January Recap

Several years ago at Christmastime, Kelly and his siblings decided to start a new gift tradition: scrapbook pages for his mom & dad. So every year we do a "family" page and each of the kids does a page as well. Every year at the beginning of December I start thinking about what to include on our page.....and every year I think, "I should have jotted down our activities/accomplishments/etc. as we go"....it would make things so much easier. Thank goodness for the blog---it has been helpful to go back and look through the year to see what we were each up to. But that, of course, takes a lot of time. So this year I'm going to attempt a quick recap at the end of each month. (Then I'll only have to look back at 12 blog posts.)

Here goes.....

*played his new Didj gamesystem
*wrestling practices 2x/week and tournaments on the weekend
