A Year in Brief (the dry version)

As many of you know, this year has been one of changes.

In May of this year, I finished up my teaching career at Veritas Academy and began teaching private voice and piano lessons full-time. I did this so that I could have flexibility to take care of my family in GA, if needed (little did I know what a blessing this intuition would be).

In June, Ethan and I went on a two-week trip out west. It was amazing! Who else could say that they were chased by a grizzly bear, drove through a tornado and slept in the back of their truck in a Wal-Mart parking lot?

At the same time, we were in the process of buying our dream house. Stopping at every available Staples in the middle of Montana, Wyoming, North and South Dakota, and filling out more paperwork.

Finally, at the end of July, with all of the paperwork finished, and the mountains of red tape wrent asunder, we bought the house. A few days later, I got the call that Mom had passed away.

In September, I decided at the last minute to enter in a half-marathon. This was the first time that I had ever run 13.whatever miles. The longest I had run before was 10 miles but boredom always seemed to set in at around 6 miles. I’ve never run any type of race before because I was always embarrassed to run with other people, so this was a milestone for me (even though my time was nothing to brag about).

In October, we were finally able to move into our new house (with the help of many wonderful friends). Also, in October, I finally wrote down three of my songs with lyrics. This too is a new step for me.

At the end of November, Ethan and Math-U-See moved to a new warehouse (big deal–no really, it was a big deal).

So as this year quickly comes to a close, I look back very thankful for all my wonderful friends and family and to God for his abundant grace. Thank you.
