I have proof! Are my children listening? I am smarter than a 5th grader!

Downsizing is always tough. Getting rid of paper is tough. Scanning is preserving some of it. I am gradually doing this and printed words from the past that I find bring joy, sadness, and laughter. A marriage license, report cards, greeting cards with special messages, poetry someone wrote for me, photos from high school, notes from relatives no longer on this earth, and other items too numerous to list.

I found one page recently that I think I should have copied, framed, and presented to my children. They want me to downsize lots of paper but this one is a keeper! The younger descendants need to see this, too. Ah, but putting it on my blog means that they all get to see it at once and I can save on the framing. In the mode of full disclosure, my high school physics class grades did not put me in the top 1%!U of M 1965 letter

  1. That is wonderful and what a great memory. The scanning of documents will help some, but I also want to make memory books for my six children. Like you, I will probably wait to work more on this once we are moved. For now I am getting rid of the easy stuff and it is amazing how liberating this is. I am very grateful for children who are willing to help, but for some of this I just need to do it on my own.
