Today's July Blogging Challenge prompt is Favorite Things - and naturally the song from The Sound of Music comes to mind... "These are a few of my favorite things..." I was trying to decide what category of favorite things to focus on, and remembered that I have a series of posts here on my blog that are tagged as "Favorites" so I am going to feature a round-up of those. Some time ago, a blogging friend started a weekly link-up of Favorite Things, and the earliest of these posts were written for that, but since then I have been occasionally tagging posts that talk about Favorites.

Middle School Monday - Reading List and the very similarly titled Middle School Monday - Reading Lists feature some of our favorite books for middle school and high school reading lists. (I know that comes as a surprise!)

It's not surprising that often I wrote about favorite curriculum of one type or another. The following posts all featured some resources that we especially loved: Our Reusable FavoritesMiddle School Monday - Math With FredC is for CurriculumVirtual Refrigerator - A is for Art Resources; and My Favorite Geography Resource. In Blue Ribbon Awards Are Coming Soon! I featured some of our favorite Schoolhouse Crew Review items from the previous year.

These three posts on my Virtual Refrigerator were a series of drawings Kennady did inspired by some of her favorite books. Oddly, each of them represented a doorway of some kind, which happened to be our Fridge theme for that month! My Fridge posts featured TARDISThe Wardrobe, and A Doorway In Bag End.

Do you have a favorite Olympic Games? I do, and during the most recent Winter Games, I explained why My Favorite Winter Olympic Games were the 1988 Winter Games in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

My Favorite Blankets - Flour Sack Quilts is one of several posts in which I've featured these pretty hand-made quilts and why they are so special to me.
