What a year it has been! We are excited to share with each of you some of what has transpired for us throughout 2021. We understand that it has been challenging for so many. We are grateful for the blessings we have received and are thankful that we can share that with others.
Over the past six years, we have had a lot of fun and great adventures by visiting each state. In 2021, we completed our objective to visit all 50 states in the United States by taking a spring break trip to Hawaii and a mid-summer trip to Alaska. Thanks to low fares, we were able to make it happen.
Our children continue to grow and challenge us in our ability to keep up with them. Life seems to fly by like the blink of an eye. We had an incredible year between school, extracurricular activities, skiing, traveling, college searching, and moving.
As alluded to, we recently moved into a new home down by Utah Lake. We worked to keep three of our four children in the same schools and close to their friends. We love being close to the lake and the Jordan River Trail system, as well as some lovely ponds and parks nearby. Our home is big enough for us to spread out and entertain friends and family. We look forward to many wonderful years here.
It is a joy to share our lives with each of you. We hope that you have had a wonderful holiday season and can take this time to reflect on the past year and look forward to the upcoming year. We are doing just that. This has been a great year for our family, and we are enjoying this time together as we look forward to a wonderful 2022. For those of you who are struggling at this time, we pray for you. We love you.
Our joy is rooted in our faith in Jesus Christ. In Him and His restored Gospel, we find purpose and meaning to who we are and why we exist.
Thank you for being fantastic family and friends. We love you!
