Week At A Glance

This week flew by. Julianna had her 2nd week of preschool and is doing really well. She’s picking up English quickly. (And she talks nonstop!) She also turned 4 this week.
Jacob was inducted into the National Junior Honor Society. We are very proud of him! He works really hard at school. All 3 kiddos are having a great school year.
So, here are a few pics…

Embracing The New

Cannot believe it’s 2014. (I’m pretty sure I say that every year!) This has been a busy/crazy/fun/eventful year for our family. The obvious would be gaining a family member! But the boys have had a good year, too. They’re both doing well at school and have really been great with Julianna. We’ve had a lot of fun over Christmas break, mainly, just doing a lot of nothing.

Last year, I chose a word for the year. (Do you do that, too, or just me?) It was “intentional”. People say choosing a word helps you focus and prioritize your life. So, this year’s word will be “embrace.” Embrace life, embrace love, embrace others. I need to embrace the life I’ve been given and not worry about how other people choose to live. Be loving—unconditionally… to those I know and those I do not.

I’m looking forward to this year. I love watching our kids grow and learn more about themselves and how they want to live. And I love learning from them, too. I love their sense of adventure, their sense of humor, and their love of learning. All 3 of them.

Goodbye ’13 and happy 2014! May you and I embrace everything it has to offer!
