Remembering Childhood

Letters, Short Stories, Poems, Schoolwork, Cards, Memorabilia...
This is the smile my son had when looking at the things I'd saved from his childhood. 
It was so fun to remember! I'm glad I kept them for him to have now, and to remember.
We even found his old basketball uniform, an "Indian" shirt he'd worn for Thanksgiving 
when he was little, and some baby quilts. One quilt had blocks of gingham dogs 
and calico cats appliqued with tiny stitches and then an embroidered inscription 
to him on the back of it. And it's in "like new" condition because 
I hadn't really used was hung on the wall of his nursery.
