I'm linking up with my bloggy friends to go over 2014. What a year it has been. Here are some things about me.
2014 was literally one of the hardest in my life. As many long term readers of my blog know, my husband had three major surgeries over the past year. He was in critical care twice, needed a blood transfusion and is still working on the road to recovery. He may still need more surgery and each day is a struggle. I've had to be a nurse to him while working two jobs and still managing to get the children where they need to go.
My goal for the coming year is to enjoy every moment. Even the little ones. You never when life is going to throw you a curve ball. We have to celebrate all the small accomplishments and use them to get us through the rough times.
My favorite memory from 2014 is when we went down to Detroit for the winter classic. My youngest was in the winter classic tournament and it included tickets to the winter classic game. The kids came in second in the tournament and we spent the New Year in a hotel. The kids had a fabulous time and my hubby felt well enough to come with us. While we were in Detroit, I also got to meet up with my bloggy buddy Maria from KinderCraze. It was one of the highlights of the trip.
I think this is the only family shot we took this year. This was taken just before Jakob's grade 8 graduation.
My favorite blog post was the one on how I make my sight word stones. They are so easy to make and the kids love using them.
Guardians of the Galaxy was one of my favourites this year. It was funny and really good for both kids and adults. My boys enjoyed posing with the display.
I would have to say my jeans. I love my jeans and would wear them everyday if I could.
So very often the children I teach are misjudged in their abilities. I work very hard everyday to change that perception.
