I recently found this blog where a group of photographers document evidence that their children were here.... a sippy cup on the table, a toy on the stairs, crayon scribbles on the walls. I just loved the concept. I have so much evidence of this in my home and I don't ever want to take that for granted. The trails they leave behind mean they are living, breathing heartbeats of this home. I couldn't help but take extra notice of it this week.
My favorite are half-eaten strawberries left on the chairs that I like to sit on.
I wanted to look beyond the messes. Yes, my son's room looks like a tornado hit it. But that's kind of the obvious stuff. I wanted to look for the evidence of their little personalities and what is important to them. That basketball cup is Dillon's favorite. That note that Ashley wrote is SO HER. She leaves notes from her heart like this all the time. I may have to document this again next month. It says a lot about who they are at this moment in time.
