warm welcome to everyone visiting from Ali's blog. So many beautiful examples of "A Week in the Life" albums were featured there yesterday and today.
I am still working on finishing my album.... all I need to do is add the journaling that I wrote down each day. I hope to do that in the next few days. Here are a few pages from the album as it is now....
Now for another week's worth of photos for my "Project Life" album. Not to be confused with my "Week in the Life" album! LOL! For this album, I am simply taking a photo a day and slipping it into a large 12" x 12" album and adding some journaling for each photo. I can't begin to tell you how much I am already enjoying this album~ a fabulous glimpse into our (very normal) lives right now. If I can do this, I'm sure you can. No time-consuming embellishments, just an emphasis on the photos and journaling.
Jon's eighth birthday. What a fun age! One of our quieter children, Jon is incredibly tender-hearted toward both his siblings and the Lord. Love watching him grow up, but physically and spiritually.
The boys discovered that they could race their little cars on the table in my herb garden (which really, really needs to be repainted!) They discovered that if they aimed carefully, they could drive the cars into the hole in the middle of the table~ what fun!
Believe it or not, this really was a light-hearted, fun family game of football here. Jacob looks incredibly intense, but Caleb is still alive and smiling. Having 9 boys in the family can make for some really competitive games!
Just to show you Jake's "other side"... I caught this picture of him climbing a tree. See? He *really* is nice, not as mean as he looks in the above photo!
An impromptu family photo. I decided that I needed a quick picture to go in the front of my "A Week in the Life" album. Everyone was so good-natured to gather-round for this picture. I put my camera on a tripod, set the timer then sprinted back to the deck to slide into place. We had several pretty funny pictures as I almost tripped over Great Dane puppy "Dude" trying to get into the photo before the camera "clicked!"
My roses are loving this spring weather....
Do you remember how fun it is to run as fast as you can down a hill? Jon and Dan were running as fast as they could here~ pure fun!
I decided to include this picture of Dan as well this week~ so cute! I sized it to go into one of the smaller "journaling" pockets included on each page. "Look Mom! Take my picture! A green and a brown egg!"

Thanks, Jessica, for hosting!
Have a wonderful Wednesday, friends!
