Once I had them all sorted I filed them by year.
I've only scrapbooked my 16 year old's first 2 years of life so you can imagine the amount of pictures I have.
I tried the best I could to separate them by year.
This was not easy. None of them were labeled.
I ended up sorting a lot of them by the size of the boy's teeth...
Missing front teeth 2000
2 Permanent Buck teeth on top--2001
4 Permanent teeth on top--2002
In 2005 he grew his hair out like a girl so that year was easy.
He had braces and the same haircut for almost 4 years so those were tough to sort through.
I figure organizing these pictures increased the odds of them making it into a scrapbook by 50%.
I thought today would be a good day to move on to
THE SIX W's
An ideal homemaker realizes that many of life's choicest blessing are gained only through hard work and therefore accepts work as a challenge and an opportunity rather than a burden.
You'll recall that we discussed THE TWO A's and another A (Attitude, Appearance, and Ambition) as essential factors in homemaking. Here is another magic formula for success:
THE SIX W's: WORK WILL WIN WHEN WISHING WON'T!
I've been wishing for years to have my scrapbooks up to date.
It's time I got to work.
