Wow. This year is over. Really over. This year has been kinda hard, but it has drawn me so much closer to my dear Savior!
So, on we go!
~ Our largely growing church broke up and it was very difficult trying to find a new church. It was a very hard substitution for me, (and my whole family) (Jan.)
~ A dear family we know faced a devastating event that will forever change their lives. It effected so many. (Feb.)
~ In April I hit my one-year mark for having braces!
~ In May my cousin got married! It was a wonderful wedding! I’m so happy for them!
It was kinda awkward because it was such a fancy wedding and we aren’t fancy people….
~I became a teenager in June! I had a wonderful birthday, but my plans didn’t go as planed… I wanted to go swimming, but…the WATER WAS SO COLD!!!
Friends did get to come over that night and we had fun!
~At the end of June us and two other families created a church! It was so nice having unity fellowship again!!!
~ Our family welcomed Levi Malachi into this world on Aug.5! HE.IS.GROWING.TO.FAST!!!! It is wonderful having a new lil’ brother around! He recently kinda found his voice and always seems to be smiling and cooing!
~I met my first pen-pal in October!!! It was so nice getting to meet Jehosheba! Definitely a day to remember!
The bad thing is, we forgot to take pictures together……*facepalm*
~ The end of November brought another devastating event to another family. It was heart-wrenching and just seeing their pain was worth breaking into tears.
~The middle of December found daddy in the ER with severe stomach pains. He came home 2 days later with no appendix. (Please keep him in your prayers as he is still continuing to recover.)
~CHRISTMAS!!!! It was a wonderful day spent as a family!
~ We hosted a sweet family from Canada last week! It was a wonderful time of sweet fellowship and plenty of memories!
~OH, and I nicknamed this year the year of moving. Why? Because FIVE families ended up moving this year! Three closer, two moved away. Hehe, people we know barely ever move, so 5 in a year was pretty big! *laugh*
~ I became a better artist this year! I completed my first successful pastel drawing and watercolor paints became my best friend :).
~ Speaking of friends, I became so much closer to my dear sister, and really became better friends with 5 kids that I know consider my closest friends!
I think that about summed up most of the major events………
So yeah…….this year was definitely unlike any other year…
Until next year!
