Austin came home from school with a bunch of papers in his backpack.

Every Monday, the kids in his class write down what they did over the weekend. So he had a few of these pages.

Among them, I found one that talked about the Terry Fox run that I participated in a few weeks ago. It said: "My mom won a race. My mom was happy. My mom told me. My dad took pictures. I like mom."


Isn't that the sweetest thing?

I asked him if I could keep it. He said yes.

I thought: "I want to keep this forever, but how will I remember to what it was pertaining?"

Then it hit me-- make it a part of a scrapbooking layout.

So I did:

And look, he even drew me at the bottom with Cameron taking my picture-- and my hands are up!
