Okay, okay I know time always moves the same but my movement in time seemed to enter warp speed in 2014. It was full of family, learning, changes, learning, adjusting, learning, loving, re-learning, laughter and exploring. We went to new places, tried new therapy tools, met new people in new places, and made ever so much progress as a family. (I keep telling Joel, if we can stick together through this- we can tackle ANYTHING God throws at us).
That being said- Joel doesn’t get enough credit. I’m the one that is forever running the boys to appointments, school, church, ABA, this and that. He can’t. He’s off working his shoulders, feet and hands to the bone to provide for our family. I thank him everyday for his labor to keep us in our beautiful home with food on the table and clothes on our backs. He is also a great source of entertainment running the boys crazy outside. And I fell in love with him a little more listening to him read books to the boys before bed. The funny voices, the excitement from the boys. My heart grew.
I love you babe. (Even when I tell you Im gonna smack you with a frying pan đŸ˜‰ ) You’re a wonderful man. We are so lucky to have you.
That being said, I wanted to share some of my favorite photos from 2014.
