My Camera Reveals the Truth

My plans for a lovely two-week long reconnect over March Break has hit some loud snot-filled bumps filled with tears and screaming. Those bumps have been loud and long enough that I started to think the whole Great Reconnect idea was a big fat failure. But then my camera proved me wrong.

This is why I take so many photos. It helps to prove that my memory is flawed. It helps me to remember the things I would never normally remember.

    Our spring break has not gone as planned either. There has been lots of sickness, and tiredness. I too have been feeling frustrated. I think I should check my camera! Good post!

    Wow, she’s riding a bike already! That’s great! We had a pretty boring break but managed to get exciting household chores done one day including a new kitchen sink faucet that actually works! Wahoo! And a bunch of framed photos! Wahoo again! Oh and I got Theo’s immunization records. Wahoo!
