Recap of 2017

Every year I write a recap reflecting the past year.

Check out previous years below.

2016 // 2015 // 2014 // 2013 // 2012

It’s been quite the year! We started the year with Sarah’s second set of ear tubes and adenoids removal surgery. Then Sharon and Jacob were walking in a cross walk and got hit by a car.  Hubby rounded out our hospital visits with an emergency spine fusion surgery for a ruptured disc. It was a tough first half of the year, but we are thankful to have family and friends who were there for us.

Sarah is 6 years old and is in 1st grade. Sarah can now read chapter books! It’s so fun listening to her sound out store signs, trucks and road signs. We now have to find other ways to communicate while the kids are around.

Jacob is 2 years old and attends a two-day co-op mommy and me program with me. He also attends a weekly gymnastics class and can do a forward roll at any given moment.

Mama Chit Chat recently celebrated it’s 5th birthday! I’ve gotten to review a lot of fun things with 16 sponsor opportunities this year.
