No resolutions please!
Old year, new year. It's still the same bunch of funsters around here and the same pile of laundry in there. Without dwelling too much, there were a lot of good things in 2012. We experienced a lot of firsts: air flight, skiing, violin playing, lemonade stand, school leadership, communion, driving a ute, house building, Anne of Green Gables, potty training and- oh yes- blogging! It was an eclectic mix due to the age range and adventurous spirit of these delicious souls I find myself sharing my life with.
There has been some art made, some calzone baked, some dear friends embraced and a lot of washing folded. 2012 heralds big changes in the Smiley family. There will be two different uniforms as the big boys head off to high school. I will have to IRON! The wee-un has to start kindy two days a week so I can work to pay for the new school. Those long indulgent cuddly one- baby days are going to be dearly missed but I am so grateful that we had them.
I'm not so much one for resolutions although I do write a list in my new diary of things to do like paint the drawers and build a new deck. (That's been on there a few years now.) Otherwise we'll just schlepp along as always, laughing, loving, arguing and learning, enjoying the old and the new with equal vigour. See you in 2012!
