2012: Our year in pictures
We have spent many hours over the past year watching Danielle play volleyball. She’s a great middle.
I survived our daughter’s first homecoming and had SO much fun making her mum! Crafty momma….
Christian scoffs at our dorkiness as we take a picture of him at his first apartment. Campus housing!
Packing up for Christian to go to his first apartment on campus
I learned to play ukulele this spring!
We (meaning me and unsuspecting bystanders in our home) started eating a plant-based diet this November to improve my health.
Our mantle represents a simple and wonderful Christmas season. It was our first Christmas day without Christian and we missed him. He’s all grown up!
Going to Christmas party with my honey.
We spent a day at the farm with our good friends enjoying the beauty in nature. Good to escape suburban concrete jungle.
A beautiful sunrise view from our backyard. Celebrating beauty in the little things has been a theme for a difficult year medically!

Are you impressed? Just a little?? Hosted a weekly craft and Bible study time with junior high girls. This is one of our projects.
Our daughter is smitten with this beautiful girl at Kibera slum in Kenya. This summer she decided for certain that she’ll be a missionary doctor in Africa.
I can’t get enough of these beautiful Kenyan kids. A huge interest and new hobby this year is photography.
2012 was a huge year of transition for our family. Our milestones this year represent huge change. The changes are a joy, and yet there’s a little sadness about them.
Our son moved away from home for the first time to live in campus housing at his college. We are excited for him and proud of him!
Our daughter started high school at our local public school after homeschooling for several years. She really likes it on all fronts: academically, socially, and athletically. (How’s that for lots of -ly words!)
I’ve been struggling with some medical issues and am learning to navigate this new course. This has caused me to really evaluate what I believe about the sovereignty of God and suffering. My conclusion is that God is always sovereign, even in our suffering.
My husband is the most consistent person that I know; no change there! Yea!! He’s there through thick and thin (metaphorically and literally) and a great source of comfort and companionship. Besides that, he laughs at most of my jokes!
The one constant, unchanging thing in our lives this year is God. He is unmovable, unshakeable, and I don’t know how I’d get through life without Him.
