500th Post

Did you catch that? Did you read the title???

This is our 500th post!!!!!

How did that happen? Surely I didn't write that many. I mean, I didn't even want to start the blog in the first place. I've explained how I fought it for months. It's not that I didn't want to document our lives. It's just that I didn't want to write and have people read it and judge me. Yet here I am writing and you're reading it . . . but you're not judging me, right???  Those first 6 months or so, we blogged only a few times. After we started officially homeschooling 2 years ago though, we started posting more regularly. I don't always get things posted when I want to. I'm not a phenomenal writer. I don't take the greatest pictures. But I'm learning. And more importantly, we're creating a keepsake for us and our children. We enjoy looking back at the activities we've done. We laugh as we reminisce the fun times we've had. We smile at the images of our young children and wonder how they've grown so quickly.

So, here we are, 500 recorded memories later. This blog has become such a blessing. I thought it would be fun to take a look at some of our top posts over the years. I've listed the top 5 most read posts in each category (make it monday, tasty tuesday, theory thursday, and everything else.) Grab a cup of coffee and a piece of cake and browse around. I hope you find something of interest. Thank you for joining in the celebration with us.
