Started off the year with lots of walks outside in the freezing weather, and plenty of goals.
The kids began their winter art projects (or 'what's in the art box').
In February, apparently there was no snow and the kids were able to dig in sand, albeit frozen.
We also celebrated Anikka's 2nd birthday with a little family party.
March saw plenty of cousin time...
and the beginning of Float for Life lessons for Ani.
Easter was celebrated in April with easter egg hunts at the grandparents' houses...
and our first try with square foot gardening.
In May the kids often were brought along to the farmer's markets to sample the wares...
and in June, we celebrated Father's Day (without, apparently, a photo of their father!) with a backyard bbq.
In July there was plenty of trips to the zoo,
Ani's first time seeing fireworks,
Lukka's chance to stay up later than everyone else (kids) to *play* with fireworks,
both children's first experience with VBS (and mama some free time!),
and of course a trip that didn't start out so well...
but ended well.
In August we got the kids to the county fair as usual to see the animals,
and welcomed a new cousin to the brood.
October was all about outside with an all-church gathering,
and a carmel apple!
...and we're ending with October and a fall snack, because I barely took out my camera for November and December, and I think y'all should be tired of my December Photos!
