You all know how much I like to fit in and follow the crowd...
...and so, because it seems to me that all the cool people are doing it, I've decided to publish my own "Top Ten" posts list.
I didn't do any major statistical analysis. These are just some of my favorites. Consider them the "in crowd" of blog posts.
10. What Kids Really Need -- in which Acacia points out the obvious, and I (as per usual) risk being misquoted.
9. "Doing School" -- in which life is school, and not necessarily the other way around.
8. 10 Pieces of Good Advice from Experienced Homeschool Moms -- a "top ten" within a "top ten", in which I cheat and post other people's best stuff, rather than my own.
7. Whose Baby is it Really? -- in which an imaginative toddler reminds me of an important theological lesson.
6. Coming Out of the Closet -- in which I answer the dreaded question, "Haven't you guys figured out how that happens yet?"
5. The World is Not Enough --in which I discuss what's really missing from government run education, and it has nothing to do with test scores...
4. Don't Be Afraid, Have Faith -- in which I admit I can't knit.
3. Am I Really Content? -- in which I admit I can't knit, or garden, or keep a clutter-free home...but I do know how to break the 10th commandment.
2. Enough Rope to Hang Myself -- in which I am reminded that I'll never actually be part of the "in crowd"...and I'm okay with that.
1. Decisions or Disciples? -- in which I ask an uncomfortable question that has been bothering me for a long time, and should bother you, too.
So, there you have it! Ten posts that have made me smile in 2010. Hopefully, they've made you smile...and think...too!
May He bless you and yours richly in the year to come! "See" you in 2011!
