Lots has been happening lately but I am way behind with my blogging due to a lot of computer problems. Right now I can post everything but pics. so I'm just going to attempt a brief, point by point update.
*We welcomed in the New Year just us five. 2012 was a tough year for us and we are hoping for better things to come. We are continuing to try to move towards doing another adoption and continue to hit road blocks. We keep moving forward anyway...just a bit more slowly than we'd prefer.
*Our beloved senior Boxer, Jake, continued to fail health-wise. We said our tearful last good-byes to him in early January. Even our wonderful vet cried. We knew it was the right thing for our sweet old fellow but we have all missed him so much! We are down to one dog now & the house feels empty!
*I decided to take on a long-term, pet-sitting contract. We will have two large, older dogs staying with us for 6 months while their Mama works in Africa. Hello, full house again!
*We got back to home schooling after a good Christmas break.
Co-op, group classes, new zoo membership, PE class, kid's science museums and Luke's soccer practice keep us hopping.
*I am still getting 4 allergy shots each week. Hoping for healing!
*I am back on the treadmill 3-4 times/week and feel good about that.
*John and the boys are taking down an old barn and have cool plans to re-build part of it into a really, really neat club house for our back yard.
*God has been good, is good and we know He will be here in the future too. We look forward to what happens next...
