Ok guys and gals, I have hit the wall. I have reached the mark. . . . . I have successfully used up all of Blogger / Google's free space to blog. I had to purchase more space last night and wait for it to hit my blog before I could continue. Can you believe it? When I started blogging three years ago I figured you couldn't ever use it all up. I guess all free things run out. So we will continue on with a new subscription to space as google calls it. I enjoy my blog and the ability it gives me to record my family and our journey together in life. I especially LOVE how I have now began the adventure of printing my blog on a yearly basis. It is kind of my new way to scrapbook "us." Once Max started crawling I found it difficult to pull out my closet worth of scrapbooking material. He wanted in it all. I also couldn't bring myself to drop him off with the babysitter to come home and scrapbook. It felt like the two collided. . . .take him to someone else to care and make memories with while I was alone scrapbooking other memories. So scrapbooking lacked while I struggled to figure out a balance. Then our dearest friends began their calling as missionaries at a college campus in Mexico. Amanda came up with the brilliant idea they we could all blog to keep up with each other's daily life. So blogging I began and now I continue as it has answered my dilemma of recording our life. I can quickly download pictures and type up thoughts of the day while the kids nap. I don't have to worry or be stressed about paper, scissors, markers, and stickers. I do miss those days because I love to be crafty, but for now this fits. Sometimes I will slack and play catch up with blogging multiple events at a time, but it eventually gets done. Well, that is my story and now I have to get back to making use of my yearly subscription to "space." Ha! Hope you enjoy and much as I do!
