Chasing away the tumbleweeds around here to farewell the year. 2012 was a big year here at Chez Thommo, full of lots of fun.
Jack started kinder and loved it, his teachers were so wonderful and we’re thrilled that they will be Lew’s teachers next year. Lew is quite shy so having teachers and an environment he is familiar with will hopefully help his transition to kinder be a smooth one.
The highlight of the year was definitely our epic road trip to Queensland, we survived it and loved (almost) every minute. We were lucky enough to go on a second holiday in August with dear friends, getting away with the 4 kids can be hard work but it’s so much fun!
Jack turned 5, Lew 4 and Oliver and Sebastian are now 2. This year the twins have learned to walk, then run and climb; Sebastian’s confidence has grown hugely as his vocabulary and both are cheeky as anything. All of them are wonderful friends, plenty of fights but lots of love and playing too. I’m very blessed with 4 very affectionate little fellows who love hugs and kisses.
2012 saw us struggle with choosing a school for Jack next year. We chose one, enrolled him and then changed our minds. He’s all set to head off now and fingers crossed we’ve made the right choice, only 4 weeks until he starts now, eep!
We had plenty of illnesses, with colds and tummy bugs tag teaming us through winter, but if that’s the worst illness we have to deal with then we are blessed. We farewelled Thommo’s beautiful nanna.
2012 was mostly a wonderful year for us and 2013 is shaping up to be a year of new beginnings. I hope the new year brings you and yours health and happiness. Thank you for joining me this year and reading my ramblings, I look forward to sharing all that 2013 brings.
