What began as a challenge to my students in spring 2000 to inspire them to fall in love with writing has turned into more than 10 years of writing my own weekly family updates. Brimming with enthusiasm after returning from a writing conference, I realized that I needed to model writing more often on a daily basis for my students and also publish my pieces of writing. I then challenged the students to take it another step and begin writing at home by keeping a diary or journal. Never having tried this myself, I was determined to show the students that it could be done. I began blocking out a couple hours every Sunday afternoon, and sitting down in front of the computer I reflected on what took place in my family during the past week. To my surprise, I found immense pleasure in doing so and it wasn't too long before I was hooked. I began looking forward to this bit of solitude each week when I could recall the ups and downs of Greiwe family life. This book is a collection of my first ten years of weekly family updates. All of the stories and information are true, but keep in mind that it is not a completely accurate picture of Greiwe family life. I decided early on that I wanted to focus my attention, as much as possible, on the positive things that were happening in the family. For the record, we have had just as many arguments, shortcomings, foolish mistakes, and missed opportunities as any typical family. However, I hope that by reading through these updates you will be inspired by the moments we experienced as a family - simple, yet important things that shaped the children's character and laid the groundwork for who they are today.
