2010 in Review

I was so busy this year, I did not get Christmas cards and letters out. So I thought I would do a bit of a years in review.

January: I once again helped plan and attended the Wisconsin Youth Unlimited Winter Retreat.

February: I found out I was accepted to Marquette University for their Direct Entry program for Nurse Practitioners.

March: The boys and I took a trip with Calvin's parents to see Calvin's sister and do some wedding planing. The boys got to see their first hockey game.

April: We were able to spend Easter with my parents. We also finally bought a second car after four and a half years of marriage and having only one vehicle. We got a 2010 Toyota Corolla and I love it.

May: We started off the month celebrating Matthias' third birthday. I still can't believe how big he is.  I was the matron of honor in my sister-in-law's wedding and Matthias was the Flower Boy. The boys (along with my mother- and father-in-law) were involved in a car accident, but thankfully injuries were very minor. 

June: I started the DE program at Marquette and our lives got very busy. We all adjusted well. At the end of June, a bad storm brought a neighbor's tree down on to our property. We were without power for a couple of days and had a minor gas leaked and a big mess to clean up, but we were blessed that the damage was not severe.

July: Another busy month. Our PT Cruiser got to the point that it needed to be replaced (much to our budget's dismay), so we bought a 2008 Chrysler Town and Country.  Calvin loves his mini-van! We also had another visit from Calvin's parents, sister and her new husband. 

August: I successfully finished up the summer semester and we took a great vacation to Branson, MO.  Unfortunately, while Calvin and I were out for dinner for our Anniversary, someone hit our van in the parking lot and left without a note or anything. That meant yet another insurance claim! I also had my wisdom teeth out. (Ouch)

September: I started Fall semester. We also went to my uncle's cabin for Labor Day, which was a nice break.

October: We were blessed to again have a visit from Calvin's parents visit (they live far away, so visits are always a treat).  We also had a visit from some dear friends who moved away.

November: We celebrated Ezra's second birthday. My baby is such a big little boy and I can't believe it.

December: I finished another semester of school and am now halfway done with Phase 1 of my program.  We flew out to Alberta for Christmas with his whole family. It was a great time! Now we are having a weekend with my family. 

So over all, it was a pretty good year and we were blessed, especially with safety.  I am excited for the New Year and wish you all a blessed New Year!

  1. Loved reading this. I think I might have to adopt a similar style letter to send out with my birth announcements/Christmas/New Years cards.... maybe I'll just skip the Christmas/New Years part on them lol
