So far, 2013 has brought our family:
--an unexpected kitchen remodel in our rental house
--the search for and purchase of a new house
--updating (floors and walls) of the new house
--the loss of my grandfather
--an unexpected trip to Florida for the funeral
--10 weeks of teaching a Parent/Toddler Program
--Jonathan's regular full-time+ work schedule
--the older three girls' first ever musical performance (three times!)
--not one, but TWO car accidents. Thankfully, both without injury.
--the move into the new house
--two trips to Michigan (and a few chances to host grandparents here)
--the regular daily needs of a four girls, ages 6, 5, 3, and 1.
It has been a wild ride. But now we are in and declaring that it is time for life to slow way down so we can enjoy the show. We plan to hang curtains and pictures this weekend and maybe even tackle a few more unpacked boxes. But that's about it. For a good long time.
