This was yesterday’s POTD (picture of the day, for those of you just chiming in to my blog).
I’ll admit that my heart does a bit of a pitter-patter when I catch my kids looking at their scrapbooks together … or with their friends (like Claire with her little buddies yesterday). Right now they’re most interested in the funny pictures of their babyhood and youth. They want to see anything and everything silly. I love telling them about the pictures. It’s all written down on the pages. They’re just not reading like that yet.
Sure, this hobby provides a creative outlet. And that’s great. But for me, it’s more rewarding to know that I preserve personal histories, complete with pictures and fun stories and interesting anecdotes … for the people I love the most. The artistic side of it all is just the cherry on top.
