"Curiosity gets me and I'd like to find out, but she (Kateri) loves the surprise and when the moment comes, it's fun for us having not found out," said Jay Schwandt, who says that both he and his wife are big proponents of having a big family. "We are never really surprised though, and it's been a boy every time!"

Kateri is actually hoping the baby is a boy thanks to all the experience she's had with Tyler (22), Zach (19), Drew (17), Brandon (15), Tommy (13), Vinny (11), Calvin (9), Gabe (8), Wesley (6), Charlie (4), Luke (2) and Tucker (16 months.) She also says that having a girl would mean having to make some drastic changes in the house.
Despite that, Jay says, "I would sure like to have a girl. I have experienced all of the boy stuff and I think it would be neat to parent from the other side of the gender spectrum for once."
Jay says that their sons are split 50-50 as to whether they want a sister or brother. Jay had just one sibling growing up, but Kateri is the 13th of 14 children, seven boys and seven girls.
How does such a big family handle the day to day challenges? Jay says that the boys work and play together and enjoy being part of a big family.
"The older boys help out a bunch with the younger ones, and everyone just loves being around together," said Jay. "We love family dinner when everyone is here, going out to eat all together, and playing football or kickball in the yard with everyone."
Jay is the president of Global Land Solutions, LLC, in Grand Rapids, which does surveying and mapping.
The Schwandts look forward to become a family of 15 in 2015. The thing they enjoy most according to Jay, "Just being all together."

"We knew when we moved here that we were here to stay," described Jay Schwandt of Global Land Solutions, L.L.C.The new Rockford business specializes in land management, surveying and mapping.

Global Land Solutions is a blend of old tradition and new technology, a combination that is hard to beat."My father has been a licensed surveyor for nearly 30 years.That's how I was introduced to the profession," Schwandt said.Today's technology, however, puts a whole new spin on this time-honored profession."The equipment we use is as high tech as it gets right now," Schwandt described."We just purchased a fully robotic total station, which allows one person to perform the duties that generally require a two-person crew."
The introduction of robotics equipment and other new technology such as Global Positioning Systems (GPS) adds a new dimension to surveying and mapping.In addition to increased productivity and turn around times, Global Land Solutions is able to provide boundary, topography, ALTA/ACSM, mortgage and construction layout survey services.The company specializes in surveying and mapping for communications companies throughout Michigan and offers assistance to out of state developers.

"With all the growth and development taking place in this area, I hope to begin to build those long-term, professional relationships that everyone hopes for when starting a new business," Schwandt said."Upon passing the bar exam, I plan to incorporate that into what I am doing now to provide to clients services not found anywhere else.I am looking forward to watching this company grow and becoming a fixture in the Rockford community."
Schwandt earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Surveying Engineering from Ferris State University and is a licensed surveyor in Michigan.He is also in his third year at Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing and plans to receive his Juris Doctor degree in May 2003.He formerly served as Private Development and Survey Group Manager for a large engineering firm, and brings extensive experience in surveying and land development.
For Schwandt, the move to Rockford wasn't just business, it was personal as well.Schwandt and his wife, Kateri, have five sons under the age of ten and are committed to the community."We are very involved with Rockford Little League, Rockford Hockey Association and the Rockford Public Schools," Schwandt said."If everything goes as well as we hope it will, our roots will sink firmly here in Rockford and our boys will have a tradition to carry on."
