Our Most Popular Posts of 2012

Happy New Year!  I can hardly believe it’s 2013.  This is the year I send my youngest to kindergarten, and will officially be a mom of school-age children.  Yikes.

Have you made any resolutions for your family life?  Things have been a little more squirrely here than usual, so I haven’t had a chance to make anything official yet, but I have a mantra for 2013 floating in my head: Less screens. More pages and play.  Yes, even Risky Families struggle with screen time.  It’s an issue for us, and definitely something I want to address in the coming days.  Is it a struggle for you, too?

Lisa and I are doing our best to get back to a normal posting schedule this month, and we have some really cool posts coming up (including a giveaway for our 1-year anniversary – can you believe it?!).  However that might be a little tricky in the next week or two.  My trusty Mac, on which I do 99% of my work, is living at the Apple store right now.  Keep your fingers crossed that it can be fixed, will ya?  We are also dealing with a very ill family member, which may require last minute trips out of town.  So while we might be spotty for the coming days, we will be back in full risky force soon.  Thank you so much for continuing to read, share and play with us.
