A few months ago Cherie and I were talking about how Ben and Alex would be graduating high school and going to college in the next year. As we talked about that it hit us that 2010 would include some big milestones for our family... and a lot of them.
All of these milestones are good things, but as we realized how much will be happening I think we began to prepare ourselves for the emotional roller-coaster to come. It all starts in a couple days and just keeps going from there:
January 4: I turn 40 (I'll be blogging more about that this week)
March 13: Ben & Alex turn 18
May 11: Cherie turns 40
June 10: Ben & Alex graduate from high school
Mid-August: Ben & Alex start college
August 25: Cherie & I celebrate 20 years of marriage
September 7: Miyah turns 5
Life will be changing for everyone in our house a lot this year and I think my sister put it best in a comment on my Facebook wall:
"What a year it will be! Shall I send you a supply of kleenex to have on hand?"
Let the roller-coaster ride begin.... and by the grace of God we'll take it one big day at a time!
