Looking back . . .

January - We started this year with a bit of uncertainty as we found out Bryan's contract was ending earlier than expected - so Bryan was shifting jobs again. We met our neighbors - after all living next to one another for 3 years. Zoe had her bike Rodeo

February - Bryan started with his current company in February. He took a paycut in order to have stability and benefits. We had to fill out the paperwork to enroll Zoe in private Pre-K. Tobi and Zoe had Cowboy day and Tobi had her bike rodeo and the girls finished Gymnastics for the winter.

March - Tobers turns 5 and celebrates Cowbow style. We celebrated Easter.

April - We start really noticing the money crunch and start downsizing our spending. Tobi's class went on a field trip to the zoo and Zoe and I went too! The girls started playing the spring season of soccer and I had to stand in as coach one game. Zoe was in a fiesta parade at school and Tobi had Fiesta Day!

May - Bryan's birthday!! And the worst day I've ever experienced at a workplace happened on May 30. Tobi was in a dinosaur parade as a "pink-spotted" pterodactyl

June - The girls were in their dance recitals - cute. Aargh!!! Zoe turned 4.

July - Zac turned 16. We went to Randolph Air Force Base for some Fireworks. Temperatures get really hot!

August - We went on a vacation to the beach - but it was overcast so no tans. Zoe's first day of preschool. Tobi's first day of Kindergarten. Our first day of having to wake up at 6am for the next 15 years - oh boy!!

September - Bryan's first go as Soccer Coach!!! He was brilliant and the girls loved him! Zoe does her numbers in Spanish like noone's business!

October - I ran my first half marathon! Halloween!!!

November - My 31st birthday! Our 6th anniversary! Anton's 4th birthday! Thanksgiving!!! Tobi is really doing excellent at learning to read. One tired Indian
