For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
~T.S. Eliot, "Little Gidding"
Here is the collection of my favorite blog posts of 2013. Do you have a favorite that didn’t make the list?
I spent a bit of time exploring the elements of a “good life.”
And the follow-up post:

Out and About
I loved looking back at all the pictures from this Amtrak field trip with the boys.
Some of my favorite pictures of the year happened at Wildlife Safari.
I love our new tradition of hiking at McDowell Creek Falls on the first day of school. This was our 2nd annual celebration.
I spend many hours putting together this detailed curriculum series. There are links to posts for specific subjects at the beginning of this last post in the series, as well as a link to our Medieval history-based book list link at the end.
This was a six-part series on my speaking notes from the local Classical Conversations Parent Practicums. I shed a lot of blood, sweat, and tears over this one.
We had three Memory Masters this Year! Luke, Levi, and I put in a great deal of hard work to earn those titles!
Food and Health
I think this 2 minute Paleo chocolate-cake-in-a-mug post was the most-viewed post of the year.
My niece Ilex and her friend Adelaine. Gorgeousness.
I will treasure these pictures of my grandparents!
Favorite TV Show
Did I watch a movie in the theater this year? Catching Fire is the only one I can remember. (Is that sad?)
