2017 in Review

 As 2017 comes to an end, I thought now would be as good a time as any to look back and remember what this year brought. Some good, some ok and some great... 2017 was a year of new things, adventures and growing together as a family through thick & thin. We were blessed this year with a promotion for JC, two job changes for me, the kids enjoyed time with cousins, Grandparents and making s'mores around the campfire! Kylie started preschool in September and Micah started "school" in December as mommy started her new position as the Head Teacher in the infant room in the new child care center expansion of Kylie's preschool! We added a new member to the family (Miss. Poppy) our sweet 4.5 month old golden retriever puppy in October! And of course the biggest surprise of the year was when daddy surprised mommy with a new car in November (an early Christmas present)  We are very thankful and feel very blessed for what we were given this past year, we are looking forward to more time as a family this coming year and actually taking a vacation together this summer!! I pray that this new year will bring many blessings to you my friends!! Happy New Year from the Barber clan, thank you for being part of our lives! We look forward to sharing this next year and our adventures with you!

Our Summer Adventures.

Now that it is September (how is summer over?!) I thought I would share some pics from our summer! We spent a lot of time this summer close to home exploring our cute little town, with me working a lot less hours this summer I was able to spend all day with my kids and we spent a lot of time together as a family which I absolutely loved!
