A little project I attacked with some vigour during this shortish holiday was digitalising our family archives – which basically entailed scanning our family pictures to my computer (I like hyperbole, okay). My dad and I share a soft spot for the family history and I have had nightmares of losing all the old files in some stroke of bad luck.
It was a bit of a tedious task as a lot of the old photographs is fragile and once scanned, they need to be cropped. Wistful finds such as these kept me going:
1962: Mom as a baby on her grandmother’s farm. It appears we have a liking for climbing into strange places.
1966: Dad as a little boy with his beloved dog, Fritz. Dad started blogging today, be sure to have a look!
