In our current homeschool studies of Ancient Egypt, we’ve been talking about how historians are able to know so much about the people and customs of that time. We’ve discussed how the translations of hieroglyphs and the discoveries of buried artifacts have allowed them to put a picture together of what life was like. It’s been fascinating to study the Ancient Egyptian lifestyle because it was just so different from what we know now. It’s also been pretty amazing to see pictures of real mummies and all of the things that Egyptians thought were important to bury with them thousands of years ago. So, so interesting!
These history studies got me thinking about blogging. My writing has morphed a lot over the years, but I still have the same underlying goal as when I started a blog back in 2009. To tell the story of my children and our family life together. Storykeeping. My memory just isn’t the best at recalling all of the mundane details of our daily life. Sure, I remember the bigger I-want-to-burn-this-memory-in-my-brain-for-all-time moments, but I know there’s so much I forget. And it’s in those everyday moments that most of our memories are made. Thankfully, I am able to look back through my blog books now and relive the little, daily life moments over again too.
That’s why I snapped a quick picture of these beautiful yellow wildflowers that Angel and Lovebug picked for me last week. They were so pretty sitting on my kitchen window sill in a simple glass jar. I wanted to remember it forever. This season of life is so incredibly busy and these fleeting moments are simply too easy to let slip by. But this sweet offering from my children reminded me to slow down and enjoy the little moments. I want this one to be burned into my memory forever too!
