Thank You!

A big thanks to you --- our readers!

Yesterday, we passed 10,000 page views on the blog. While I know that may not sound impressive to some, that is a confirmation to us that you're still reading along & enjoying the journey with us!

When we started this blog, I had NO IDEA what I was doing on the technical side. Thankfully I had a couple friends who have been blogging several years who have mentored me. We DID have a goal in mind for the blog, and that goal is the same today --- to encourage families, through all sorts of ways, to spend time together! 

As we continue this journey, I just wanted to give you some updates on things to look forward to. We've had a busy summer, so not everything has been getting posted as soon as I would like, but there are several things in the works for you this fall. 

One of the first things you'l see a lot about is the Hope Conference, October 18 & 19, 2013 in Cicero, IN. We have been friends with Carl Kerby from Reasons for Hope (rforh*)for several years and want to support this endeavor of hosting the Hope Conference as much as possible. We know Carl's heart is to challenge, equip, and support strong families through the hope that only Jesus can give. At a cost of just $35 for the whole family (including a children's program) this is a weekend you won't want to miss! We'll continue to post about the speakers for the conference, have giveaways...and even give away a family ticket to the Hope Conference!

We have been blessed with a few other great giveaways for this Fall as well, from some great family-oriented groups. While we hope you're reading for more than just the giveaways, we understand that 'sharing' about a giveaway is an easy way to recommend our blog to your friends!

Our family has also been blessed to do some traveling this summer.(We've been in seven different states, just since Memorial Day weekend!) Whether you're looking for a one-day excursion, or ideas about where to go on a family vacation... we've got some family-friendly locations to tell you about. (To help those budget-minded readers, I'll also try to include the costs/ admission prices whenever I can!)

Indiana is FULL of great places to go as a family... so look forward to several one-day or over-night ideas. Maybe you're looking for something to do on the kids' Fall Break? Stay tuned for some of our favorites. If you haven't already, sign up to follow us by e-mail and make sure you don't miss a thing!Just click on the blue "join this site" box in the right sidebar.
