Gosh...it's been 5 years since I last wrote something. How is that even possible. Oh yes, life has gotten in the way. A big move, a house build, 2 additional daughters. I could go on, but it doesn't really matter. Everyone has busy lives, they don't want to read about ours.
I have decided in the past week though to embrace social media. Seems the only wasy people communicate anymore is through electronic devices. I'm now part of not only the Facebook world, but also the Twitter world and the Instagram world. It's a learning process. If I had to guess, my 6.5 year old is probably more proficient at any of them, even though she has never actually done them, but I am going to give it a go! I am a stay at home mom, in small town southern Minnesota. I have time to update people on our mundane lives.
Some highlights of the past five years...
**2010: moved from the frozen tundra of Duluth, Mn all the way to Fairmont, MN. Small farm town 10 miles from the IA border. Matt grew up here. I grew up 50 miles north of here. It was time to return to our roots.
**2011: We welcomed daughter +2 into the world. She came in quick and has been on the go ever since! Sophia is our sweet and stubborn one!
**2012: Audrey joined our family, making it complete. She is our spitfire and we already dread all the trouble she is potentially going to get into.
*2013: Ironically nothing stands out. I am positive we must have highlights, but I am drawing a blank.
**2014: Allie entered kindergarten. As I write this, the school year is coming to a close. Sad that she is growing up so fast but love watching her evolve! Matt decided to become volunteer fire fighter too. On top of his 9-5 job and farming, we don't see much of him!
Our lives in a nutshell. We are crazy busy. We have our ups and downs. But we are family, and we wouldn't have it any other way.
Stay tuned for updates!
