John + Chelsy Maxwell

Life has been crazy lately with a wedding, two big New Years celebrations, numerous out of town guests, subzero temperatures (which means lots of extra work on the farm), family jam sessions to prepare for our Winter Tour, homeschool, normal daily work, and an injury (Denver injured his leg but is on the mend). In addition to that, we have extra work in the office and house as we wrap up many, many projects in preparation to leave for 3 months!
The blog's been pretty quiet lately, both because our main blogger got married (and we haven't completely transitioned those responsibilities yet:), and because we've been pretty occupied with other things!
I (Allison) will be posting here several times this week, as well as sharing daily life updates over on our family instagram, @bontragerfamilysingers . We'd love for you to follow along!
Wishing ya'll productive and joy-filled start to 2018!
