Reliving 2009

I learn a lot by revisiting old blog posts. Jo-Lynne at Musings of a Housewife started the Blog Recap Carnival a couple of years ago---your mission is to share the beginning of the first post of each month for the previous year (I've decided to omit reviews):


January:
Our princess is 5 today!


February:

So, what are y'all doing in school these days
besides reviewing stuff for TOS, you ask?
Actually, we just started learning about the Renaissance.


March:
Sorry, took me a whole week to get the snow picture on:-)
Maybe this will be our last snow this season?

April:
Emma was born at 6:49pm, central time on March 30th
(the day after David's 9th birthday).
Weight: 7lbs., 3oz
Length: 20 inches

May:
Woohoo, I've finished my final review for the The Old Schoolhouse Homeschool Crew's first year!

June:
Many of you don't know this, yet, but our family will soon be moving from northwest Missouri to Maryland, the state where hubby and I grew up.

July:
I'm a little late posting these (blush),
they are almost 2 weeks old.


August:
Yoplait's Thick and Creamy Yogurt has a nice smooth, almost custard-like texture...and absolutely no lumps.

September:
So I’ve been cranking out the reviews lately…ever notice how when you put things off, they always seem to pile up on you. Kinda like dirty laundry. Here’s another thing I’ve been putting off, posting loads (no pun intended) of pics.

October:
Sometimes it pays to go back...and reread your own words. You know how it is when you struggle with an issue for a while and then a little lightbulb lights up in your head and you have the answer? My insights don't stay with me, I have to have them over and over again...I guess that means that I'm a slow learner.

November:
Day One: 1,718 Words!

December:
I recently finished reading Little House on the Prairie to my 5-year-old daughter. There’s something strangely liberating about the thought of traveling across country in a covered wagon with the barest necessities, not bothering to move any furniture, figuring Pa will just make it all when you get there (Oh, how I wish we coulda done that!). And there’s something awe-inspiring about two little girls being thrilled to receive their own shiny new tin cups from Santa. Nowadays it seems we’re caught up in acquiring that new state-of-the-art gadget or a hulking-plastic-something-or-other.
