I probably shouldn't be surprised since they are his sons, but it still blows me away that they are so much like him even though it's been five years since he died. Kobe was only 3 years old when Aaron died, so he really doesn't remember anything about Aaron or what he was like, but still he's so much like him.
Jay has gone through different stages and interests since Aaron died. First he was into Minecraft and gaming and making YouTube videos, then he was into superheroes and all the movies and things that go along with that, and even though he still loves watching superhero movies, he's now really into music and media and current events.
Jay decided he wanted to do up his bedroom as it had a lot of superhero stuff which he felt he didn't want anymore. He asked me if his Dad had any cool vinyls that I still had as he had an idea to put them into frames.
I still have all of Aaron's things. Some things including his clothes and shoes are in the garage, but his special clothes like his sport geurnseys, vinyl records and things he really treasured are in a blanket box in my bedroom.
Jay was so pumped about how it turned out, and they look so good in his room.
Harri loved that Jay had used something of Aaron's in his room, and asked if he could also use something. He went and looked through the box and pulled out some of the geurnseys.

Life is so busy again now that school is back, and the boys have started up with their sports. I'm sure my blog posts are going to be few and far between this year, but I still love to record my memories somehow.
At the end of last year my friend Makayla shared a video which she made with an app called One Second Everyday. I loved her video so I decided to do it this year.
These are our January and February videos. February wasn't half as exciting or as fun as January as we had to get back into school and work routines, but I'm still excited to see how the videos turn out as each month passes, and can't wait till I have a whole year's worth.
