I feel like 2017 flew by – does anybody else feel that way? Looking back over the year, I can’t believe all that happened – all the joys, tears, plans and surprises!
Here are the highlights of the Shaver Crew’s 2017
We lost Roxie to a car 😦 But we added Kylo and Rey to our family
Aaron and I attended our church’s marriage conference for the first time
We experienced our first rodeo
Aaron got a job at a radio station
Aaron and I launched our business – Shaver Closet
We finished our 2nd semester of Highlands College
I celebrated my first official Mother’s Day
We visited Seattle (it was Rylie’s first time visiting and it was her first time on a plane too!)
We celebrated Aaron’s first official Father’s Day
We celebrated 3 years of marriage
We rescued Chewy (and eventually let him go to a good home 😊 )
I served Summer Blast and Motion, and we did Serve Day as a family
We found out we were expecting baby #2
I started a full time job (& Aaron became a full time stay-at-home Dad)
I also started my Usborne Books business
I attended our church’s ReCreate Women’s Conference
I started doing bump updates again (week 4 – week 26)
Aaron and I went on mission trip to Newnan, GA
We found out we were having another baby girl!
Kylo and Rey turned 1 year old
Rylie turned 1 year old
We finished our 3rd semester of Highlands College
We purchased our very first home
We celebrated Christmas
I think the biggest thing God taught me this year was that He is faithful! He knows the deep desires of our hearts, but ultimately, He gives us what we need (not necessarily what we want) and what will grow us closer to Him.
There is no doubt in my mind that 2018 will be a great year as well – full of more joys and learning experiences.
