So long 2015...

2015 is almost over. It was a great year for my family. Tim and I were able to travel to Hilton Head, SC where we enjoyed watching plenty of tennis.

Asbury University Men's Tennis Team made nationals again this year, so after graduation we drove to Mobile to watch them compete. By graduation, I mean Scott graduated from Asbury University with a degree in accounting.

Bill and Amanda have run a lot of races. This summer Bill and Scott ran the Tough Mudder with two friends.

During the summer I discovered I was a finalist in the Genesis Writing Contest sponsored by ACFW. I didn't win, but I got to see some great friends in Dallas at the yearly ACFW conference.

This year our sweet Brooke started kindergarten!

Scott, Tim, and I went to New York City and got to watch a few days of the US Open. What a thrill! I'd go back to the city anytime, and we loved the US Open.

My daughter-in-law, Amanda, started a blog on coping with infertility. She tackles the heartbreaking issues of infertility in a sensitive way and she has moved me to tears more than once.

Speaking of blogs, Scott and a friend also started a blog focusing on young adults facing life and how to handle money.

These are only a few of the blessings we've enjoyed this year. My word to focus on for 2015 was hope, and this was definitely a year of hope and dreams. Speaking of hopes and dreams, Scott proposed to his girlfriend, Kellianne Crouse. She will be a wonderful addition to our family, and we all feel blessed she said yes.
