A goal accomplished

Let’s see…

On October 1st I committed to writing a blog post every day for an entire month. I wrote my first-ever blog post on July 10, 2008.

This week’s challenge brought to mind this photo from a few weeks ago. We were visiting family in Grandma Mira’s backyard and L was having fun creating his own little hiding place with the lawn chair.
