This year has been a busy one for the Pillar household. We experienced many changes as the children in the house became young adults and college students by the fall.
This first month of the year was celebrated with a beautiful snowfall....which meant snow cream! Also the first beer brew of the year, both delish!
May was a silly month with little activity worth mentioning, so we decided to be the month of selfies:
June is the month of graduation, we are so proud of our scholar, 3.9 GPA! All the cords and stole represent the honor societies she was inducted into, Theta Mu- Math, English, Science, and the National Honor Society.
July was my beloved husband's birthday and also a busy month for the new graduate as she was the Youth Camp counselor for the Upstream/Downstream Connection camps for the 4th summer.
September was a big month for the family as I got a promotion and went full-time with the company as a member of a direct sales team, DRT, for a major corporation....here's a hint of who that might be.....
November brought us a big surprise when our college freshmen got engaged. Mixed feelings about it so soon, but we have to trust that these two will make the right choices down the road. We will be there for them whatever their path takes them, however. We got to travel to visit my family and meet our newest member, little Ellie. The girls has a blast with her.
December has come and is gone in a few hours. Its hard to believe another year has come and gone, but it has. Our youngest graduated from high school half a year early with a 4.0 GPA, got her driver's license and turned 18!!! Double wow!! Can't believe the changes, empty-nesting will be us very soon now.
