoroughly like it was the most magical night.  We watched our children as they laugh, sing every song and dance their night away.  It was nice to see such a diverse group of people all in one space doing the same things feeling the same feeling.. SATISFIED and SAFE! Skate nation has our support and we will be looking into booking many birthday parties for years to come.
