Project Life :: Week 15

Hello, and welcome to Week 15. I'm catching up today, so there will be another post today soon with Week 16.
This week things were pretty much back to Everyday Life as we know it, with the new school term starting. The "Hello Everyday Life" card is a freebie by Ali found here on Becky's blog. I've been meaning to use it for a long time.
This week I documented: Me and the kids having our cereal together on the last day of school holiday. Each one having his/her own preference.... I also told the story of attending a VLU meeting with a friend. I'm not even sure what the correct English name is, Women's Agricultural Union? Something like the movie Calender girls, without the calender. We had such fun. (I hand-drew the "tuesday" around the card.)... Then some readingtime with the kids in their Teepee... And Reuben practicing for a chess competition on the computer (he was through to the next round). The original photo's colours came out terrible, so I  played with it on my Microsoft photo editing program and ended up with something that looks like a line drawing. Hmmm ok... The selfportrait by Reuben was done on a freebie found here.


This page documents : A brollie in our pool - Liam was walking outside with it, "forgot" about the pool, and fell in. I've recently been inspired again by this wonderful collection of foot photo's to take more "from where I stand" photo's as a way of telling my story...A star that came home on Liam's forehead. He gave it to me and ask that I put it in Project Life, on a nice picture, so I had to take one of him for the star to find a home... Our comfort creature, wire haired terrier, Basjan.... And some fun jellies I made for Sunday school. Our theme for the week was "colour". And boy did they look forward to those jellies at the end of the class. ..It also tells a little husband-appreciation story, and of our braai at friends ( I often forget to take photo's when we socialize). The heart card seems to have vanished from my PL freebie board on Pinterest. But the Milk & cookies one is from here.

And that's the week. Thanks for stopping by.

I'm using the Cobalt kit from Becky Higgins.
