It’s hard to believe that 2016 is almost over! It’s been a crazy year and I can honestly say it’s been quite a whirlwind with the unexpected pregnancy and then birth of baby Kennedy! Yet, overall it’s been a pretty good year for the Joneses.
Reagan will be turning five at the end of December and is in her second year of pre-school at Argenta-Oreana. She loves school and has amazing teachers that know just how to work with her spirited personality. Her favorite things include arts/crafts, playing outside, and her baby sister!
Kennedy is turning four months on the 16th of December and has a very sweet disposition/personality. She has mastered rolling from her back to her front, likes to suck her thumb/entire fist, is full of smiles, and overall is a pretty chill and relaxed little girl. Her favorite things include her big sister, Daddy playing the piano, and Mommy milk.
Kona is keeping busy with her job as Director of Online Learning, teaching Statistics as an adjunct Instructor, and doing extra contract work for an educational technology company (Canvas – the learning management system used at her main job). Kona’s free time is pretty limited, but she enjoys reading, taking pictures, and keeping the family blog up-to-date.
James is also pretty busy with his full time job as Professor of Mathematics, part time position as Internet Systems Specialist, and answering questions and creating/programming “Canvancements” for the online Canvas Community. James doesn’t have much free time, but seems to enjoy working on his tractor and doing other house/outside projects.
We didn’t travel too much this year since Kona was pregnant with Kennedy, but we have a big (3,000+ miles) driving vacation planned for this December! Time to introduce Kennedy to our Jones family traveling traditions and get her state count started!
For 2017 we have some big travel plans in the works for the end of July, Reagan will start Kindergarten (which seems impossible!), and Kennedy will turn one year old! Looking forward to a great year and wish everyone an equally wonderful 2017!
James, Kona, Reagan, & Kennedy
