Goodbye, 2019!

2019 was another wonderful year. Carter completed kindergarten and started 1st grade. Elise completed 3 year old preschool and moved upstairs to the "big kid" preschool class. I stayed in my same 3 year old classroom which was nice. As I have every year since 2016, I was reminded of how the Goodbye, 2015! post was the last one I wrote before Jeremy's accident. Thinking of that each year is another reminder to be thankful for everything we have, most of all those we love! I'm excited to look back over a year full of love and look forward to another year full of adventures. My photo recap from last year can be found here, 2017 here, 2016 here, 2015 here, 2014 here, and 2013 here. Here's a little snapshot of our 2019 through pictures.
