Happy New Year!!!!

Gosh, I am still in shock at how quickly the year has gone by.....
This has been an absolute crazy year for me and my family. Mostly wonderful with a few rather painful bumps in the road. As I look back on the year I am struck by a few major realizations;
1. We are Happy!
2. We have more friends as a family than ever before.
3. Boy have we have come a long way from.
Our decision to home school combined with my work with Barefoot Books has allowed for a lot of this. It is amazing how different a year can be. We began the past year rushing around getting Theo back and forth to an amazing private school. Even with the financial assistance we received it expensive and I personally was always stressed out! Gabbie was left constantly stuck in the car as we chafferered Theo to play-dates and school. Looking back I can see why the whole family seemed rather miserable.
Over the summer with a the stress of waiting to receive financial assistance from the school (which didn't come) and Gabbie hurting her poor little finger the decision to home school was made. It was one of the hardest and best decisions we have made.
Happy New Years!!!!!
Thanks for listening :)
I would love to hear about everyones year please feel free to leave a comment!
One person will receive a book of there choice from Barefoot books!!!!!

Hi, I came over from Mayas Mom. It looks like we have a lot in common! I have had a lot of changes but all is good! We are selling our house and have had some hard times but I am thankful for our health as well!

I had to work NYE, but it turned out a LOT less horrid than I thought it was going to be. And I got to be home by midnight, and holler Happy New Year with/at my family...so it was all good!
