This is a great idea! I might have to do this with DJ, my 7 year old. It’d be a fun keepsake and even fun to scrapbook. I hope you don’t mind that your picture made my blog! 🙂 It was the only picture I took that night besides the one I had of myself with Kami. I wish I had taken more but everyone else did a great job of that. I’m looking forward to reading older posts on your blog about home schooling. I tend to be a very routine/organized person so sometimes I leave out the fun/spontaneous things that are actually the JOY of home schooling. So fun to visit the other night!
Love the picture of Linnea missing the front tooth. You have such great ideas Diana. Love the blog
