Just a quick note to say that it’s “Prom” night at our house (actually, our school has a banquet, no dancing) and my 17 year old just left to pick up his girlfriend in his very first tuxedo and carrying his first corsage. He’s tremendously handsome and it almost makes me cry to see him looking so grown up! This is son #3, so you’d think I’d be used to this by now…
Thank you so much to Elizabeth O’Neal at the Little Bits of Life blog for sending me the Kreativ Blogger award! To say that I was shocked when I checked my email last night would be an understatement! It’s wonderful to know that this blog IS being read and that something thinks I’m doing a nice job and I’m looking forward to continuing to work on the blog in the coming year.
I know that there are some requirements that go along with this award and I’ll be working on those and posting again in the next week or two. (Probably during exams at school! LOL!)
Thanks again! I am humbled!
For the past year, I’ve been working on a massive project for my job at school. I’ve created over 150 Power Point programs that teach my math lessons using new technology in my classroom. I’ve spent 3-4 hours each night working on these programs and I’m THRILLED to say that I’m finally finished! Which is going to give me my evenings back to work on genealogy!
SOOOOO…..it’s time to get back to my blog! I plan to participate in the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories that is currently posted at Geneabloggers.com. As I look at that list, I see a few post suggestions that I won’t be able to post about (for example, I’ve never had a fruitcake!), but I think it will be a good way to get my mind wrapped around my genealogy again – and I CAN’T WAIT!
Welcome to my blog. I’ve been doing genealogy research for years, and now I feel a strong desire to begin writing the story of my family. I’d like to make this blog a place to document my research steps as well as a place for my scattered ideas for family stories to be collected and to germinate. To me, the hardest part of writing has always been to begin. This is my beginning…
