To Read on the Journey

Back By Popular Demand...

My lit'l ol' blog, Victory Rd.

Okay, popular is subjective.  The only folks really missing me 'round these parts are Great-grandma, a few aunts, a small handful of friends, and a female cat in Washington D.C. named Moses.  None the less, here I am!

So to get back into the rhythm of blogging I've decided on a "Throwback Thursday." Those of you that instagram know what this is, but Great-grandma, my aunts, and Moses have no idea.

Throwback Thursday, better known as #tbt in the world of instagram and hashtags, is a weekly photo "throw back" to the past.   It's not to be confused with "Flashback Friday" (known in the world of hashtag as  #fbf), which is essentially the same thing, only it falls on... you guessed it, Friday.

For this "Throwback Thursday" I'm gonna mix it up a bit and share not a photo, but a previous post from my blog. I've been blogging for more than 7 years, and like a good sitcom, I'm think'n there are some sweet episodes posts that ought to be rerun.  

So for this weeks #tbt (I'm planning on making a regular thing out of this), I'm sharing a blog post from August 2007, containing a short video of my then home schooling kindergartner, Josie, reading her first book.

I chose this post because I'm feeling "sentimentally ill" again.  Monday Josie begins 7th grade, Emilie 10th, and Noah 11th... I'm wishing I could press rewind and that we could literally throwback and flashback.  :)

5 down, 175 more to go!

 I am glad to say we have completed 5 of our 180 days of school (How many more days till fall break?).
Here is one of my favorite moments from this school week- Josie reading her first book.

Oh how I miss her "r" less words.

See you next time when I bombard you with photos and details of every. single. thing. we did this summer. Just kidding... maybe.

 Live in Peace,

Miss you much and am part of the happy group of friends welcoming you back. Of course, I fall in the same boat of MIA in blogland, but maybe that will change.
