Happy New Years Eve Day 2020! Last year on this day we were looking forward to the year of perfect vision, boy was that a huge flop! This year we are looking for a better year in 2021, but 2020 wasn’t all bad. My sisters and I are each taking a topic about something to be thankful for from 2020 and posting our thoughts below. Enjoy!
Bailie’s Family Celebration Plan
Bailie here, and I’m in charge of the New Years celebrations for our family. I’m sure it’s no surprise with me being the party hound! Party planning is my thing and I have a wowzer of a day planned for Mom and my sisters. The dog school we go to for barn hunt practices and where Madison goes to for nose work school is having a Barkin’ In The New Year party starting in the afternoon today. We are ones who like to be early in bed, so we won’t be staying until midnight, but we are entered in some fun activities during the day. All three of us will be doing some rat games with Mom, and Olivia and I are entered in a sniffing contest.
It will be super fun, and we will be home in time for dinner, a Bowser Beer or two, and then into bed early. For some that may seem boring, but we are all super excited! New Years morning we love to be up super early to go for a nice long walk in the new year, so it’s good we like to hit the feathers early.
Olivia’s 2020 Sports Update
I’m the biggest sports hound in the family so for me it is natural to be thankful for the sports we had in 2020. What I am not thankful for is our Vikings football team who really stink, but that is a whole different story. Yes, most of our sports were cancelled in March, April, and May, but we were back on the road in June!
Despite the mean virus, we took some fun road trips in 2020. We may not visit the big places like Los Angeles, or New York City, but we sure have fun visiting smaller towns within hours of our house. In February and September we traveled to Illinois. June, August, and September took us to North Dakota, and some small towns in Iowa. Northern Minnesota was the spot in July and October. We had fun on every trip!
2020 allowed Madison and I to try and fall in love with FastCAT, earning our BCAT titles on the same day. Bailie didn’t do a lot of sports this year, but she did earn a couple new titles when she did compete. Madison also earned scent work and nose work titles along with some legs toward her Barn Hunt Champion Title. I earned my first nose work titles, more scent work titles, and a barn hunt title. All in all, not bad for a pandemic year!
Madison’s 2020 Blog Statistics
Ethos Intel Inside, that’s me, Madison is the tech hound of the family. My idea for today and being thankful for something in 2020 is our blog. I have some fun statistics, but keep in mind, today, New Years Eve Day 2020 is not counted in my numbers. We are in our tenth year of blogging, which is crazy amazing!
