How can it be 2017 already?
Everyone says that the older you get the faster time flies.
It is so true.
Many times we are so busy and working to get the next thing checked off our list, that we don't realize all the small moments are adding up to
An entire year.
So did we actually get anywhere in 2016?
Many times...It doesn't feel like it.
But...looking back...we did accomplish a whole lot.
Our focus for 2016 was to do less and be more.
While we didn't have an exact plan for 2016, we had a general goal and direction. We didn't follow our plan exactly...but we did do a lot less.
Walker and Rain won Supreme Champion Female at the Knox County Fair!
I guess we did do a lot in 2016.
And we accomplished some amazing things.
But, surprisingly, we did a pretty good job of balancing rest and relaxation with accomplishing a lot of what we wanted to do.
We are still learning what is important and what is just filler.
We had times of exterme busyness this year and times with a lot of rest and relaxation.
I think our lives will always be busy...but that is how we roll.
In 2017 we want to do much of the same.
Balancing family time with fun, learning, work and just being.
However...we are still waiting on that real vacation.
Maybe 2017 is our year.
