Nearly half through the year and I have to say that I can't quite imagine not using Project Life to document our life. It's so easy and I've developed a little rhythm of working on it a little bit every day. I usually finish it up on Saturday or Sunday morning. One thing I've noticed it that if I don't have my camera nearby at all times, I don't always remember to take pictures. I have my iPhone handy, but I get the best pictures from the camera.
Mark has gotten really good at sending me photos regularly too. I like having his perspective of the events especially if I'm not there!
On the first half of the spread I included a picture Mark sent me from the soccer game he took Mia too. She got to meet one of the players and picked out a new stuffed animal. It's become a great "date" for her and Mark to do once a month. I snapped a few photos from a picnic we went to on Memorial Day and did a card to document how obsessed Naomi is with swinging.
Mark and I went to see Bon Iver and Feist this week and so I included an instagram of the big screen. The red card I made from cutting down a thank you card that a friend sent!

Mia was home this week and so we spent a lot of time having dance parties, playing the backyard, and preparing for her dance recital. It went a lot smoother than I imagined to have all three home. We also got our first CSA of the season this week. There were a lot of greens, fresh strawberries, turnips & radishes. This is our 2nd year at the farm and we are continually amazed at how good it is!
We discovered this week that we have a second robin's nest in the back yard. This one is higher up (smart birds) but when Momma Robin was gone I snapped a photo of the three perfectly blue eggs. It's been a real treat to get to see the nesting process up close!
And yup, that's Hollis in a Minnie Mouse dress. The girls wore fancy dresses for their indoor dance party and he wanted one too. Luckily, with two sisters, we are never short on fancy dresses!
|Quote from Agnes De Mille "To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. This power, it is glory and it is your for the taking."|
I wrote a letter to Mia about how proud I was of her performance at the dance recital. The foldable cards are perfect for hiding little sentimental notes.
