Slowing Down

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
--jury duty
--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.

Glad to hear it! I'm ready for things to settle down around here. If we could only decide on a place to move...

In the meantime, if you ever want company sitting an relaxing while sipping tea, let me know.

Congratulations on the new house! I'm excited for you all. We're on a similar timeline, although we have a few more projects before we'll be slowing down!
