Here it is February 2018!
In many ways our lives did skip from February 2017 to '18
with a lot of space in between.
Just like the blog posts.
But more on that
Today finds our family
with their feet firmly in the USA.
There will be/have been some big changes in 2018!
The Nursing Daughter just switched from
the Neuro Unit day shift to ICU nights.
She said she felt like she needed to learn more
and made a change to her life so that she could do it.
When someone asked her if she liked her job,
and she could no longer truthfully answer,
"Yes!", she knew it was time.
The Engineering Son and Engineering Wife
are recreating their lives.
Counting the furry one, they are now a family of four.
In September our family was blessed with this Little AK Peanut.
She was another of our 2017 Tip Top Highs!
While they are new parents he is going to grad school,
and she is engineering at home.
We are waiting to see where that location will be!
The Flyer Son, his Crafty Wife
are moving to Nome
so that he can begin his dream of being a full-time
She has a thriving business of her own that will
move with her,
and finally fulfill it's name, The nome knitter.
Miss Sweetness is excited to be moving to Alaska
(Imaging a 5-yr old singing that emphatically)
The Barrister Son and his Teacher Wife
are looking at some big changes as well.
While they develop their plan,
he is working on historical documentation in the Nome area
and they are keeping up with their two growing boys,
and working at their busy jobs.
The Pilot Man and I learned a lot in 2017.
...still working on that.
On a better note, it is encouraging to see our kids'
willingness to make changes to create the life they want,
and not settle for something else.
One of their favorite show quotes, "They have the fear"
has been passed around a bit :)
It will be exciting to watch the year unfold.....
