I love searching through my files and finding something I had forgotten about. I ran into some treasures last night and thought they would be perfect to share on a Memory Monday.
Watercolor by my daughter Riley. She was 11 when she did this. Isn’t it beautiful? It makes me want a big tree with a swing!
A drawing by my son Alex. He was 14 when he drew this. I’m not exactly sure what the scene is about, but I can tell it’s his Nintendo DS. I like the detail of it. Drawing is a little harder for him, so I really appreciate the few pieces I have from him.
A note from my daughter’s preschool teacher. This was written when Riley was 3 years old.
A note from one of my son’s Kindergarten teachers. We got a note almost every day when he was in the autism program. I saved most of them and I still need to scan a ton of them.
A birthday card for my daughter’s 4th birthday that was painted by my Mother-in-Law. The painting is of my Sister-in-Law’s Great Dane puppy.
I love that we have several of these types of documents.
A restaurant ad I saved from my study-abroad trip to England in 1989. I wish I had saved more memorabilia from that experience!
Now I’m totally in the mood to dig out some boxes of stuff to scan! These are the types of things I want to be able to include on my scrapbook layouts. These are the memories I want to share and remember. What a great activity for a Memory Monday!
