Having this past week off gave me an opportunity to catch up on Project Life. As of today, I am completely up to date … with this year’s album, that is. Last year’s album still has plenty of holes … but I’m not going to stress out about it.
I really tried to cut down the number of inserts to keep Project Life 2012 to two volumes … but am finding it somewhat challenging. With that being said, I’m onto Volume 3 (October – December).
Here’s a look at Project Life, Weeks 40-47.
Week 40 :: Sept 30 – Oct 6
Samuel got a potty this week but we are NOT potty training yet. I am NOT ready.
We got into a car accident — Samuel was in the car so he received a letter from Mercury Insurance stating that he was in a car accident. Jim put the letter aside thinking that I’d want it for Project Life. It isn’t something that I want him involved in but it is a first …
Week 41 :: Oct 7 – Oct 13My mom, brother and I saw President Obama in San Francisco. Samuel calls him “Bama.”
Samuel got his first stuffed horse from his Uncle. He named her Jess. He now calls her Jessie.
Week 42 :: Oct 14 – Oct 20Nike Women’s Marathon weekend in San Francisco.
While I was out running with my sisters, Samuel was at home with Jim doing what boys do — bike, wrestle, bounce, laugh, and build Lego structures. I didn’t run my best Half but enjoyed my sister’s company.
Week 43 :: Oct 21 – Oct 27Samuel’s picture appeared in Sacramento Magazine. He and I were at a Sacramento Flash Mom Cash Mob event to support local businesses. Surprisingly, he let Michelle Krebaum photograph him.
Week 44 :: Oct 28 – Nov 3Samuel finished breakfast and decided to be my page turner. He loves looking through my Project Life binder — he loves seeing images of himself. He goes through and identifies each person by name and says what they are doing with him. He also imitates himself — it is quite a spectacle!
Week 45 :: Nov 4 – Nov 10
Samuel turned 21 months this week. President Obama was re-elected. And the San Francisco Giants won the World Series.
Week 46 :: Nov 11 – Nov 17He is rather curious about the girl in the photo. He points to her every time.
So many things to be thankful for this week: A play date with mamas and their beautiful babes. A dance party with my boy. A Samuel + Mama date at the park. Jingle Bells arrived at our house (he asks for it everyday now). A Friendship Feast with my boy at his school. Running the Turkey Trot with my students (and passing many of them up). And a fun birthday celebration with trampolines and foam pool!
Week 47 :: Nov 18 – Nov 24 (Thanksgiving Break)Great week. Spent the weekend at my mom’s. Samuel loves time with my brother.
Santa Shoot. He refused to wear the Santa Suit … until I told him that I’d send the pictures to his Uncle. Then he agreed and named some other family members he wanted me to send photos to.
He wasn’t so into coloring the Thanksgiving Turkey — it’s an insert from our local newspaper.
We had a fantastic play date on Wednesday. Samuel was quite the host and amazing sharer.
Thanksgiving dinner at our house. We had the usual suspects and ate very well.
