Marking Growth on the Kitchen Woodwork

Visiting my two families in Ohio, I noticed the pencil line markings with dates, documenting the grandkids’ growth. When my kids were young we moved around so there are no enduring pencil marks on an old door jamb showing how tall anyone was years ago and not sure why we didn’t do it in the house I’m still in now.

Photos Showing Growth

GROWTH– the Weekly Photo Challenge

And the grandchildren have grown even more since these photos were taken.

Except maybe Jack holding his Christmas present from his Grandma Marlene.  She takes the year of photos and creates a hardcover book for each grandchild. She makes one for the family, too, which is really nice to have the hard copies instead of a picture on a computer or phone.  A good way to document growth from year to year.
