Audrey had a big year, as well. She is now 5 years old. She finished up her PreK year... and started Kindergarten! Seriously can't believe she is in school! She's done very well. She's reading a bit. We haven't done many extra curricular activities. She finished up with dance in May and decided not to continue this year. She's been pretty sick - 4 bouts of strep throat and 2 turns of the stomach flu. So, we've laid a little low with her. She is still active in Awana at church and also joined the Children's Choir. She's all about Barbie and Zhu Zhu pets right now... and is showing a big interest in playing the guitar.
Derek & I made a big decision this year to move to a new church. It really has been a fantastic move for our family. The girls have done excellent! They love going to church and have really learned a lot. Audrey has such a sweet heart and is quite knowledgeable for her age. Makes me proud. I've gotten involved with a Women's Bible Study and the music program. God has really blessed me.
Derek has done well at work. He has several upcoming opportunities. He's still on the executive board of his culinary group and loving it. He's a little less involved in church because he's had to keep the girls a lot for my music stuff. He's a good guy!
So, I started out the year with big plans to lose weight. I did. But, I gained most of it back, sadly. But, on the bright side... I'm ending the year 12 pounds lighter than I started it! I'll shoot for the same this year. Working towards consistency. I also went back to work part time, which has been an adjustment. I've been given some pretty amazing opportunities through the music program at church. A new one starts in January, as well. Lots of great things to look forward to.
I'll share a few of my favorite pics from the year. I hope you all have a wonderfully blessed new year!
