In case you were wondering what’s new with the Donohoe’s:
This Year I: practiced learning all my letters and sounds, learned to ride a bike without training wheels (sort of), and learned to swim all by myself.
My Favorite Things Are: Pretending to fight bad guys with my friends, playing baseball, and any/all cartoons.
Favorite Memory of 2013: Moving to the farm and helping Meemaw and Pops with the chores. (Katie’s parents have a farm – We moved in with them while we wait for our house to be built)
In 2014 I am Most Looking Forward To: starting Kindergarten in the Fall!
This Year I: starting potty training, learned my colors and how to count.
My Favorite Things Are: singing, playing outside and playing with my dolly’s – especially Baby Hope.
Favorite Memory of 2013: being the flower girl at Uncle Mike and Aunt Meagan’s wedding.
In 2014 I am Most Looking Forward To: getting a little brother or sister! (Baby Donohoe #3 is due in early July!)
Age: younger than Jack
This Year I: survived another year of teaching math and SOL’s, tried some new recipes, read some good books, and enjoyed keeping up with 2 busy kids!
Favorite Memory: the surprise trip that Jack planned for us to Abingdon, VA. We stayed at the Martha Washington Inn, watched a show at the historic Barter Theater, and biked down the VA Creeper Trail – in the snow! Jack even called my principal and arranged my sub plans for me. It was a much needed break from the normal routine.
In 2014 I am Most Looking Forward To: having baby #3! And our new house being built. They have started on the foundation and some plumbing work. It should be move-in ready sometime in the spring. I think I am most excited about the closet space and being able to get everything out of storage!
Age: Old enough
This Year I: Spent countless hours dealing with County officials and arranging for building permits, soil tests, etc. for our new house. I am still working at Morton’s and enjoy the challenges that business and working in sales bring on a daily basis.
Favorite Memory of 2013: Taking lots of day trips with the kids – we went to the zoo, Busch Gardens, played at the lake, and more. I also really enjoyed seeing my little brother get married!
In 2014 I am Most Looking Forward To: our new home and having a yard to take care of. (And baby #3 of course!)
Boomer (our black lab)
This Year I: Slept a lot, got in trouble for getting on the couch all the time, rode on the gator around the farm, and learned not to chase cows because they are much bigger than me.
Favorite Memory of 2013: moving to the farm and getting a new friend, Belle (one of my parent’s dogs). I love it there! I am glad I will never have to live in “town” again!
In 2014 I am Most Looking Forward To: finding new mischief to get into!
