Has it been a whole year already? I know everyone always says it, but where has the time gone?
We started off 2013 with Stephen's third birthday. The superhero obsession had begun around Halloween 2012, but his birthday party was a good excuse to go crazy with it. Stephen began loving Thor, then moved on to Iron Man, and now considers himself a fan of basically every superhero ever invented.
In February, we spent a lot of time at the park in between having a great babysitter come and watch the boys while I worked and Christian was in school.
In March, I turned 27!
In April, we spent some time at a little fair near my parents' house and also celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary.
In May, Cohen turned two and we enjoyed all the nice weather!
In June, we spent the summer enjoying more time as a family... including in the kitchen.
In August we took our yearly trip to the beach. Christian also started a new job as music director at our church.
September was a big month. The boys started going to preschool three days a week, and I started working full-time.
Halloween only exacerbated the superhero obsession. Cohen became a full-fledged Batman fan, which continued well through the end of the year.
The weather was unseasonably warm this winter, so even in November we were spending a lot of time outside.
The year ended with Christmas and a whole lot more superhero stuff. Christian also graduated from seminary, an accomplishment 3.5 years in the making!
What a blessing this year has been! So many changes, but the Lord has seen our family through them all, large and small. We look forward to experiencing grace upon grace in 2014.
Happy New Year from the Crouches!
