I'm doing two new family history projects this year.
One project is a-picture-a-day on Instagram. I write a family letter most every Sunday evening with the news, thoughts, and events of our week. This year, as I print and file the letters in a journal, I'll add the Instagram photos. Here are a few examples from this month:
|Ande used to do all of our ironing when she was in high school |
and I was busy. Today I returned the favor.
#ioweher #day5 1-5-15
|W'ere going to have neighbors 256 steps from our kitchen door.|
#wonthavetogofartoborrowsugar #day19 1-19-15
|This is not a throwback picture. No sir, that is me sporting my 1990's|
coat AND the price of gas in the reflection is 1990's gas prices --
a full gas tank for less than $24.
The pictures cover the routine that isn't necessarily recorded in the weekly letter and yet is a very real part of life. It's the easiest record-keeping I've ever done.
I'll share the other idea next week . . .
