Looking back at the year, high lights would be:
JANUARY ~ boys turning 12 and 9, friends over for a party, making a tye dye cake
FEBRUARY ~ Thing One earned his green belt in Tae Kwon Doe, Valentines Day Party with our co-op group at a bounce house (big bouncy things, indoors!), Kevin and I celebrated 15 years of marriage
MARCH ~ finally saw the Cherry Blossoms in Washington, D.C. after living in the area most of my life; Thing One learned to ride a two wheeler; Thing Two began the Spring season of kid pitch baseball
APRIL ~ celebrated Easter at our church home of Burke Community Church and had a friend and her daughters over for dinner after; boys continued to be busy with baseball, TKD, scouts and life; we began wrapping up the school year.

JUNE ~ baseball winding down; Thing One earned his advanced green belt in TKD
JULY ~ biggest events are Boy Scout Camp and VBS! All three guys are in the same group this year. Dad leading, Thing One assisting, and Thing Two's group! I was off with the wee little one's this year.
AUGUST ~ brought the start of a new school year with a 7th grader and a 4th grader; there was a trip to Florida (by van even!);
SEPTEMBER ~ fun ways to celebrate back to school for the public schools, this year we all went out for lunch in Parent 1, Parent 2, Thing 1 and Thing 2 shirts; fall ball is in full swing, scouts is still going strong

NOVEMBER ~ end of the season for baseball; youth retreat for Thing One; Thanksgiving at home; ending of an era - reading the Hardy Boy series, all 58 of them;
DECEMBER ~ brought bronchitis for me and lighter school for the boys; lots of extra movies, books, and mad libs loosely tied to Christmas; staying home on the 24th and 25th ~ first time since Kevin and I have been together; a lot of time goofing off and hanging out; wrapping up 2012 with the boys and a couple of their friends.
And with as long as it took to write this post, there is about 4 hours 20 minutes lefts.
