Monday Recap

I'm hoping to do a weekly recap every Monday. Just a quick glimpse into our daily lives through my Project 365 (in which I take a photo every day for a year) and a little narration of what's going on. I'm trying to find my niche in this world known as the "blogosphere". It's a bit daunting because I'm such a dabbler. I enjoy so many things and have so much going on at any given time that I don't know how to narrow things down into something that can be categorized. Maybe that's just going to have to be the way it is here... random, like my life. :)

School resumes after taking a month off for Christmas!

This year I'm hoping that by working on my Project 365 album every day that it will keep me motivated to stick with it. I'm loving putting it together and cannot wait until the end of the year when I can order it and have a daily record of our lives this year! It's just a simple template from blurb.com with the date at the top, a photo in middle and a caption at the bottom. No scrapping, nothing complicated. Just plain and simple and manageable.

As you can see from the last photo, we are just now starting up school again after a month long break for the Christmas season. Of course, things were learned in that time but our main focus was in learning about the birth of Christ, why God sent Him to be our Savior, and on creating, memory making and just all around fun having! Now it's time to start doing a little more worldly learning while still making the Lord Jesus our main focus every day. My goal for this year is to teach my children how to live for God and trust in Him. I have so much to teach them and it's daunting but exciting!

Anyway, thanks for catching up with my family. I hope this day finds you happy and healthy and full of joy!

Make each day count.


  1. Awesome! What would I do without the Internet? I love catching up with what's going on with you and your family. I miss you so much! Thanks for doing this, Ash.

  2. Some time in December I decided I wanted to do a project 365, but didn't give it another thought until now! HAHA! I'm a little too far behind to start now so, maybe some other year! HAHA! Nice update. Enjoy life!
