Wow, slacker city!
2012 brought a lot of changes to the Pierce household. I guess the biggest one was the kids all started private school. Yes, all 5. I wish I had a dollar for every time someone has asked me what I do all day now that the kids are gone. I want to say, "Oh the same thing you do...sit around with my feet up, eat bon bon's and watch soap opera's". But instead I just smile and assure them I am just as busy as ever. Sending the kids to school was one of the hardest decisions I have had to make but I am at peace with it for now. Bert has gone back to a daytime schedule and we are still getting use to that. It is not easy adjusting your schedule after 8 years but we are getting there. The kids are doing great and enjoying school for the most part. The thing that they really dislike about school is the getting up at 6am. ( I hate that part too).
Here are a few pics from the past year in no particular order.
