A year has flown by

So, I thought I would blog again (at least this once) and see if anyone notices.  :-)  It's been almost a year since my last post and that's just a really long time.  I really don't know if I've had anything worth saying, so you probably didn't miss out of anything.  During the past year I moved to another (smaller and cheaper) house.  And one of the fun things about buying a new house is watching the flowers bloom in the spring and discovery what kinds of stuff the previous owners planted.  I've got some really pretty yellow roses by my front porch.  That's fun.  While I love the roses, I would never personally plant a rose bush because 1) they are hard to maintain with their sharp pointy thorns and 2) they bloom for such a short time out of the year and the rest of the year look stupid.

But for now, I like them.

And other than that, our year has consisted of me working a ton and the kids going to school, Sarah working at a restaurant and Libby started working there a couple months ago, too.  And Jacob plays hockey year round- the travel season ended in March, but the clinics and 3-on-3 continues.  And Libby still takes her art classes.  And loves to shop at Hobby Lobby and make us cute things.  And Sarah is involved in all kinds of school activities and getting ready to graduate from high school in a couple weeks and then off to college in the Fall.  I do not know where the time has gone.  We are going to miss her terribly, but I'm very excited for her to embark on this new phase of her life.

Rufus had to spend two months outside in my friend's kennel while we were in between houses and it was pretty cold outside, so he is just grateful to be living indoors again.

And that about sums things up.

Maybe I will make this a regular occurrence again.
