Year in Review ~ 2009

A couple of years ago, I read an End of the Year post over at Stepping on Legos and loved the idea behind it. Basically, you take the first sentence from the first blog entry of each of the twelve months of the previous year. (Phew... that was a LOT of "of's" in that last sentence!) I have done this for the last three years... since Isabel came home. It's a fun way to recap the year succinctly. And so... here is this past year's summation.


January ~ A trip to Saint Augustine last night included a visit to Winter Wonderland, where Isabel and I explored an elf village, walked through a candy cane forest, watched folks speeding down a double two-story ice luge, and experienced out first ice skating foray together.

February ~ Isabel changed preschools and her verbal skills have taken off exponentially

March ~ Spring break… how I have longed for your arrival.

April ~ So I decided the best place to decorate the eggs would be outside.

May ~ We were able to get together with some friends for a fun night outside watching Finding Nemo.

June ~ Another night of great laughter, good wine and wonderful friends… with three (daringly courageous) newbies that joined us.

July ~ What a whirlwind of a trip this has been.

August ~ When I bought this house five years ago, I knew immediately which bedroom was going to be mine and which was going to be Isabel’s.

September ~ Seven little girls, plus assorted dancewear and footwear and one dance teacher equals an hour of fun.

October ~ What a great day.

November ~ As a rule, I don’t let Isabel have a lot of candy.

December ~ Three years ago today, I sat in my classroom and watched the face of my long-awaited daughter appeared on the computer screen.
