As I was going back through the week selecting a picture for each day, I thought how hard it is to believe that an entire week has gone by. Then, I started the post with the title Week 52. 52?! Now that is inconceivable. And that thought process points to the fact that I am getting old. You never hear a sixteen year old talking about how fast time goes...its only old people that lament the swift passing of time.
Though it required a certain level of commitment, I am so thankful I participated in the project this year. I feel like I have created such a gift...to be able to go back through 2009 and see a little glimpse of what my life looked like...what our daily family life was like with two pre-schoolers and then as a young family of five. Soon, I will turn this past year's posts into a hard copy blog book and have an instant collection of memories, most of which would have not have been remembered. As a side to that all that, it gives my friends and family the lazy man's way of keeping in touch with our family.
And so, it is with that thinking in mind that I have decided to continue Project 365 in 2010. Can you stand it another year, Shaun? The camera out everyday?
Anyway, is this not the best week of the year? I just love every part of Christmas.
Christmas at Sarah's with Shaun's family.
My dad and his wife came and scooped up all three kids for the entire day. What a gift this close to Christmas! I worked through my to-do list which included a trip to get paint for the entryway in our home. I sighed when I saw the new pile of snow from the 20 or so inches that we woke up to on Sunday.
