2011 Top Posts: Jan - Jun

Tra la la la la....Oh, hello readers. 

In case your were wondering, yes it IS that time of year again.  And no, I'm not referring to "The Holidays".  Rather, I'm talking about that other tradition that takes place as the we prepare to bid adieu to the past year, and welcome the new year (you know, the one where we will get into better shape, get more sleep, learn a foreign language, etc....) into our lives.

Of course, It's End of Year List time!

Here at LIAYF I will be doing a few list posts, most notably my 2011 Best Albums post, which I am especially looking forward to since I have listened to a ton of great music this year, but I am going to begin by continuing the tradition I started last year of breaking up my Best of list into two posts. One for the first half of the year, and another for the last half.

So if you are new to LIAYF, or if you are an occasional reader, check out these posts - which I consider to be among of the best that I published in the first half of 2011.  Then, look for the July - December edition towards the end of the month.

January - Fear Not Citizen  What do you get when you give a 3 year old his very first cape and unleash him on the school playground?  A Super chivalrous hero for the people, that's what.

February  - I Don't Blame Him, I Think She's Great Too  This dad realizes he can't compete with a Mother's love, and is just fine with that.

March -  Hot Potato - The crowd experiences an emotional roller coaster during this nail biting competition in the pre-school room.

April - My Good Friday - I exorcise the skeletons of my past, in order to move forward with my family's future.

May - Rhymes with Sympathy - Our very first parent teacher conference came during pre-school.  And it reinforced some wonderful things we already knew about Lukas.

June - Troubles Will Be Gone -  Sometimes shedding some light on ones fears is all you need to do.  Especially when it comes in the form of a rocket.

Honorable Mention - Holy Dry Shorts Batman -  Sometimes getting a reward for a special accomplishment is only half the fun. (Awesome picture included!)

I am new here, as you know, but I'm also at work, so will do my best to read those, if I haven't already! :)

Hi James, I'm new around here so I'll have to go through your Best of 2011 (and then through everything). Good thing I got here at that exact post! Very nice blog, you'll see me around.

I think I read most of those? Maybe? Not sure! Anyhoo, I think might do the same as you here. Happy Chrimbo by the way!
