I'm in a loop:
Every fall I get all anxious about all the fall events, holidays, birthdays, Mommy crap. I have a near anxiety melt-down over pulling off a perfect stress-free Christmas.
And then every January I get on here and bitch about winter and wanting to go to Texas. And for all of February every year I am on realty websites picking out our new house in Texas. Every other post for the past few years has been about how homesick I am for Texas.
And then every spring I decide it is beautiful and great here.
And then every summer we travel all over and do a million things and generally love life.
And then every late summer I grumble about when is school going to start and why do I live so far from my family.
Is this normal? My mother in law says I'm restless. Maybe that is all it is.
I feel like it just brings on middle age so fast. Everything is so predictable. I want to pull the kids out of school, sell the house, rent an RV, buy a homeschool curriculum and just GO. Be adventurous.

In 2012, Rebecca started horseback riding. She LOVES it. Here she is with good ol' reliable Wednesday.
In a desperate last ditch documentation attempt, here are some unsorted, random photos from last year.
John deployed again and came home in the summer.
Rebecca did horseback riding camp and won to ribbons in a mock horse show, including first place for trotting. Here she is with Silver (the pony's name).
