One month into the new year, and every day I have done something new. This is a year of new.
  • Located and visited an excellent Aldi in my new nearest-big-town. Highlight of my month.
  • Ate at a local cafe that seems to be the place where everybody knows everybody in my new little town.
  • Visited two churches I had never been to before.
  • Started a new workout plan. It's a killer.
  • The boys ate at a buffet for the first time. Highlight of their month.
  • Got new shoes to run on my new road.
  • Visited a nature center and bought bird field guides for my new state.
  • Got a new iPhone so I could have more reliable internet in my new house.
  • Made several new friends, many of which are homeschoolers.
  • Went on a date with The Husband while the kids stayed with a new babysitter.
  • Started a new spelling program (Spelling Power. Love it.) in a new semester of 1st grade.
  • Got new library cards.
  • Made appointments with a new doctor and a new orthodontist.
"New" will probably be my theme for the rest of this year, and "new" usually is not my forte. However, I have actually enjoyed most of these new experiences so far. His grace is sufficient.

Second month of my "new year," here I come!

Good for you!! I am glad you like Spelling Power. I am extremely impressed with the date and new babysitter. That is always a tough one. Keep up the good work!

I think you've gotten to know your new area in one month more than I have in 7 years. Is it still a new area after 7 years? hmmm.. :-)

Glad to know that you are adapting to all this "new" stuff so well.
We love and miss you,
