Saying Goodbye to 2013
I can’t say that I remember much of the first half of 2013, but the second half? Especially the summer? That was a stressful and busy time!
I’ve decided to take a photo tour of the year! Sharing pictures as highlights from 2013. But first I’m going to start with some blog post highlights though:
- I chose my focus word for 2013
- BooBear was accepted to her first choice college and received an academic merit scholarship!
- I posted my most popular ever post in February of 2013. It was a recipe for “Stir Fry” in a Crockpot!
- I wrote a post about Better Butter!
Now for a few pictures!
From January to May we experienced a Recital, Every Day School Life, a Birthday and Pascha!
June through December we experienced another recital, a heart attack, a graduation, a wedding, and more birthdays.
Other 2013 Highlights include: Honeybear reading the Epistle for the first time, growing a garden, and I became an Orthodox Godmother for the first time.
My friend Susan has organized a blog fair around the theme of Remembering the Real in 2013. Tomorrow’s blog fair theme is Looking Forward to the Real in 2014.

I always enjoy going back and looking through photos to pick some that show what our year was like. :-) Thank you for sharing these.ReplyDelete
I loved seeing your pictures as you remembered 2013 :-) I sounds like a real year of ups and downs, and lots of happiness. I also had to go back and read the better butter post because I'm currently looking for a better way to cook and eat. Happy New Year!ReplyDelete

Thank you for sharing all those lovely pictures! And thank you for linking to the Stir Fry in a crockpot recipe (I need all the help I can get in the dinner arsenal). Happy New Year!ReplyDelete
Tess, how well did your daughter do on her SAT tests? (I went back and read your X post.) Did College Prep do a good job of preparing her for it?ReplyDelete
