4° F. It has been above freezing all weekend and we even celebrated another family birthday. My grandson, Gavin, had his 18th birthday yesterday! That is a special birthday for most. I can even remember looking forward to my 18th birthday. We had a wonderful meal in a nice restaurant on the Plaza in downtown Kansas City. Afterwards, we went back to my son's house for more family time and gift opening. It is so hard for me to believe my youngest grandchild is now 18 years old! It seems like he was just born a few weeks ago. I don't know how anyone else feels but I think grandchildren grow up twice as fast as your own children.

We have had a fairly relaxing day today. I am getting ready to start another scanning project. It is a goal of mine to scan all of my family's printed photos. I have a huge quantity of photos considering that we did not start taking digital photographs until around 2000. Add to that the fact that our family has always taken a lot of photos going all the way back to the early 1900's and even a few from the late 1800's. To complicate matters more, I also hope to write names and dates on pictures that are not identified. Last year I scanned about ten years worth of photos from when my boys were young. At some point I need to pick up from there but that is not what I'll be doing this time. I want to get all the really old photos scanned. Has anyone else taken on the project of scanning family photos? If so, I could sure use any tips you may have!
Have a great week!
