Well, I took a bit of time off, more that I just ran out of time to blog and didn't get here. I am going to try to set a bit of time aside each couple of days to come here and chit chat. I am very excited for a New year, each year always brings a new adventure. Last year in 2008, of course part of my adventure was watching my children grow another year older, that is always hard, but we shared a fantastic year together, we went to Disney World, that was Daniel and Samantha's first time and for Nolan and Aaron, they had not been in 10 years, we went with friends which made the trip even more fun, we went to Great Wolf Lodge so the older boys could go to prom, we spent various summer days at the lake, river and other assorted places, we made some new friends and shared assorted holidays together, the children were in a Christmas Pageant which was so much fun, Dave and I really enjoyed watching all of the children perform, what a fun group. We rang in the New Year with Dave's sister and family which was a blast.
This year holds lots of fun in store as well, we will begin by learning to ski/snowboard next week, should be lots of fun. Plus I am working at getting a bit more organized and back to caring for my family, we baked a lot during the holidays but no bread or normal year round goodies I like to have so it is back to basics for me, but this time I am involving the children, we have decided our children need to get informed about homesteading, and all that goes along with it, I have been waiting for my farm, but how silly not to use our skills and share them with the children, and learn what we don't know. So I am planning my much larger garden for this year and collecting goods to can, make our own yogurt (yummy, my favorite), I made lots of granola for gifts this year but completely forgot to make us some too, that is on the sheet for this week.
Anyway as I begin my routine I will post some of what we accomplish on here, it makes me feel some what accountable and I do love to share.
See you soon.
