A note from the writers

Blogger seems to be having some trouble with its videos. They've been uploaded correctly and will run sometimes. If you can't see them now, come back another time and try again. It's totally a game of chance to get them to run. If anyone out there has a fix, I'd love to hear about it. Thanks!

A New Year: Inspired

Here we are starting a new year. As it happens, tomorrow is this blog's one year anniversary. Couldn't start a new blogging year without a new post!

2010 will be a year of creativity for this family as we learn lots of new things and take on new challenges. Here's a little glance at what we're going to be up to....

~Ava is continuing to grow in leaps and bounds and has most recently taken on the challenge of potty learning. She's doing a fantastic job (lots of stamps on the potty chart!) and somehow manages to squeeze in some book reading and imaginary play with all the trips to the bathroom.

~After so much success with Ava's kitchen and easel (a glance at the finished kitchen project below), Matt has decided to leave his car's side of the garage set up as a woodshop. Several projects are already in the queue for the coming year. A bed and dresser for Ava, and a wine cork case for me are among the items on the list. He's also got several digital media projects planned as we've found that we take quite a lot of photos and video. :-) Matt's set an ambitious visitation schedule to nearby national parks for the family, so we'll all be busy on weekends too!
~I'm heading into my final semester of my masters program and am excited to begin working on my final project. Work should prove to be interesting, as well, as we look toward the exciting launch of our new center.

As we look forward, 2010 looks to be a year of opportunity, challenge, and creativity in so many areas of our lives. We're looking forward to rolling up our sleeves...
...and, clearly, we're not afraid to get messy in the process. :-)

Here's to a new year and the many adventures that will fill it!
