Here's a picture I took the other night of Zach laying on the couch. He was looking at his postcard album (I have to buy him another one because we've used up all the slots in this one.... THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!), studying his scorpion (which was sent by Alyssa), and keeping his bug net nearby (you know, in case there might be any bugs around).
I don't often get pictures of Zach looking directly into the camera. He's shy of the flash sometimes. He's also missing his two top teeth......isn't he just the cutest???
I just updated the list on the sidebar this morning with 11 more postcards. Zach got an envelope from my grandmother the other day with a pile of postcards from Germany (my grandmother immigrated to the US back in the 1950s and has been spending part of her recent years in Germany with her siblings and other relatives). What was so special about these postcards is that some of them are postcards that have been sitting in her stash for YEARS.....some are postcards that she's received from relatives over the years. But two postcards that are precious to me are postcards that are old, black and white, a little on the faded side and bent. One has a photo of the town where my grandfather grew up and the other is an aerial view of where my grandmother grew up. That she would take these out of her stash and send them to my son means a lot to me. I'm just as fascinated by these postcards as my son is.
Thank you again for being a part of this project with us! You've all truly been a blessing to us!
