2009 sure was a crazy one.
I’d like to say, “It sure was a lot of fun!”
David is a fourth year medical student,
Which means, with his time, he is quite prudent!
I’m a photography student and stay-at-home mom.
I’ve tried to manage everything and stay calm!
In Utah, we started the year.
We lived by family, it was nice to be near.
In February, we made our first move of the year . . . Kansas City!
It was beautiful and really, really pretty!
Living in Kansas, we felt so blessed.
I still can’t believe we moved to the Midwest!
We enjoyed living in Kansas, it’s full of nice folks.
To our surprise, we learned we’d be moving to New York.
Shocked, we thought, “Is this a joke?”
We loaded our car with our kids, Paris, and other good things that we needed.
Pulled a little U-haul and off to New York we proceeded.
The kids traveled well. Paris was fine.
There were only a few times I thought I would lose my mind!
We visited some Saba friends on the way in Ohio.
We ate so much food and had so much fun, Oh my! Oh!
We loved living in Rochester. We loved it so much!
Seven short weeks was not long enough!
On our move back to Kansas, we heard some bad news.
We had to move again. We didn’t get to choose!
School regulations made it impossible to stay,
So we packed up the house much to our dismay.
We found ourselves in Utah once again this time,
David went to North Carolina, oh my! Does this even rhyme?
We are all together as a family as we speak,
Which is great for us because we love to kiss our kids’ cheeks!
Who knows what the future holds for us now.
I just know there are more moves for us, HOLY COW!
All things considered we are doing quite well.
In fact, I think my heart might swell.
Aside from the moves that have made us nomads and gypsy’s,
Other exciting things have happened that made us quite tipsy!
First, Dallin calmed down A LOT.
No more a screaming baby, who’d have thought?
Hannah sings, dances, and entertains.
She’s already worn out her first pair of ballet shoes and has a lot of brains.
David is busy, school is crazy.
Bummer for him, there’s no time to be lazy.
I started school at the Academy of Art.
Mastering photography, I’ve learned a few things to impart.
Paris has done a mighty fine job as our only family pet,
We’re not looking for another dog, at least not yet.
2009 was full of surprises,
Four cross country moves, I said a lot of “goodbyes.”
I say, “Bring on the New Year!”
Heck, I’ll even say it with good cheer!
In 2010 I just ask for one thing,
Please don’t tell me we’re moving to Beijing!
