This was the year where everybody just shot up, there was a lot of growing and growing up, for all of us… I think it was the year that I paused for a moment and noticed just how the whole gang seems to be so much bigger than a collection of little people they once were. They are all emerging into a gang of note. And as usual the over-riding love we have for our children has continue to surprise me… it surprised me as each of them were born and it continues to surprise me … as they grow up and emerge into crazy fun people that I just want to hang around and spend time with all day.

We read through copious amounts of books… The mental list of books that I really wanted to read to my kids before they are all grown up and gone was vast and between me and audible we conquered a lot of it. Otherwise, we hiked higher and further than ever before… exploring further afield than the mountain in our back yard. Goals, we had a few and conquered them… my biggest goal for the year was REST… and I did. I took days off, I blogged a little less, I read a lot more and I breathed more deeply…

And for the Hoods…
