Highlights of the year:
We met Brandi, Josh, Ally, and Anya at the Great Wolf Lodge over Spring Break (and took Kenzie along for the ride).
Ryan taught a tie dye class for Kids' College and covered our backyard with tie dye. He also had an awesome scholars' bowl season and took his team to state.
We enjoyed a fabulous vacation in Albuquerque with Grandma Agnes and Grandpa Bob.
Ella traded dance and Girl Scouts for piano and 4-H. She also read up a storm, wrote in her diary like a mad woman, got a long board and pogo stick, put together a number of fabulous outfits, and took Ava to Hays to spend a few days with Grandma and Grandpa.
Emilia discovered that grandparents aren't so bad, after all. Her communication skills also blossomed, allowing her to express her desires to eat candy and watch Dora much more clearly. She continued to enjoy junk food in all forms.
Karen did the Couch to 5K program in the spring and went on to run 2 2-miles races, 6 5-Ks, 2 10Ks, and two half-marathons. She also coerced Brent into running a 10K and took her first motorcycle ride as her end of the deal.
And in December, we welcomed a new niece and nephew, Macy and Max! We can't wait to meet them.
Here's to 2011!
