Sadly as all fellow bloggers will know Kerry lost her fight for life on December 14th 2012, and so as a way of remembering Kerry TheBoyandMe has asked for any of us that are interested to join in with a blog hop as a way of showing Nick, her husband, that we have not forgotten her.
On of the linkies Kerry ran was
For those of you that read my blog, ‘family’ is pretty much the word that sums it up. It is literally about my family and what we do. It expresses the things we love doing, like days out, craft activities, cookery attempts, adventure, play ideas and things we like to read!
Family Frolics is a new linky that will come out every Friday and is aimed for people/bloggers like me who do not feel ‘naturally creative or inventive’ but enjoy creative and inventive things with the family.
Like Kerry my children were my world, and now they have grown up I have the pleasure of doing it all again with my grandchildren. I set up my blog so that when I am gone the children and grandchildren can look back and (hopefully) remember me and the things I did with them and for them with fondness. I am sure Nick gets some comfort from looking back at Kerry's blog and I love how he adds to it with photographs of the children enjoying themselves. I love to watch them as they grow, and had a wee tear in my eye at last weeks Silent Sunday but then had a chuckle at the last picture.
Love how Nick has put together a post of One Year On with the highlights and low spots that him and the children have been through since that tragic day. Nice to see them doing so well.
Our family frolics take many guises
