WFMW--Measuring on the wall
One of my favorite things about my house is that as soon as we moved here I started measuring everyone on the wall. This was before Asa and Millicent, and before our foster children. Jeff's sister and her family were here so I got them on there too.
I've been able to watch everyone's growth on the wall. Now we weigh them and put their weights up too.
It's so neat to look at the wall and see that my nephew, Mathan, was a tiny bit shorter at five than Kati was. Or that my nephew, Aidan, and Millicent were the exact same size at three. It's fun to see Kati and Kori are almost always the same size at the same age.
I remember growing up my Papa marked our heights on their garage wall. It was so special to me. My aunt marked them on a doorway. Now we just found a smallish wall and use it. What would we do if we moved? I don't know. But that wall is special to me and all the kids who have ever been marked on it. They LOVE to see how much they've grown and how they compare to everyone else.
What about you? Do you have a wall for measuring? What would you do if you had to move?
Don't forget my giveaway....it's still open until I get around to drawing a winner later today. SpongeBob
