Happy New Year 2022! (And may it be happy...)

  Happy New Year 2022! And may the year be a better one than either 2020 or 2021! From the bottom of my heart, I wish everyone a happier, better year than the tough duo of 2020 and 2021. When I think about the details (like online schooling for seven months...ugh), 2021 was not easy, but it made a tremendous difference that we were settled in one place. The limbo of 2020  made it a year of hardship as far as I'm concerned. I have many hopes and dreams for this year, mostly centered around schools remaining open 😂 Best wishes!
