The Past

I convinced my mom and my dad to get a Mac computer. I feel so proud. :) My mom has over 5,000 photos and believe me, you can't send that many pictures by email or transfer them with a flash drive. I called Apple, desperate for help and there was this really nice lady telling me that I could use my iPod. So, I transferred all 5,000 of them, safe and sound. I noticed that my mom had so many photos that I hadn't seen in a while so I transferred about 1,996 of my mom's photos to my computer. Here are some of them from a long time ago.

Annabel and I before one of our first concerts. Feel the fear, people!

Little Shawny at about three years old. 
He's just about to throw a stick in a pond nearby and just almost make a swan really mad.

Annabel and I singing in a park for some of our relatives.

My family and me in a hotel before going to see Amma.

 
My adorable little cousin Emma and me. We were discussing an art project.

Best friends forever and always.

 
Annabel being adorable!

Here we were fighting over a hammock. 
Kind of a dumb thing to be fighting about but hey, it was really comfortable.

My best friend Alizee and me before she moved away.
Miss you a bunch, buddy!

But the past was then and this is now, and it's hard to believe I was ever so young and how different we all were. All of those things, the good and the bad, all taught important lessons and led me to this day, happening just the way it was meant to be.

Thanks for the recording program advice, Skylar. I'll try to download it on to my PC, as we don't have Apple... how cool that it's free! My boys' blog is at http://chasandsam.blogspot.com/
Isn't it great to find old pictures that you haven't seen for a while?

I LOVE the changes you made to your blog! I'm in awe. You have amazing talent when it comes to design and photography. Also, you're very resourceful! So, basically, you transferred the photos from the old computer to your iPod and then to the Mac?
