Build a birdfeeder

 I built a platform one for fruits just using a flat board and some wire.
Then I built some wine bottle ones using the sangria that I had shared with two friends.
 I gave them both bird feeders too!  Birds love it!

Visit 3 New Local Beaches

 I've pretty much been to every beach now between south side Chicago and Burns Harbor.
I still like my Lake Street Beach in Miller City the best!

Plant, Harvest, and Eat food from my own garden

Go Roller Skating

 Well, I actually skated quite a bit over this last year, but this was the first time I went with Eric and the kids.
 We had a good time at the rink over in Lynwood where the movie with BowWow was filmed.

Go Camping

Camping with a big group was not my favorite thing, but this tubing trip down the river was awesome!  This was the only part I took pictures.

Vacation in Myrtle Beach

Visit Christy or BOK

I finally got to see my good friend Christy when she met us over at Sunset Beach while we were on vacation.  It was good to see her after several years.

Join a Bible Study Group

Living in a new town makes it difficult to find a church and a group of people to study with.  So, I joined an online bible study.  It is part of the Bible app and its great because I can be friends with people in the app and discuss things.  Mostly I just talk to Eric about stuff.

I have also been reading a daily reading.  I've shared it with a few people, but again, mostly I discuss it with Eric.

I know this is not exactly what I had in mind when I said "join a bible study group", but ya gotta start somewhere!
