2016 was certainly a banner year around the Robinson house for our family. We are so thankful that 2016 was a healthy year for all of us and we give God the glory for clean scans and great UVA checkups for Dave.
Here are some highlights from our year!
The best and biggest news of 2016 came when Mike won the Regional Superintendent of the Year award. It was so amazing and emotional to watch him accept his award because frankly he was so deserving of it. We knew when he received his award that God had provided another job opportunity for Mike and that he felt that it was probably going to work out. Mike was a wonderful and tireless superintendent for ten years but it was time for a little less public and lower stress job which God provided. In August he began his tenure at the Linwood Holton Governor's School. He loves the challenge of his new job and we all love his lower stress level and more time with us. He has a more balanced life now which is a blessing to him.
We were blessed in 2016 and we cannot wait to see what 2017 has in store! We pray that as a family we grow closer to God, look for ways to serve Him in our community and enjoy quality time with friends and family. Welcome 2017!

Most families would be posting blog updates on all the holiday festivities their family has been participating in. Our family; however, has been spending the last few weeks preparing for Christmas between basketball games. We certainly love our basketball around here and yesterday was a pretty banner day in this household.
So for our family, instead of posting Santa pictures, cookies that we have baked, or a car full of presents bought, we post basketball updates! Our bottoms are numb from hours spent on basketball bleachers, but we love every minute of it. It is exciting to watch our oldest play high school ball, watch David have opportunities like Buzz's Bunch and his own AAU team, and to see our baby girl play a sport she was watched since infanthood. We are also so thankful for our village of extended family yesterday that helped our kiddos get to their activities. GG was with me for 11 hours in a gym and Mike was with Kyle. It took Pops, Uncle Chad, Aunt Net Net and Cousin Clayton to keep up with David at Virginia Tech yesterday. We are thankful for time together and for time watching our kids be basketball nuts.
