trying something new...

I'm trying something new that I've never done before. I'm going to take this class. I have stories really worth telling one way or another. They aren't necessarily something i want to scrap. Or maybe they are what i want to scrap. Or... whatever. I just need a means to a way of getting it out of my head and capturing it on paper.

There are a few reasons behind why i want to do this. Actually there are three main reasons why i want to.

1. it's free. that is always a great incentive to do something that i would normal just kinda pass by.

2. there are so many stories out there and in my head that i feel need to be written down or recorded in some way. I don't want these things to be forgotten. From stories of my three little ones to things they've said and I'm slowly forgetting them. And that just breaks my heart.

3. I watch my FIL ailing and go downhill slowly day after day. I see my dad interact with my kids the way we never got to with him. I see in the influence the my MIL has had on DarRell that has slowly made its way into our lives. I see a different side to my mom that I've never seen before. And seeing how my children adore their grandfather and grandmother Payne and grandma and grandpa Mac (and numerous other relatives), I've decided that now is the perfect time to capture it all... before it's too late. I don't want any of us to forget them.

This actually couldn't have come at a better time in my life. I'm excited to get started.
