project life – may 2012

week 18: this is the first week I got a chance to use one of the design G photo pocket pages. I used it for my pictures of from the baseball game. I’m going to go back and use some labels on those. I also have rethought the big handwritten, notebook paper log of our week. I’ve since started typing them up and printing them, either half size on 2 sides or full size on one side, depending on what else I have going in that week. I may go back and replace that. the only other thing of note is that I have a half sheet of 2x2’s for the instagrams. I just filled the first two columns of the page and then cut off the rest. mary convinced me to be ruthless about that, and I love the way it looks. I love the layers within the weekly layouts – how everything is not all the same size. 001002003 - Copy007 - Copy

week 19: pretty similar, except this week features the addition of the label stickers. I LOVE these. especially when all a picture needs is just a short little caption, rather than a whole card’s worth of story. I cut the instagram page again, this week, this time using 3 columns.009 - Copy011 - Copy

this is also the week we moved, so I had a lot of pictures from that. I used 2 of the design G pages. one for friday and one for saturday.012 - Copy014017

week 20: I only had 3 instagrams this week, so I just stuck those in here and there on 3x4 cards where they fit. 019021024

week 21: this week, dave was in california with micah, and I was here with the other kids. it made it a little more complicated to choose photos for each day, since we were both taking them.034036039

week 22: 2 columns of instagrams, a design G dedicated to a birthday party that layla attended on saturday, and the first typed and printed weekly log. I like this so much better. on the back side of that I have a drawing layla made which mimics tuesday’s picture005006007008

that’s may!

week 21 in pictures

sunday: dave and micah left early in the morning to drive down to california. dave’s dad was having surgery on monday.038

monday: micah wasted no time getting into the pool. he’s been planning his swimming and splashing and canonballs since he knew he was going.470897_10150853305973977_559448976_9633600_364946136_o

tuesday: went to the hospital to visit papa. he and gramma had a picnic in the courtyard. apparently there was a riddle on the side of the juice box that asked “what kind of apple isn’t an apple?” the answer is the the chunk of pineapple that gramma is showing him… he informed her that he hates pineapple. true.467953_10150853042403977_1385437781_o537524_3557612171848_1019058072_33247473_1888870312_n

wednesday: another track meet. shane did the same events as last week: 50 yard dash, relay, and long jump. came away with two 1sts and a 2nd (in relay).027028030

I’m also including a second picture for wednesday. I took this one while waiting for shane’s turn at the long jump and really hoping he would get done before this arrived:029

thursday: more sky, although significantly more pleasant. I was killing some time at the old house while waiting for shane to finish mowing the neighbor’s lawn (even though I should have been loading up stuff and cleaning there – but my back has been messed up all week, so I wasn’t), and was laying on the back deck, looking up.037

friday (or something like that): while dave was at the hospital, micah spent some time with sarah and her kids at gramma and papa’s house. they spent a good share of time swimming.398856_355322394520813_1631081401_n

saturday: our friends and former neighbors, susie and kevin, came for dinner. of course, shane had to show off the lawnmower and gave kevin a little lesson.061

and then I have a bunch of instagrams:
