Wow!!! Where did 2008 go??? I know, I know...we always say the same thing at the end of the year and beginning of a new one. But, omg this year just flew by.
That Kid is already half way thru his senior year of high school and is starting to seriously think about college or what he's going to do next fall. I remember starting kindergarten with him in his bedroom, sitting at a little table and chair working on phonics and his numbers. He was so happy to finally be able to read those little readers and proudly did so every night with dad.
That Other Kid is now 5 years old...how did that happen?? just yesterday he was a itty bitty baby who did nothing but cry and eat. Now he's shopping for his own stuff with his own Christmas/birthday money! Btw, he bought a Wii video game and the Shark Tales movie and is so happy he has $3.81 left over to hide from his big brother!
We had a good year, with the trials of normal family life. We all grew up a little and learned new things while going through daily life. I pray that this year we will be better examples to the world around us and that we will be MUCH HEALTHIER than last year!
