One of my new year's resolutions was to blog more. Well, here we are at the middle of January, and this is the first real post. My reasons for this resolution are pretty selfish. I want to do better at chronicling Adam's childhood. Someone once told me that in raising a child the days are long, but the years are short. I'm not sure about that yet. Adam will turn two next week, and I feel like we should be planning his high school graduation by now.

As a part of better documenting Adam's childhood, I am starting a new hobby: scrapbooking. Yes, I have resisted, but am now giving in to what the guys at church call a "cult." I went on a scrapbooking retreat last year and observed. (I also took my sewing machine so I could be in my comfort zone.) I thought that scrapbooking wouldn't be fun or appreciated since I have a boy, but a mother of two grown sons said that her sons' scrapbooks are very important to them. So, this year I will be going on the scrapbook retreat and actually scrapbooking. Many of my friends are shocking, but they have promised to take me under their wings. Although I haven't completed my first page, I have had fun organizing the stuff.

Another thing I learned last year is that scrapbooking can involve electronic gadgets. I had no idea there would be electronics. I considered "going digital" as many people are, but I spend too much time in front of a computer already. Plus, I have a friend who is going digital and gave me a bunch of her stuff! So, here I go on my cropping adventure!
