Sorting Photosby Angie

Since we learned that one of the adoption application requirements is to make a photo collage, I have procrastinated, whined, and avoided to the fullest extremity. I finally decided  two days ago that it was time to jump in and start. “Starting” happens to include actually finding pictures of us to use in the scrapbook, so yesterday I began to collect, consolidate, and sort every single picture we have on the four hard drives in this house. I spent eight hours solid staring at a computer screen… clicking, dragging, typing, comparing, renaming, deleting, etc. etc. etc. I ended up with a headache that has persisted through the night, but have brought our photo usage space down from 14 gig to about 10!  I’ve also found lots of great pictures to use, as well as several videos that I had forgotten we ever made (lots of those are on facebook now).  I’ve included some of my favorite photos here for your enjoyment (click on each pic to see the full version).  Sorry they’re pretty random, and that I haven’t successfully figured out how to do captions!
