Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
AJ, Gracie, and I have had an eventful year. After living in Minnesota for 5 years, we sold our house and moved to New Jersey. Now, we live 9 minutes from one set of grandparents and an hour from the other set. Minnesota was a wonderful place filled with wonderful people, but also the place where we experienced the hardest time of our lives. This new start has been just what we needed.
AJ is in 2nd grade and will turn 8 years old this January.
Gracie Olivia (she’s decided to go by her middle name of “Olivia” in school) is in 1st grade.
The schools in our town of West Windsor/Princeton Junction (the town has two names. It’s weird like that in an old state like New Jersey) bus the kids to different schools throughout the town. We did not do this on purpose, but rather than the school down the street from us, the town happens to bus both the children to Dutch Neck Elementary, the same school that their father, Andrew, went to as a child.
With much love,
- Grace, AJ, and Gracie Olivia Mark
