Farewell 2015

2015 has been a blur.  Even my son noticed that the year went by too fast.
I don't remember all that happened this year, but I can say that nothing too exciting happened either.
I am still at my job, my husband stays home with the kids and works very part-time, and the kids have transitioned from one school year to another. 

Farewell 2015...you have been good to our family.
