Fun Thoughts

a look at 2011

I really can’t believe yesterday marked a new year.  I always feel cliche in saying it goes by so fast but it just does!  One of my favorite things to do this time of year is to look back and highlight my favorite posts from the year.  Here’s a look at 2011…

We had a crazy Texas winter resulting in school being closed for about a week!  Games, s’mores, and crafts kept boredom at bay.

We all went to the Texas State Fair (my first time ever to go to the fair) and tried fried bubble gum.  I don’t recommend it.

Loved hearing the feedback on Jeremy’s Acquired Taste blog tour and was so proud of Joshua for taking 3rd place in Number Sense UIL.  Of course, Christmas is always a December highlight.
