One interesting thing we did just as we brought in the new year was to get together with families and remember all the things that happened in 2010 and think of things we want to pray for in 2011. For us, 2010 was huge changes. A year ago we didn't know we would move to Alaska, and then we did. We interviewed, packed, traveled across the country, took the ferry for 5 days, visited friends and found ourselved in a new setting living a brand new life. Tim gave homeschooling a try and it didn't seem to fit. The kids started a new school. Jaedyn was challenged by seizures and meds and has overcome. I began going to a Messianic church for similar values and then the kids have begun joining me. At the end of September we bought a house - finally. We started hosting a home group with our other church, and hosting a Bible study with other friends. Jaedyn tried soccer and enjoyed it. Ciara tried basketball and enjoyed it. Josiah and Elly learned to read short words (Elly is much further along). It was a great year.
