New Years Questions with the Kids 2022

Oh my goodness. 2022. I don't really know what to say. I feel like I started 2021 more hopeful in some ways than I am now. But it's not time to dwell. If I've learned anything over the past 2 years - it's been to make them best of what we've got. So 2022, I'm all ready to make the best of you.

If you haven't been following - I ask the kids the same questions every year and use the blog to document their answers. Considering I haven't posted here since OCTOBER - I'm amazed that I'm getting this post done. Below are their answers for 2022.
