5 years old and going back to school

Today is the 5th anniversary of this blog.  Wow, time really does fly.  I am not sure what I would have said if you told me 5 years ago what I was doing today. Honestly, I had no idea where I would go or what I would do!

In 5 years I have written hundreds of blog posts (not nearly as many as I wanted!) and watched my skills as a researcher bloom.  The genealogy community is such an amazing one.  So welcoming and so friendly, I was very overwhelmed at first to be sure.  Thanks to that welcome, plus the advice of countless people, I feel like I have flourished from those first nervous steps.

As I think on it, it is only fitting that on my fifth anniversary I am in school furthering my genealogy education.  Which, has been a great experience so far.  But, I am only 8 weeks in.  Ask me in a couple months how I am holding up. 

I wonder if the next 5 years will be just as amazing!
