Blog in Review 2013

One of the things that I did this year was get back into blogging. I had been blogging but not as regularly. I enjoy blogging and sharing a bit of our life. Blogging has given me new friends, new ideas, new recipes and more new things. Blogging has helped me to remember and keep track of things we have done, places we have been, things we have experienced, things we have learned and a few other things.

This blog is primarily about our family. We travel for fun and ministry so there are posts relating to our travel.

Here are some of the favorites from the readers of this blog.

One of the favorite ones from this year was our ice cream sandwiches from a street vendor in Singapore. I think this might have been the most clicked entry.

Miss K really did enjoy that sandwich. Chocolate chip ice cream is her favorite. I will add that getting a good photo of her is a challenge.

Bob ate two of them. These are perfect for a hot day and Singapore has plenty of those days. There is one season in Singapore - summer. On a cold day I think about moving there.

We also spend some time in England and were all over. Bob's favorite place was Keswick. He wants to go back next summer. On our way back to the team center we stopped by Hilltop Farm which is where Beatrix Potter lived. We were able to tour her house.

A big part of the blog is homeschooling, things we did, how we did them, and just a record of what is happening in our learning.

My schooling method falls towards the classical learning style and so this post about some of my thoughts was one that was clicked on quite a bit.

One of the posts that received the most comments was this about teaching grammar. That post was one that I read a few times because it was one that I didn't want to have a misspelling or grammar mistake. Some days I don't feel qualified or capable to teach everything but I continue on praying that God will enable me and provide the resources that I need.

We add a bit of special needs into our life with Miss K and the extra 21st chromosome. Teaching her life skills can be a challenge at times. Some of our success was shared and celebrated here.

This blog is also about various things that we enjoy. Bob enjoys soccer and there was a post sharing some of the photos from this fall.

I enjoy cooking and my family enjoys eating. That is a good combination. I enjoy finding new recipes, trying new foods, cooking with an international flare. I share some of this here on the blog as a way of remembering what I did. I shared my 10 pound bag of lentils and how we are slowly eating these lentils. By the way we have about a pound or two remaining. We will celebrate finishing by buying another bag (maybe).

I also enjoy crafting but as most of those things are in our shipment I have not done much so there has not been such to share. We are hoping and praying that we will be able to move the beginning of the year. We all have a list of things that we want from our shipment. I want my sewing machine so look for me to share some of the things I have made next year.

Thank you for reading and following my blog. Please let me know what you want to see more of next year.
