2: January & February | Caleb and Sabrine had fun activities at school. Caleb went snowshoeing and Sabrine learned some dances. We put our house on the market so we went on lots of walks while people looked at it. Luckily it was a mild winter so hanging out outside wasn't too bad! | Thane had his baby blessing in February. Lots of family came to it. Gma Sharleen & Gpa Jim, Gpa Anderson & Pam, Gma Gooch, Uncle Adam and Aunt Michelle all came. Thane is a very good baby and very happy. | Violet Erickson, Sabrine, Amy E., Noah E., Caleb, Ava

Ava had been looking at a unicorn at Build-a-Bear for a year. Then they told us they were retiring it. She got the very last one in the store!! Dad got new powertools to start work on the new house for his birthday. | We closed on our new house in March! It was a bank repo and there was a whole lot unfinished in it.

4: April | e a s t e r | Easter came in a blur since we were so busy getting ready to move. We DID make time to dye eggs though! Mom took the kids to an Easter Egg hunt. It was freezing cold! Luckily the free cotton candy and face painting made up for the cold weather. Dad was busy packing at home with Thane.
5: May | Moving Day came 2 weeks earlier than planned. It was a horrible, terrible, exhausting move. Dad's arms hurt so bad from carrying heavy things. Brother Erickson stayed through the entire move - what a friend! Ava stopped preschool a month early and said goodbye to Miss Tiff, Miss Jean and Miss Lora. Then we said a sad good bye to 710 S. McMillan. The hardest part of moving is leaving our next door friends Debbie Whaley and Helen Berg. We know we won't see them as much anymore. Dad's brother Mike got married one day after we moved so we flew to Colorado. We had a great time with family and played and laughed with cousins. | Caleb, James, Troy, Chad, Aspen, Ava, Epiphany, Sabrine | LeeAnn, Adam, Aaron, Kevin, Jared, Kim, Mike, Jim Gooch

Sabrine started 2nd grade with Mrs. Bockstruck and Caleb started 4th grade with Mr Santora. They all go to Summit School. Summit doesn't have buses so we have to carpool. Sabrine went to Ables (the gifted class) for the first time. She made a Veggie Mobile. Hers went the 2nd farthest in the race! We went to Valleyfest as usual and the kids caught their fish like they do every year. Mom took the girls and Thane to go pick grapes with her friends. Then she made over 60 quarts of grape juice! | September
