We had between 1 and 4 extra members of our household for 11 of 12 months and a dog that wasn't ours for almost 4 months.
We made 3 trips to Utah, each lasting no more than 2.5 days, including travel. (One 90th birthday, one family reunion, one wedding)
We made one overnight trip to New Mexico. (Another wedding)
We had to skip out on our gardening adventures for the first time in eight years.
Isaac finished kindergarten and moved on to first grade. He discovered he loves creative writing and has natural talent in both music and art.
Jon started preschool and is reading up a storm! He continues to be creative in his engineering feats, which is both exciting and frustrating to his parents.
Kai learned to run early and hasn't slowed down. He (and, as a result, the rest of the family) struggles with a rather intense sleep disorder, very similar to Isaac's at that age. We're all hoping we can achieve a resolution to the problem in 2015.
Robyn has continued to teach piano and voice lessons as time and energy allow. She is grateful for understanding students! She was called as Relief Society 2nd Counselor in June and LOVES the opportunity to serve the women in our ward.
Mark continued to heal from the car accident and has seen complete healing of almost all of his symptoms as of about June. He quit his dead-end job and was unemployed for 7 weeks before landing his current (awesome) job. He also underwent LASIK surgery and is quite happy with the results. He was called as the Elders Quorum 1st Counselor in October and is enjoying his work there. He also serves as the PTA treasurer at Isaac's school - an opportunity which has been nice to have, and will be nice to end as well.
To sum it all up: In 2014, we're exhausted, but happy!
