School is out! The little dude graduated from 5th grade and is now officially going to middle school. To celebrate, I am currently conducting a social media experiment. We had a crappy school year and everyone ended the year with a lot of stress. A LOT of stress.
So, to celebrate, but also to see what would happen, I took away all limits on screen time for the kids for one week. And, if you know me, this is a BIG deal. I had a couple of theories about what would happen and I'll share those when the week is over.
The other experiment I started this week was to start running again and give up chocolate at the same time. I'll give you one guess as to how that is going.
Hard to believe but the school year is finally over. Unlike most other school years, this one seemed to drag along forever. We're all so relieved that it's over and truly hoping to find a lot of time to relax.
I love to look at everyone else's first and last day photos so I hope you'll indulge me by looking at mine. My kids all seem taller, thinner, and wiser. Wish that happened with adults!!! ;)
Andrew will be moving on to middle school next year, Libby will be in 8th grade, and Emily will be a junior. Wow!
I’m still plugging away on 2013’s Project Life! Only three months left to go and then I’m done. I wasn’t planning on doing PL for 2014 but I’m reconsidering. It’s just sooooo much easier to get it done now that I’ve moved to a digital format. And now that I’m working from home. But we'll see. The kids are out of school after today and that will definitely change my schedule.
Here’s September’s layouts – only 3 pages. I really like paring it down to something this simple and short but it’s very hard to do. My brain tells me that not all the photos need to go in the album but heart can’t choose between them. It’s agony sometimes. Okay, not agony. It’s just scrapbooking. But it feels like agony making the cut.
I'm a digital scrapbooker who still plays with paper sometimes, a photographer, and a quilter. And I am not allowed to find anymore hobbies! I'm also married with three kids and I used to be an attorney before I entered the land of SAHMs. Currently, I'm stuck in the midwest and dream of returning to the coast of Maine one day.
