I’m undertaking a huge project of ordering photos right now. Remember these in my kitchen?
Well, I’m four months behind in updating those. The frames in and of themselves are a conversation piece when people come over, but the fact that I’m way behind is an even better one. I’m not alone in my procrastination, that’s what I’m finding out. I’m in good company, at least.
Also, speaking of being behind on photos, Max asked if we could sit down and look through his two scrapbooks. I’m glad I did those back when I had more time.
I really want to make at least one for Mini. By Christmas. I can do that, right?
On another note, but kind of related: above is a picture of Max looking through our adoption profile book that I made in 2002. One day this week he asked me while we were eating lunch, “How was I adopted?” He’s been known to throw out questions like this at random times but I love how they are evolving as he’s getting older. Even though he was 5 when Mini was adopted, he is making new connections between her story and his, i.e. the adoption agency, waiting to be chosen, etc.
Once again, thank you Lord for everything. We are so humbled that you made our little family in this way.
Anyway, so I’m focused on ordering photos on this rainy Saturday because Shutterfly is offering free shipping until 9/30. Deadlines are good for me and I’ll do just about anything for free shipping. I’m seriously scaling down the number of photos I would usually order but maybe with a smaller stack I’ll actually put them in an album. I’ll let you know how it goes.
