So this is what's been going on last year year in the Wilderness family , Here it is in a nutshell.
We started the year off with five kids living at home. Then in June Mylissa started working in Alaska at the same summer resort that our oldest daughter Kadie worked when she was a teenager Clover Pass. She is now living with our oldest daughter Kadie in Alaska where she is happy working at target and preparing to become a flight attendant.
In October Robbie left the nest to serve a two-year mission in Arizona. We are so proud of them he is such an amazing young man and will do good work in the mission field. We greatly miss his presence in our home.
Ben, Maddie and Garrett are the only ones left at home. Benny is now in middle school. He still the spoiled baby he is happy and living a carefree life. We love them to death he's our little piece of sunshine.
Madeline is our sassy fun happy high schooler. I seriously cannot believe she's in ninth grade. She's our only girl living at home. It's weird but I love it she is very girly and loves to expand her wardrobe by stealing my clothes.
Garrett is a junior in high school and drives now he is also taking college courses to become a car technician. I think that's the right term. I guess they are no longer are called mechanics because everything is computerized and they have to learn so much more than just the mechanical workings of the car. He is thriving in his college courses and is the top student in his class. I think Robby's leaving has been a little hard on him they have been best friends since the day he was born.
Rochelle is living in Oregon with her son and my sweet grandson Carroll Who has the most beautiful head of hair on the planet. Rochelle keeps getting pressure to cut his hair but I vote no no no it's so beautiful. They are both doing well and enjoying all Oregon has to offer them. Rochelle is a great mom she's doing a great job raising Carroll and teaching him all about life and all it's beauties.
Kadie and Dan and there sweet boys Rutledge and Boone look like A family in a magazine ad. They are happy and doing well in Alaska Kadie is an amazing mom and Dan amazing dad. Boone an Rutland are active little boys before long they will be bigger than their mom.
Dale and I are doing great we are still plugging along at our store wilderness treasures that keeps growing and becoming bigger and better. Dale quit his job at the surgery center now works full-time at the store we have two employees two years ago I never thought the Store would be where it is today and it's wonderful.
We celebrated 25 years of marriage in February we went to Vegas it was super fun!
Last but not least I have to share about our little stony dog. After all he's the reason I started blogging again. Can't believe he's been apart of family for two years. We bought him for kids but he quickly became my dog not that I wanted it that way that just the way it happened. I love this silly Chihuahua dog almost as much is my kids.
So there you have it our year kind of been a nutshell.
