This, That, and Everything in Between: January 2018
Since February has arrived, really?!, it is time to recap our January 2018 adventures.
We didn’t have a crazy month but we had some fun times.
We unfortunately started the month by saying goodbye to some of our really good friends.
They are a fellow military family so saying goodbye or “see you later” is far too often for us but it is still a sad day especially when they become such good friends that really are more like family. Their daughter and Miss S were pretty much best friends so they definitely miss each other as well! Hopefully we will see them again soon!
The girls started gymnastics again at the beginning of the month and this time they actually get to be in class together. They both love it and wish they could go more than once a week.
On January 6th, Travis and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary. We had a fun night planned but had to cancel it as I came down with the same virus Miss S had right before the new year so I was not up to going out. In fact, I am shocked I am actually sitting up on the couch even for this picture because I was pretty much sleeping for 2 days straight fighting a high fever.
We picked up a new foster baby and had her for the rest of the month. She was CRAZY shy and needed some big time help with socializing her. Slowly but surely she got more comfortable with us and enjoyed everyone in the house. We just took her back this past weekend to get adopted and I am happy to say that she already has a permanent home! YAY!
We took a family day trip back to Wisconsin Dells to play at an indoor amusement park/fun zone type place and dinner. The girls had a lot of fun!
Before our fun day, we shopped at the local outlet mall and Miss S just HAD to get this giant Rapunzel wig. This girl LOVES wigs and playing dress up so she was so darn excited to wear it once we got home and needless to say, she has worn it a ton since!
Toward the end of the month, Travis and I snuck away for a fun night in Madison with some friends for dinner and an acapella competition at UW. It was such a fun night just hanging out with friends and having a night away from the girls.
We’ve had a good amount of snow this winter. It snows then has been melting but we’ve had crazy temps which means the lake by our house is good and frozen. There has been plenty of folks out on it ice fishing so we thought we’d so and have a little fun and walk around on it as well. After a little cruise on the lake, we went back to the park near it and played on the frozen puddles in the grass. We broke up some of the ice and Travis made an ice palace for the girl’s ponies that they brought with us.
And lastly a pretty big thing happened this month… We found out that Travis was selected to be promoted to Major which also means that we will likely be moving this year at some point. We should know more on that by the end of this month. I am very proud of him and thrilled that he is being recognized for all his hard work!
Stay tuned for our February adventures!
