Here goes anyway:
February: Wild Goose Chase (coming up on February 23 this next year!)
May: My book is out! Words cannot express how I feel.
(See my book website to learn more!)
June: High School Reunion. Such fun reminiscing! Love y'all!
June: Snake Valley Festival
August: Desert Boy starts kindergarten. Wow, a whole other chapter is opening in our lives. His favorite subject? Recess.
August: Another monsoon in a wet late summer. It didn't quite make up for no precipitation in June, but at least it helped.
September: Snake Valley Days BBQ (and the watermelon-eating contest)
September: Wheel-a-thon Fundraiser for the local schools (and a good way to get a little exercise)
September: Ely Half-Marathon--I finished, woohoo!
September: Camping trip with marvelous fall colors
September: Some funky weather
October: Desert Girl enjoying preschool
The other day we had a heavy package at the door. Desert Boy told me, "I'll get it, Mom." I had my hands full but thought it was too heavy for him, so told him to wait a few minutes. He disappeared into the house, came back, and next thing I knew, had wrestled the heavy package into the house. "How did you do that?" I asked him in surprise. He answered, "I went and lifted some weights (dumbbells) in the living room to get stronger, and then I could get the package in the house."
I think I might have to try out his exercise program!
I didn't post everything that happened in my life to Facebook, so important things are missing, but it's fun to remember these moments--many I had forgotten. Every year I print out a book of my blog for the year (I like blog2print.com). That's one of the main reasons I keep up a blog, along with keeping family and friends up-to-date with what we're doing.
We hope you have had a good 2012 and that 2013 will be even better. I'm already thinking about New Year's resolutions. I usually don't do those, but this next year I do have some changes I'd like to make in my life. I'll post them soon so you can help keep me accountable!
