Great post! :)
What a fun idea to record the sounds of the day. Right now mine would be "drip, drip" the sound of Sam playing with water in the sink.

6:30 am presidency meeting? If that isn't magnifying your calling, I don't know what is.

The current sound in our house is the Fisher Price Nativity playing "Away in a Manger." (Emma wouldn't let me put it away with the rest of the Christmas decorations).

This is such a great way to document life. I am filing this idea away to use sometime on my blog.

I am super impressed by the 6:30 presidency meeting...what a smart way to work around schedules!
