I have always kept this blog in the hopes that it would be a great way to look back on our life years from now. I've pretty much given up on it over the summer, though--partly because I doubted many people were reading anymore, but partly also because I just haven't made it a priority to sit down and write.
But the other day, I found Cosette and Eli sitting at the computer, laughing and smiling and reading.....my blog! The blog that I started when Cosette was just a teeny girl and her brother was a newborn....they were sitting there, going over all the old blog archives, laughing at the funny things, saying "Oh yeah, remember when....."
And in that moment, a smile came to my face. I was considering stopping this blog altogether and just remembering it as a nice thing in my past. But now I don't think I'm going to. It is finally starting to serve the main purpose that I always had in mind for it! It's helping my children recall all those important things and events that I took time to blog about in the first place.
So Cosette and Eli, if you're reading this now......I'm going to keep this blog up for you guys! Maybe years from now, you'll look at it and smile and remember when you were 'only seven and eight years old!'
I'm going to honestly make more of an effort to post more often, even if it's only tid bits of stuff. A picture, a funny quote, a 'day in our life', a recipe or a favorite meal.....all so that we can look back at it years from now and remember what life was like 'way back when......' I'm also hoping to use this space to chronicle our adoption journey over the next.......well, however long our journey ends up being :)
The rest of you are happy to read along as well :) I probably won't always post updates from Facebook, just because I don't want to be a pain to people.....so if you're interested in reading here about the Curtis family, just check back every now and then :)
With that said, I'll leave you with a couple of pictures of my littlest littles :)
