2013 is Almost Gone

Spread the love

It’s hard to say it without sounding cliche, but time really does fly. Even more so the older that I get.

As I reflect upon another year, I hope that I have grown. I know that I have, but it’s sometimes hard to see in the midst of the day to day trials. I still worry. I still lose my temper. I still complain. But I have a hope. I know that God is not finished with me. I know that Christ is my righteousness. Thankfully, I don’t have to rely on my own!

I looked back over my blog posts for the last year, and I chose 1 per month to share. I did not include any reviews, so there were some months that I left out.

B is for Books and C is for Capital.

We had a nice, but freezing trip to DC for spring break. Ironically as I write this on the first day of winter, my children are outside playing in short sleeves.

Here are my plans for my middle son’s 5th grade year.

Here are our 10th grade plans.

Those are going a bit better.

Here’s my Defense of Busyness.

I’m not sure what my excuse is now that cross country is over.

If you’re feeling Blah, you can check out my Blah Blog Busting Post Ideas.

I have unfortunately not implemented these as much as I’d like.

Finally, there’s a little tutorial for December – Making Catalog Christmas Trees.
