Things that happened in 2018!

2018 was a good year in the Wollenberg household. I think I am most thankful for a mostly healthy year for our family. Zoe has been given a good bill of health from her urologist and doesn't have to go back to get checked for 2-3 years.

Here are some things that happened in 2018 in no specific order.

Zoe turned four years old and Zach turned one. They are both growing like crazy. I feel like they are so grown up already. Sometimes I forget that Zoe is only four. She talks like she's sixteen some days. Today she told Nate and I that two of the Kindergarteners almost kissed. I don't think we're ready for that kind of drama yet. Zach is our climber and daredevil. He is also a charmer and a comedian.

We got to see a lot of our friends over the summer. I especially got to see a lot of my girlfriends from college. It was so nice to catch up. When we lived in McAllen we only could afford to visit family and now we are in the middle of the country so we can drive to see friends and they can come see us. I had my friends, Katie, Shannon and Rachel come to visit. We also took a trip to Michigan to see our seminary friends and visited Cincinnati on the way back. I was able to even see some friends from high school.

Zoe started playing soccer, making me a minivan driving, soccer mom. I embraced it. However, I much preferred when the weather was cold for soccer and not hot. I think indoor sports will be my favorite.

Zach went to his first Cardinals game over the summer. He is clearly already a fan.
Nate completed his second year as the pastor of Trinity in Hoyleton. He is SUPER busy but we still love it here so much! We are so blessed to be here.

We experienced our first Hoyleton Hofbraufest. It was awesome. The weather was perfect. Zoe competed in the princess contest, which meant she got to ride on a float in the parade. Nate lead the way for our church float which was fantastic. I took pictures and hung out with everyone watching.

I started about 700 new hobbies. Okay, it wasn't that many, but it made me busier than usual. I started crafting and selling some of my crafts. I so much enjoy making things for people, but I have never had a busier December. I think I will come up with a better way of doing things next year. I also started a podcast which has been on the back-burner but will be back in 2019!

Nate and I celebrated 8 years of marriage. It has been a crazy ride so far but there's no one I would rather ride the roller coaster of life with.

Nate got together with my in-laws and my mom to get me a trip to see CELINE DION IN CONCERT IN LAS VEGAS!!!!! This will take place in May 2019 but the gift was received in 2018 which pretty much made Christmas 2018 super fabulous. I have been wanting to see Celine in concert since I was a little girl. She is ending her time in Vegas, so the time is now! I was completely surprised and can't wait. I have the best husband. He is making one of my dreams come true and giving me a much needed break from the kids.
Thanks for supporting our family with your love, listening to my podcast and reading this blog! Happy New Year. That's all for now! God is good!

  1. So exciting. December is absolute chaos around here also. Let me know if you figure something else out to help ease it. ����
