Thanks for the many positive comments on our financial accomplishment!

For those of you with a long ways to go, I thought I would post the growth of our net worth over the last 9 years in 6 month increments.

One thing jumps out at me, we were stuck between $550k & $650k from 12/99 to12/02, but since then, we've had 5 great 6 month stretches.

Good luck to all in reaching your goals!
