2019 In Review

The last day of 2019! Another wonderful year for us in the books. We had some milestone birthday's this year (Mat turned 45, Arlington turned 16, and Finley and Cainan turned 13). We vacationed in Scotland, Netherlands, Spain and Denmark. Mat and Arlington visited London and Mat and Cainan visited Denmark a second time. Finley and Cainan went on their annual ski trips with their schools. Arlington visited Spain with her school. My parents came for a few visits. We spent 6 weeks in the United States visiting family and friends. We went to Lake Norman with Mat's family. We held a big fundraiser for Finley and our foundation. Arlington did a 75 hour internship and visited colleges. Arlington had a major knee surgery. And in between there was school, life, friends, and new experiences. On a personal note I read 168 books! My most ever. Here's to a great 2020 where we look forward to a trip to Japan and Whales.
