Photo Meme

I've met some really great ladies through their blogs lately and one of them was doing a photo meme. I told her I'd play along and see what I could come up with. I know I did one of these not too long ago, but well, time has passed and I've taken a lot of pictures since then! And that was the 4th folder, 4th picture and this isn't! :) So here we go...

Here are the rules:

1. Go to your Picture Folder on your computer or wherever you store your pictures.

2. Go to the 6th Folder and then pick the 6th Picture.

3. Post it on your blog and tell the story that goes with the picture.

4. Tag 5 other people to do the same thing and leave a comment on their blog telling them about it.

Here's my picture:

This is one of William's masterpieces he painted at school. The first semester, I hung every picture that he brought home, on the walls in his bedroom. We ran out of room by Christmas and it was about that time that I heard a great idea for keeping and organizing your kids' artwork. It was actually from the Oprah show, although I didn't watch it; I heard about it from my sister-in-law since they were doing a free photobook giveaway, which I ended up using for William's birthday pictures. Anyhow, instead of hanging onto every picture that the kids bring home, take a picture of it and then at the end of the year, make the pictures into a photobook! Like I totally should have thought of that on my own, but apparently someone else did and is probably making bookoo bucks because of it. Oh well.

The pictures that William finger paints are especially special to me because he has some sensory issues and does not enjoy having his hands "dirty." The fact that he's overcoming it and has actually made some pretty pictures is so amazing! We are so thankful and proud of the strides he's made this year! So, even though this isn't one of his prettiest pieces, it's still very special!

So, that being said, I know I can always count on Angela to come up with a cute picture and Katie too. And I'm going to tag Annie, Alison, and JanMary, just in case they come across this and want to dig up a cute picture to share!

Anything your children do are special treasures, but for William I'm sure it's even more so. If you don't cry I will for you.
