A List of a few of my favorites from 2010

In 2010 I...
  • Sold two poems to Highlights for Children
  • Built a sled run in the front yard with my hubby and kids
  • Became the new "media para" at work
  • and went from working 4 days a week down to 3
  • Witnessed my kids' first time swimming in the ocean
  • Saw my daughter win the district spelling bee
  • and my other daughter perform in the all state choir
  • Visited the Grand Canyon
  • and the Sequoias
  • Had TWO requests for the full manuscript of Sharra's War
  • Have seen Daughter #2 living out her faith at school
  • and Daughter #1 go on her first missions trip
  • Created a beautiful work of art with my children (with some help from hubby)
  • Began illustrating my first picture book
  • Went ice skating with my kids for the first time
  • Filled the last page in my poetry journal (on the left)
  • and received a new hand-made journal from my daughter for Christmas (on the right). Isn't it pretty?


  1. That is a mighty fine list you have there, Becky :)

  2. Wow! What a year! She won the spelling bee? You didn't tell me! Congrats!

  3. Angie--Thanks! And those are just a few. The list could be much bigger. I should have put my phone call from my dear friend in Bolivia!! :-)

    Corey--Yes, S. won the district spelling bee. She goes on to the regional bee in the spring. If she wins that, she'll go on to the big one in D.C.

  4. Congratulations on the manuscript requests!! That's so exciting!


I would love to hear from you!
