Hello. It’s been awhile, and a whole lot of laundry, but I am finally almost back to my normal routine. I was with all of these wonderful people (and then some) at Disneyland. What a fantastic trip!
This is my Aunt Holly with all of her nieces and nephews. I have a photo of this with my mom, too, surrounded by all of her grandchildren. I think it’s safe to say based on the smiles seen here that they all had a wonderful time. I haven’t had the energy or time to go through any more photos yet….I would love to say it has to do with jet lag–but I think it’s safe to say it has more to do with my age!!!
I am working on Project Life layouts for week 19, but it will probably be the weekend before I get them posted. I really didn’t take too many photos at Disneyland, I was too busy riding rides and having fun! I might have an extra insert/shutterfly page or I might not. Not too sure yet. I am working on week 20 simultaneously too. Boy do I NOT like being behind with Project Life. Throws my rhythm off completely.
I ordered Holly’s first batch of page protectors–some design A and some design F–as she is OBSESSED with scrapbooking. (Can’t say as I blame her right?) When I saw Becky’s post on how her 6 year old was using the PL system–I thought why not a four year old!? Little Holly can run the digital camera and iphone on her own…I am sure she can figure out how to decorate journaling cards and photos. My mom had bought her a scrapbook from Target this past winter and Holly LOVED working with it, but I wanted to get her something that was archival quality so that all of the work she is putting into it won’t go to waste. (The target stuff came with a glue stick and no page protectors.) The whole Disney trip she kept talking about taking pictures of this and that for “her scrapbook” so I figured it was high time I fueled the hobby for her. Her dad is going to be so excited. NOT. (Not that he doesn’t love the memory keeping, he sure does, it’s just the constant shopping he isn’t too fond of:))
Holly is definitely a “paper scrapper” right now, and that’s totally fine. I wish I could be….but it just doesn’t work for me. I will get my paper fix watching her! (I still have tons of supplies and tools so it’s nice to know it won’t go to waste.)
I think that will take up a majority of our summer to tell you the truth. I am trying to think of things we can do at home together since I will have a 2x a day napping baby…AND I think we are keeping her home from summer camp.
We did find out that Holly did NOT get into the neighborhood school’s pre-k program starting this fall, we are number five on the wait list. Looks like we are going to be going to Country Day for one more year. I LOVE her preschool, I was just getting excited to go somewhere FREE.
I think that about sums it up. I am exhausted–put together a stroller today, cleaned the refrigerator for the first time in a year, and did at least three more loads of laundry and two sinks full of dishes.
I really do need a vacation from my vacation. Disney is fun, but I think to really do it right you have to do a day on, day off sort of thing. Going everyday early in the morning, and staying til late every night wears you out…even when you DO all go back to the hotel for a 2-4 hour nap in the afternoon.
I will try to check in again tomorrow…..
