An Anniversary

This is us roughly 10 years ago:

Miracles then: Greg had finished his PhD (hallelujah!), we'd bought our first house, and had children who'd survived our parenting long enough to actually start school.

This is us today:

Miracle for today: Among others- such as having 5 children survive to start school and being done with post-docs and one semester from Greg finishing a Master's- I've made it 10 years (only missing a couple of times) of writing a family history every month. It's sent out in letter form to those poor souls we impose our lives on, but it's also printed and put in a book for each member of our family. For some reason it's easier for me to keep up with than a blog and there's a lot of joy satisfaction when we look back over the story of our lives.

I am blessed to make this journey with 6 pretty great people. Can't wait to see what the next 10, 20, or 50 years brings our way.

What a sweet family. You can see the personalities of your kids in the 2nd photo. Cute!

Good job on keeping up your family history!

It only gets better!! I have loved the past 10 years of my life.

And you are just like a movie star! You look cute in the first picture, but even better in the second! I always admire people who improve with age. I am not one of them.
