Exactly one year ago today, on November 30, 2010, after almost three years of somewhat sporadic blogging, I published my 500th blog post.
Apparently, in the last year, I’ve had a lot more to say, because today marks my 1,000th blog entry. Yes, that’s 500 posts in one year’s time, the same amount I had previously written in almost three years!
Ironically, my very first blog past, way back in January 2008, had a similar topic to my most-read blog post of all-time. I don’t know, maybe that just means I can’t come up with anything new to write about! Or I’m just incredibly single-minded–maybe I should work on broadening my horizons…
At any rate, I hope that I’ve shared some helpful information over the years, (and especially in the last year). I’ve tried to share a lot of homeschooling ideas, to provide inspiration and encouragement for those who are interested. I’ve also shared a lot of our daily lives, for pretty much the same reasons. I hope I’ll continue to have new ideas and stories to share, and maybe provide people with a laugh at some of our misadventures, if nothing else!

I’ve been reading your blog for quite a while now and love the homeschooling entries. I found your blog when I was thinking about using Sonlight. I’ve changed my mind about a million times since then regarding curriculum….but I’ve always gotten great ideas from your blog! I have 5 year old twin girls. I’d love to know where you got your Jesse tree ornaments and what books you’re using with them. We’re studying the Nutcracker this year for the first time and using alot of the books you used! (oh, and by the way, I love booze soaked cakes!)
Cheryl, this is the Jesse Tree kit we’re using. I like it for two reasons–the ornaments are “blank,” so the children get to color them, (I laminated them when they were done), and I also like the daily Bible verses/book readings that are included. It’s no longer available on Amazon, but I found it in our local Catholic supply store, so I know it’s still available. This one looks similar, but since I haven’t used it, I can’t say anything about the readings. The ornaments in that one are already done, which may or may not be helpful, depending on what you’re looking for.
I’m glad you’ve found my blog helpful–sometimes I wonder if blogging is just a socially acceptable way of talking to myself! 😉
On Friday, I’ll be sharing a list of all of the books we’re using in “Christmas School” this year–stay tuned!
Congratulations on 1,000 posts! Keep up the good work [smile].
