Happy 15th Birthday, Bonny Glen

I’m feeling very memory lane-ish tonight! Fifteen years of blogging—not always steadily, but persistently. Thanks to all of you who’ve hung in here with me this long. I’ve been working behind the scenes to tidy things up here and have lots and lots of plans for the coming year—things I’m eager to share—but I’d love to hear from you, too, about what you’d like more of, what you miss, what you’re curious about.

In the meantime, here’s a little blast from the past—a post from a randomly-chosen January in my archives. I landed on 2007 and discovered so many moments I’d forgotten, like this epic battle over…wait for it…dryer lint. I’m howling. The involved parties, now all grown up, are going to howl even louder when they read this.

(And don’t miss the recipe for dryer-lint clay in the comments. Clay!!)

    Please tell me you don’t kill dust bunnies!

    Wonderful choice of archive post, and wonderful to have been sharing it all for 15 years. Congratulations. No mean feat. I wish I hadn’t missed so much, but please carry on for another 15; at least. ❤️

    Awww—-Lissa. You started this blog right about the time I was getting to know you. I had to have you explain to me what a blog was :0) Can’t put into words how much I have enjoyed it all this time and how much it and you encouraged me in those early years of homeschooling. If I could pick your brain, I guess I wonder (as I do for all those homeschool mommy bloggers I followed in those early years)—how did it turn out for you and your brood? What would you do differently? What would you do exactly the same? Would your kids have the same answers? You were always so good at seizing the day and showed me how to chase rabbit trails and that it was okay to not finish the book and how a nature walk can cure the grumpiest child. It’s taken me a long time to put some of those lessons into practice and even longer to have the confidence to forge our own path. I wonder how many readers out there you inspired in a similar way. A million thanks to the Bonny Glen. Much love from Virginia.
