I started taking digital photos when my first grandchild was born in January 2003. For many years, as we traveled, and as we visited our grandchildren in Colorado, or they came to see us, I had photos printed and put into albums. The photos were also stored on CDs. From 2007 to early 2011 we stored photos on a previous hard drive and saved them all to an external hard drive in 2011. I always planned to sort and cull those photos before we dumped them from the hard drive to the external, but never got it done. They are a mess, with duplicate shots and unimportant stuff and categories the don't always make sense. Someday I may get to sorting them out, maybe.
That is also the case for the photos currently on the hard drive, dating from 2011 to present. This month I began the process of culling and editing and regrouping them into a more sensible order. In doing so I have been smiling a lot as I remember fun times, work projects, and especially visits with the grandkids.
Are you ready for some cuteness?
Jill and her family were still living in Colorado in the spring and summer of 2011, but they always came to visit in June and again in August. They stayed with us and we had all kinds of adventures, both at home and away.
We did a lot of pretending in our garden at the Reeder Homestead.
Kids grow up fast. I am watching that happen in speeded up version as I sort through these photos. Such fun.
