2013? Yeesh — I still can’t believe it.
I’ve told you about how I feel about January here. I really like it! So … calm. Kinda.
This January was typical in some ways, and completely atypical in others. For one thing, a wave of sickness flattened us and slowed us down even more than we normally would have slowed down in January — it even hit ME! (The nerve — doesn’t everybody know that mommies don’t get sick?) A super exciting thing for me was a trip to Austin, Texas to attend a workshop given by one of my all time favorite photographers. That’ll be a post on its own. One mild Sunday afternoon soon after that, I took three of the four kids out for an ice cream and stopped for some pictures at a new location I’ve been thinking about — I got some really fun ones, I think. What else … we started the process of rebuilding our bungalow in Breezy — that’s pretty atypical (and I certainly hope it stays that way!)…
We were entertained by a wide range of talents in January. Winter is basketball season, and while I didn’t bring my camera to any games, you’ll have to take my word for it — we went to a lot of them. Kate’s performance in her production of “The Little Mermaid” was truly fabulous. And both Kate and Emmett performed in our town’s annual music festival — Emmett played the bass in the all-Pelham elementary school orchestra, and Kate sung a reprise of “Tomorrow” from her role in Annie a few years ago.
Oh, and my girl turned FOURTEEN. Yeah, fourteen. Fourteen. Still getting used to that number. She’s really coming into her own and it’s a pleasure to watch.
Hope your January was good, too!
