I thought I would write a “year in review” type post where I would recap the major events of the year for our family, but to be honest, the whole year has been one big adventure. Our kids continue to grow (much to my disappointment) and change. Our lives continue to be busy. There hasn’t been one stand out event, such as there has been in some years.
We are lucky to have happy, healthy children. We are blessed to live in a beautiful part of the world. We are grateful for the opportunity to give the country life a try. In some ways the end of the year is really an artificial milestone. When I wake up on Sunday morning (too early – like all parents of young children) nothing much will have changed.
But even so, changes are on the horizon. I have a new job to start at the end of January. We have a new community to settle into. Hannah starts a new school. If 2011 was about preparing for our country life experiment, then 2012 is the experiment in action. I never make new years resolutions – mainly because I know that I won’t keep them – but my hopes for the new year are high. The experiment has begun.
Hope the new year holds promise for you too!
