Happy New Year!

2010 was a year of many changes.

We said some good-byes:

  • To the kids' preschool, which one or more of our children attended for almost half a decade.
  • To Aunt Megan and Uncle Timour, who moved east.
  • To several fish and a couple of frogs.
  • To our dining room (which became our home office).
  • To watering our backyard grass, which kept dying anyway.
  • To day care and after school care.
  • To a whole income (gulp).

We said some big, important hellos:

  • To the arrival of our nephew/cousin Kai.
  • To severl fish and a couple frogs.
  • To kindergarten.
  • To Tate.

We flew a lot of miles (more than 20,000 miles in the air in 2010).
We experienced an up-close-and-personal 4th of July Fireworks show.
We danced down the Pearl River in China.
And we bowled our way through southern Ohio.

We had some colds and fevers and a couple trips to urgent care (but none to the ER!).
We had some cuts and scrapes and a few teeth removed.
We had visits from the tooth fairy, the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus.

And we've come out of 2010 a very rich family. Because we've got each other.
That makes us some of the luckiest people in the world.

Here's to a healthy and happy 2011!
