My blog has always just been a family journal and I often get emails from companies wanting me to promote things on my blog, but I'm glad that I've always just kept it as a journal. I know that if I made money from blogging or had received sponsorship for posting about things, then it wouldn't really be my blog. I would then feel like I had to talk about things I really didn't want to talk about, or would feel pressured to post more often.
There are times though when I feel like I no longer want to continue with my blog but then get anxious when I think in years to come I won't have our memories documented, as it's such a great way to just keep our memories in the one place. I think because I use Instagram so much now, that I don't think about blogging as well, as Instagram is such an easy and quick way to document and keep memories.
There's nothing worse than when I'm trying to take a photo on my phone and I get the message 'Cannot take photos, there is not enough storage'. I recently downloaded all my photos off my phone to free up some space, and saw lots of photos that I don't think I have blogged about, so will do a quick post to make sure I have them on here.
At the beginning of the school year I was asked by Aaron's old work colleague Fiona to speak in her year 11 and 12 Child Studies class. She used to get me to come to every year with Noah and after Noah passed away to talk to her Child Studies class, and when she moved from working at Aaron's old school I didn't think it would happen anymore, so it was nice to go again and talk about Noah, and what it was like to have a child with a disability.
Last school holidays Jay, Kobe and I went to the snow one day without Harri. He had just gone to a sleepover and doesn't cope at all with the lack of sleep, so we left him behind to catch up on some sleep as he kept saying he didn't want to go to the snow anyway. Not long after there was a lot more snow around Tassie again and because we didn't have soccer one weekend, I told Kobe and Harri to get ready quickly and we jumped in the car to find some snow (Jay had to work).
Because you usually have to go to the mountains or highlands to find snow in Tassie, it was awesome seeing the snow in the paddocks as we drove along the highway.
Kobe and Harri were so excited to get everyone to dab for a photo. Jalen was embarrassed that he had to lower his standard to be a part of it too :)
