Top 5 Posts of 2018

This will officially be the last post about 2018!  From here on out it will be 100% 2019!  Woo Hoo!  It's fun to me to look back at the end of the year and see what posts on my blog got the most attention of you guys!  Every year, there are a few posts that I'm not shocked got into the top five (like our weightloss post a few years ago).  But every year there are few random ones that sneak in there and surprise me!

Here are the top posts for 2018:

#5 - The First Day of School- With the kids and I all starting school in a new system this year, I wasn't too shocked that those types of posts got a lot of views.  However, the "first day of school" type posts are usually just really interesting to our family.  The fact that this made it in the top 5!

#4 - January Randoms- This is one of those posts that comes completely out of left field and surprises me!  This was my "random" post about January of 2018!  This post covered things like an "at home" date night, making snow cream, getting the flu, and Cooper losing a tooth.

#3 - Coming Home to Lowndes- This one was not a shock to me at all to be in the top 5!  This is the post where I officially announced that I was leaving the school system that I taught in for 11 years for my dream job!  Such a bitter sweet moment, but one of my most exciting moments of 2018!  This whole story was so amazing and had God's hand all over it.

#2 - Orlando Trip- This one surprises me a little.  This summer, the kids and I took a trip to Orlando for a few days with The Parkers.  We just hung out and enjoyed being together for a few days!  It was a great time with some of our best friends!  Plus, two moms with 6 kids??  That's bound to be a crazy time!

#1 - The Journey to Our New House- Before I even started looking at my blog stats for the year, I was pretty confident that this would be the #1 post (or pretty close to it).  Our old house was in a hard-to-sell area.  When we put it on the market, we were hopeful but also realistic that it may take a while.  Literally nine days after putting it on the market, we got a full price offer.  Then, 3 days later, we put an offer on our new house.  This story is 100% written by God and one of the craziest experiences I have ever lived.  It was an AMAZING thing to walk through this year!

Thank you so much for following along with our family this year!  We can't wait to see what 2019 holds for us!
