2009... a year we will never forget.

A year in review:
Ethan turned 9, the last of the single digit years and Serah turned 7.
The kids and I finished out one year at the Academy and then we headed back home to homeschooling.
We took trips to;
Alabama to spend time with Grand Tacon and Ladye,
Carlsbad Caverns New Mexico with two great families... we had so much fun we're thinking of making it an annual event,
Surfside beach to enjoy a fabulous week with the Cook/Waters clan,
And traveled through 8 states on a round trip Thanksgiving vacation that totally blessed us (we spent a week most of the time in North Carolina with the Guys).
We've been on a journey of discovery of what God has planned for our family spiritually and what church will look like for us.
We found out we were expecting another child and lost it to heaven in 4 days.
We've experienced some of the highest of highs and lowest of lows of our lives this year but our God has carried us through and hopefully we've learned some things along the way.
We've been blessed by the joy of traveling through this life with friends and family that are as real with us as we are with them. We know God is on his throne and has our family in his hands.

WOW, you guys traveled about as much as we did this year (but you definitely had more variety of states).

I also wanted to say I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. We've been there before and it's so very painful. I hurt to know of others going through that mourning process.

I've been away a while, just busy with life, but I should be around more often with the completion of this degree. I'm now following your 'plain path' and will put this family blog address in my list, too.

I look forward to reading more in the coming year!
