The other day when I was a guest on the Paperclipping Roundtable, we discussed the idea that blogs can hold us accountable for things we want to do. I KNOW better than anyone that I have NOT always followed through this principle, but nevertheless I am push forwarding with a another new intention.
As you know I am deep in the refreshing of my upcoming workshop, Finding Photo Freedom. I’ve recently struck upon a new idea that I’m excited to teach–it is the idea of declaring your scrapbooking (or storytelling) success, by creating a personal E.Q. or Enough Quotient. I’ll probably talk more about this is coming weeks, but for now all you need to know is that monthly blog posts designed to document what individuals in my family are doing “right now” are an important part of my E.Q. and I’d like to use my blog to hold myself accountable for these posts (help me out, Ok?)
I’ll begin with a quick rundown that includes a sentence or two about each of us (from R to L)Love this family. Right now …
is trying out for club soccer and rehearsing with the cast of Narnia (the next play at CVHS, in which he is fulfilling the role of the Centaur’s backside.) Trey is busy, busy.
is working on his senior project, which is a snowboarding video. He brought home his graduation announcements on Friday (yikes!)
anxious for warm weather and his Thursday golf games. He got snowed out on Thursday, but he made up for this by riding his Harley to church yesterday–had to go early to warm up with the choir (he sang beautifully, btw)
is giving very long prayers at dinner, as she prays for each family member multiple times. At some point, hunger usually overtakes someone and they help her wrap things up!
is feeling happy that she survived the weekend without a nap and looking forward to more spring weather that will entice outside exercising.
is working on the tech crew for Narnia and excited to be a T.A. for this French teacher next year (he is getting a solid A in French!)
is always creating large dragons and other mythical creatures with multiple sheets of notebook paper and scotch tape. He is also working on cooking in cub scouts, which has produced some delicious treats for his family (note to self: post Taft’s recipe for raspberry muffins)
