Art Camp

Yesterday our Colson turned 11. And for some reason that seems a lot older to me than 10 did. Each year I try to write a birthday post for each kiddo because I don’t scrapbook much (I “do” the box-in-a-closet-method). And these posts have become a way of recording memories. Also because… Sometimes it’s important [Read More...]
