May took us to our next new home: Duvall, WA. I'd never heard of it. Certainly didn't know where it was. In Duvall, the kids and I enjoyed one last magical summer coming and going as we pleased with little responsibility. All the while, Eric worked hard. So very hard.
At the end of August, we took a trip to Eagle, ID to visit the Shaver side of the family and then it was time for SCHOOL! Amos was thrilled to start kindergarten. He has impressed us endlessly with his hard work and excitement for learning. Maggie is having the time of her life in Pre-k. Ward and Audrey are loving being king and queen of the castle for a few hours each afternoon.
In Duvall we were welcomed with open arms by our new ward, and were quickly put to work. Eric is the young men's president and I am the activities counselor in the Relief Society presidency. Add in soccer for Amos and dance class for the girls and the Hornes are a family in motion.
Reading this back, it really is no wonder I've felt tired for a year ;) In spite of all that's different, there is one thing that is exactly the same as it was one short year ago. Four little people and one amazing man are my entire world. In any state.
