Hello 2012!

Okay, so I'm 14 days past due with that welcome but hey, better late than never, right?

It's funny how the things that challenge you end up making you stronger in the end. 2011 was definitely a challenging year in many regards. We took a couple financial hits, we were all very excited for Bubby to enter Pre-Kindergarten but that brought up a whole list of...concerns...that we were not aware of (more on that in a different post), and we continued to try and settle in to our not-so-new lives in Georgia.

At the end of the year, we continued to feel the effects of the financial hits but I began the exciting adventure of opening my own business. We took Bubby out of the Georgia Public Pre-K program and switched him to a private Pre-K instead. He is FLOURISHING and we couldn't be more pleased. And as far as the settling in to Georgia, one of our biggest struggles was finding a church home and I do believe that search is finally over!

2011 gave us PLENTY of wonderful memories to hold on to as well, like...

Having an Easter Egg Hunt, but with Panda Bears:

Hugging Daddy as he swam with sharks:

and making an RV trip to Hillsborough River State Park in FL
to meet up with my sister and her family:

And now I'm suddenly remembering one of the reasons why I haven't posted in so long. It takes f.o.r.e.v.e.r. to upload photos for some reason! Ah well, there's much more to share but unfortunately I need to run out. Please stop back by for Part 2 of this post, and leave a comment here, there, or on both! I'd love to say hello to you also!


  1. Karyn,
    I just told Kellie she needs to start blogging again too! I think God gives us struggles so he can watch us grow. I am praying for a wonderful year for you all.

  2. Karyn, thank you for my post on our blog. Can't wait to meet you all too! Where in Ga are you all?
