‘Tis the season for the annual holiday update!

Family Picture 2011
20011 has been a relatively quiet year for the Burson clan.
 
Gracie is 7 and in 2nd grade now.  She enjoys karate, dancing, singing, soccer, 4H, and anything else she can get involved in!  She’s a good student who works hard and is achieving everything she should at her age.  She’s also a good helper around the house and in the yard. She has enthusiasm in everything she does and is a good friend and encouragement to those around her.

Ian will be 6 in just 19 days!  He’s also an active kid and enjoys 4H, soccer, and baseball.  He’s a very studious kindergartener and will actually be starting some 1st grade work after the holidays.  He is a sweet sensitive boy who has found his sense of humor and keeps us laughing with his comedic timing and sarcasm.
 
James is about to begin his 9th year with his company.  He was invited into a leadership program there this year which was a great learning experience and should look nice on his resume.  He’s been working hard to expand his career in this rather tough market.  When not at his day job James has put in hours upon hours of work in our yard making improvements and doing fence work and removing trees in order to meet the needs of the people and creatures who live here.

I have been home again this year, serving as teacher and facilitator here at Burson Academy.  Kids and animals keep me busy!  Our little zoo now contains 2 donkeys, 11 chickens, 3 dogs, 3 cats and 2 fish.  I have recently decided to start taking on dogs for overnight boarding as well.  I am also still volunteering as a local group leader for Attachment Parenting International.  And of course I manage to get roped into almost everything the kids are involved in, it’s plenty to keep me busy!

So that’s us, in a nut shell.  There’s other stuff to read about what actually went on this year if you feel like perusing this blog or clicking over to my home school blog.  I’ve been a pretty negligent blogger this year though and most of what goes on ends up on facebook!

We wish you all very Happy Holidays and a wonderful New Year!!
