New Year--big change!

Happy New Year!  We had a very busy 2 weeks over Christmas.  We traveled to Fort Worth, Texas to visit my parents and then headed to Colorado Springs to look for a place to live.  Colorado will be our new home in just over a month!  We were in awe of the beauty of Colorado Springs.  We were able to find a house to rent for the 2 or so years that we will be stationed there.  We are very thankful that it all works out!  We have been blessed to be near the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean on the island of Newport, Rhode Island for the past year.  Being a military family has its perks.  We can show our kids many parts of our beautiful nation.  Hopefully, we will be able to show them more of the world before my husband retires from the Army in the next 7 years!  The freedom to explore while homeschooling is also such a bonus to our lives.  Growing up with working parents in Iowa, I never got to see much other than when we visited relatives in Texas.  Who knew I'd grow up to see so much and I'm glad to share it with our children and husband.  Here's to our new adventure in 2012!
