A Precious Keepsake

Today marks the end of week two of homeschooling.  My little sponge is just sucking up every bit of information he can and running with it.  My refrigerator is decorated with things he's drawn, colored, or glued.  And it makes me nostalgic already knowing that there is no way I'm going to be able to save every single thing he makes.  In just two weeks his work has overtaken an entire filing bin.  It's unrealistic to think that I can keep them all but I just can't stand the thought of his little creations not being saved.

Then it occurred to me.  This is what I do.  There's no reason that I can't save my favorites so that they won't be messed up or fall apart with age.  I picked out the ones I loved the most (his first stick figures, his first smiley faces, and his own handwriting scratching out his name) and scanned them into my computer.

I pulled them up in photoshop and fit them onto one of my washer templates.  I had a pile of washers that needed to be made for my shop so I added it to the batch.

This morning I woke up to something I know I will treasure forever.  (Side note, it doesn't look all splotchy IRL.  I took this picture in super dim lighting since it was 6am and had to expose the poo out of it to get it to show up on film)
