Goodbye 2009, hello 2010!

What a year we’ve had in Chez E. Nowhere!

A new school year was begun…
Kindergarten for Isaac
waiting for the bus on day 1
and a new year with new decorations for me (I did pandas this year. I like pandas…I promise, a photo of my door later…)

We had our first foray into team sports
Hello Soccer!

and found that the truly beloved sport in our house is hockey.
Both watching
Staring down the players during warm ups
 a shot I missed taking for so long, but love being able to take again

Learning to play
on skates for the first time

and dreaming of playing one position in the future.
 Goalie. Seriously? No, not a forward or a wing...a GOALIE. Yesh.

I spent some time learning to be a good sports parent. Yes, it is a learned behavior. Basically for me, it meant seeing all of the people who did it wrong, and remembering how I hated some of the things I saw as a kid and not repeating those things. It also meant advocating for my child when he was being ignored because of his special needs.

We had some fiascos (but when don’t we in this house. I think if I didn’t go a week without a good one, It wouldn’t be me.)
like this one:
 Remember me? The shredded backpack?

and we had the broken bed fiasco.

Both had decent endings, but they were fiascos none the less.

I went from pulling coffee at the ‘bux to game geeking…and even did a store transfer.

And I have no lack of material of wackjob people now that I’m geeking. Seriously.

And we had our first school pageant. My kid? He’s the “turkey catcher” in the center in the overalls. That’s what he called being a Pilgrim.
Note the turkey catcher...wacky kid.

And as with every year, there are highs and lows and things that are all inbetween. But it is what makes up our year.

Here’s to a great 2010, with new adventures, fun, challenges and a lot more hockey.

    Not only do we need to schedule a New Moon girls night out . . . perhaps a hockey one too!
