Snapshot #97: Baby Album: My Many Early Interests!

Posted on: March 3, 2017

Four years ago, I joined Saturday Snapshot. The meme invites bloggers to share photos. One of my new year’s resolutions was to create a memory scrapbook from my childhood. I intend for the project to be a work-in-progress, where I mostly post in order of scanned photos. Last month I posted about my first introduction to dogs. Next up in my trip down memory lane are photos that show my potential other interests.

Ah-ha! I liked balls. Could sports be in my future? Not a chance! Unless I can win awards for the most times I throw or hit something in the wrong direction. 😉


Still, there’s plenty to indicate that I liked to be active. Here I am getting around in various modes of transportation. None of them explain why I waited until my twenties to get my driver’s license. Maybe I’m just a late-bloomer. Turns out, that I’m also a homebody and so more often than not you’ll find me at work or at home.




I also enjoyed a good swing set. What kid doesn’t? 😉 Maybe when combined with the second photo, it shows I liked the outdoors. If so, this still holds true!



Or maybe the second photo shows that I liked having friends. Perhaps that would explain my interest in phones. 😉 Or maybe it revealed an early interest to talk? My husband would agree! Today I put my verbal “skill” to good use, not only to network with volunteers for animal rescue but also to put words to paper and screen.

I love your adorable photos! With your tricycle, car, and horse, looks like you had lots of transportation options. My son had a “horsey” similar to the one you’re riding in the photo with the fern in the background. He loved it.

At times, looking back at these photos feels odd to me. I don’t remember any of these toys or the last time I’ve seen any of them. I know that I eventually had child bikes and other play phones. Even those though are vague memories. It’s really interesting seeing the difference in the people, including myself, as we all mature.

Books can take connect us with strangers, take us to unique places, and introduce us to new ideas. They can also offer hope in a chaotic world. And so I must share what I read!
