Our 500th Post!

We here at Texas Skies are very happy to post our 500th post! We have been blogging since August 27, 2007.

The very first post was published at 10:46pm on the 27th of August '07. Yes, we were very excited and just had to post, even at that late hour! Since then we have posted 499 posts, numerous photos and thousands of words. We hope that this blog has been an encouragement, and has, most of all, glorified our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Here are some of our favorite selections from the 500 posts:

David ~ Germany Pictures
Julia ~ Julia's First Watercolor Painting
Joel ~ Excerpts from Ephesians
Abby ~ Patience: Lessons from a 6-year-old
Caleb ~ When Does Tyranny become Tyranny?
Phoebe ~ Goofiness
Johanna ~ Flowers (part one)
Jaden ~ "Frito-Bandito!"

We'd love for you to leave your comments, and let us know what your favorite post(s) has been.

Now for the fun part... you get to guess which middle name fits each person in our family! For some of you it will be very easy, for others it might be a little harder. Have fun!

1. Charisse
2. Jacob
3. Anna
4. Gregory
5. Paul
6. Ann
7. Nathaniel
8. Ruth

All of our first names are (in age order): Julia, David, Joel, Abby, Caleb, Phoebe, Johanna and Jaden. Just match the number with the name in your comment.
