I can’t believe 2016 is coming to a close already. It has really been a crazy ride this year. It started off super high with the postive pregnancy test last Christmas. Then took a plumeting dump in February when we found out that there was no baby.
We have been active and out with out Scouting groups. David is out every other month camping with the boys. He has really fallen into Scouting after I dragged him down with me last year.
This summer we took a trip out east to see David’s dad. I got to see my sister Crystal. The big event of the trip was David’s younger brother, Grant’s, baptism. We had a family reunion on my side in Calgary. Took a trip to the Royal Tyrell Museum with the kids. It was quite the summer trip.
September brought a change in distance learning schools for us. We thought we would give our local school a try and see how it went. C started kindergarten, A is in grade 3 and D is grade 5 now. I can’t believe how fast the time is going. It is sure that there will be more changes on the school front next year.
Then when we think life can’t get anymore crazy. I am pregnant again. We found out in August but kept things pretty quiet. We did blood tests and ultrasounds to make sure things were looking good before we got too excited this time. It looks like we will have #5 join us in April 2017
We are very excited. And no we don’t know if it will be a boy or a girl. From the ultrasound though, it looks like we are having a beautiful perfect baby.
Christmas was very low key this year. We decided to stay home and enjoy our first Christmas in our new house. We were so fortunate to be able to buy out here. The unforunate relaity of our local real estate is that it is very expensive.
All in all I think we have had a good year and I am excited to see what 2017 is going to bring us.
