Catch up and a GIVE AWAY!

This is the item I am giving away. The above picture is the front and back of the keyring.
Below is the front. I found this on Etsy and had to have it.

Josh and his girlfriend

Ana Claire ready to go.

I am playing catch up on my blog. I use this to journal for my family. It is also a way for our extended family to keep up with us. I can't believe that half the school year is over.
Josh is a senior this year and will graduate in May. He is looking into a few colleges close to home. He told us he wasn't ready to move out. Honestly I was glad to hear that. I am not ready to let go.
Clay is a freshman. He recently got his driver's permit. This is a scary thing. He wants to drive every time we go somewhere.
Ana Claire is in kindergarten this year. We chose to keep her home this year and home school her for many reasons. We have had a great time. Tomorrow we celebrate our 100th day of school. I have several activities planned for her. I hope to take a few photos. I have been a slacker in taking pictures lately.
Now for the GIVE AWAY. Not sure if anyone still reads my blog since I haven't posted in such a long time. If you are checking in and would like to put your name in the hat for the giveaway, please leave me a comment with your name and email address. I will let Ana Claire draw the winners name on Sunday 1/31. That also happens to be our forever family day. I can't believe that day will mark five years that she was placed in my arms.

5 years?!?!? Isn't that amazing! I am glad that you popped in to catch up! I can't believe how long AC's hair is! And really? Josh is graduating?? How cute is his girlfriend? I am not sure WHAT I am going to do when my boys start driving :-) In Iowa, they can get their driver's permits at 14!!! That's in a little over THREE years for me. I already have gray hair!

I love sweet Aurora on your side bar. She is the January calendar girl that sits on my desk & I stare at her sweet face while I am on the computer - she is gorgeous!!

Happy Ana Claire day on Sunday - can't wait to hear more about it!
