Wow, I’m always amazed when a new year shows up. And I also typically wonder what the heck I was doing during the previous year that made it fly by so quickly.

If I had to venture a guess, I’d say I was probably busy homeschooling, blogging, and all of the other things that come with being a wife, mother, and homeschooler. So since I’m feeling all nostalgic and all…I thought it would be fun to take a quick look at our 2012 year in review.



This year…

Strawberry Shortcake turned 9! Turbo turned 8…Tinker Bell turned 6…and the Teeny Tot turned 4! Gasp…

And I turned…oh never mind.

Let’s just say I don’t like this aging thing at all! For me or the kiddos!

I wish they could stay babies forever. whaaa!

  1. Although I haven’t yet purchased any of your materials (my kids are 4, 2, 1 and on the way), your blog has been a huge encouragement to me. I do plan to homeschool and seeing what you are doing with your kids makes me excited for those future plans. It won’t be long until we are where you are now!

  2. I love your blog so much! I don’t mind getting older. My 30s have been the best adult decade yet! My kids turned 10 (Jan b-day so he will be 11 in 17 days! EEP!), 9 (a newbie 9 since he has a Dec b-day), 6 and 3. It was amazing to have a double digit kiddo. Wasn’t it just yesterday I had become his mommy?? I turned 35 and loving it!
    We also started a new therapy with our special needs son with much hope (who doesn’t love extra doses of hope) and we started the process of raising the funds ($8000+! Eep!) for a service dog for him. Huge step of faith for us,but exciting all the same. We also got a HUGE and very,very, very unexpected surprise when we discovered Baby #5 will debut in the spring. This baby shouldn’t have been conceived so I guess it has an amazing purpose 🙂
    What a year! I am very much looking forward to what 2013 has to bring 🙂
    Happy New Year to you and yours!

    Andrea Gardner
