From the time my children were born I've been taking their photos on a regular basis, and filling scrapbook after scrapbook with memories, hoping to pass them down to them when they are grown and on their own. Several years ago life caught up with me and the scrapbooking stopped. Printed pictures turned into digital images that were saved on my computer, and sadly, I didn't back them up. And then I had a computer crash. Nothing could be retrieved from the hard drive. And I cried.
Blogging has helped me preserve some of those memories, but not often enough. I want to remember my children as children. I want them to remember their childhood, too. And so, this is my attempt to take a photo a day for a year. To remember all of the important days, and the not so important days. But you know, its the not so important days that add up to a lifetime, and they are special after all.
Day one. Collin's basketball game this evening was a very exciting night for our family. With Verne as the coach, and this being the first year to have a local home school basketball team, the team won 78-29, and Collin was the lead scorer with 19 points. Definitely a moment to remember.
