2014 has been a fun year for the Paynes! The most notable things for me were traveling to Europe, starting a new job, and graduating with my masters degree. Here’s the year recap-
January brought lots of Olympic watching. A LOT. Also, my best friend got engaged!
In February, we saw our first ( and only) monster truck show.
In March, we went to our first Mavericks hockey game.
We also renovated our bathroom.
In April, I accepted a job at Platte City Middle School! This was probably the biggest, scariest change of 2014 for me!
May brought mine and Travis’ Masters’ graduation! We graduated from UMKC with our Masters in curriculum and instruction.
In June, we ran the Hospital Hill Run, watched World Cup soccer, and I started coaching volleyball with the Platte County Pirates.
June and July were filled in Europe! Travis and I traveled mostly around Italy, but also Spain, Montenegro, Croatia, and France.
August brought the start of school, the official start of volleyball, and Katy Perry!
September was filled with volleyball, volleyball, and more volleyball.
Besides Halloween, in October, we ran the KC Zoo Run.
In November, we hosted our second Thanksgiving in our house.
December held the first snow day of the 2014-2015 school year. We also had a great holiday season! I saw my favorite movie of the year (Into the Woods) and finished my 30th book of the year.
2014 has been a blast! 2015 has some work to do, but I have a feeling it’s going to be a great one! We have a Caribbean cruise in March, a Billy Joel concert in May, and my best friend’s wedding in June to look forward to already!
Happy New Years!
