Project Life Week 21

This week marked the end of the school year. I won't lie and tell you that I'm not worried about the change in routine and the thought of having all three kids home. It definitely takes a lot of energy and patience. We do have a summer day camp to look forward to and I'm planning lots of day excursions and park time. Let's hope that I survive!

This is side one of this week's spread. I got a couple of pictures at Mia's field day. I also took pictures of some of the new blooms in the backyard, my juicing experiment, and my shadow on an early morning walk. My favorite photo is the one of Hollis in his pirate gear. Sometimes, I think the Target dollar section is the best place ever to get cheap treats for the kiddos. He got a hook, foam sword, and bandana for $3. The best part was that he wore the outfit for two days straight and went from looking like a pirate to looking like Tupac. 



Here is a close-up of the flowers. I printed the photos 2x2 and then rounded the corners. The letter stickers are from Lily Bee and still are my favorite thing to use! The rub-ons are the tiny alphas from Doodlebug.


Another close up of the prate get-up and of my sweet girl. 


 On this half of the spread I included pictures of Mark's birthday celebration. We decorated the dining room for him, made pizza, and opened presents. It was mellow---just how we like to do things around here. On the last day of school, we met up with friends for ice cream. I included some pictures of all of them enjoying their cones. I took a picture of Hollis on our walk around the ponds and also of the baby ducks we saw!


On this picture of Mia I took a journaling card from Jillibean Soup and cut it down. Then I rounded the corners and sewed it on. I should have used a darker thread because you can't really see the loopy pattern, but in real life it looks pretty cool. 

At our favorite walking spot this week there were a whole slew of baby ducks. It got a little scary because they had no fear at all. The whole gaggle came right up to us and surrounded us. The full grown geese got a little aggressive thinking we had bread and we ended up having to pick up the kids and carry them down the path a little ways. I got a few pictures of the smallest bunch of goslings. 
Supplies: black Sharpie paint pen, jillibean soup letters
 Naomi has gotten braver in the water and been "swimming." I loved how bright her eyes looked surrounded by bubbles!
