My blog turns four!

When I posted my first entry in Oct 2005 I was totally unaware of the adventure that was about to unfold in my life ......... it all happened one evening as I searched the internet for homeschooling advice. I was directed to a blog at homeschoolblogger.com. I signed up that night not quite knowing the reason why I wanted or needed a blog!! My first post EVER ... One Giant Leap!

Initially I saw blogging as a tool for gleaming ideas from other creative homeschooling moms. Then......... I experienced the excitement of meeting other ladies from all over the world. As I got more confident, I started to tweak my template(play around with the html code) and had fun creating new effects on my blog.

In the last two years I have been more selective about what I blog on. I've tried to make it less about me and my opinion, and have focused more on creating memories. When the kids have flown the nest, I will still have all those beautiful memories to treasure. When I sit with my grandchildren, I will be able to share with them the fun times their parents had as youngsters.

(PS .... thank you to all my wonderful blogging gals who visit and comment ..... I would really love to enjoy a cuppa tea/coffee with you at a real table! This virtual table is great but to actually meet you would be SO much better!)

Yaay...happy birthday/anniversary/blogoversary...whatever you want to call it! 4 Years is a long time...isn't it fun to look back to see how your children have grown, and how your lives have changed as you recall memories you might otherwise have forgotten?

I hope one day to have my blog printed out just as a keepsake for my children. This is where I want to have it printed...maybe your husband can have yours printed for you for Christmas this year!! =)

Oh how I'd love to sit and enjoy some tea with you...but since we can't, I still want you to know I appreciate you and am glad we've become friends online. =)

Blessings,
Elinor
