The LAST day! Whew! I made it to the end. Everyone was really good sports about all my picture taking this week, but there were a several more sighs and eye-rolls when I brought my camera out on this last day. But I know how important this kind of a project is and how much it will mean to me - and all of us - in the future.
I pointed out to Scott that my first Week in the Life project includes photos of the boys (4 and 2) inside the shopping cart at Safeway, shopping at our tiny local scrapbook store, naptimes, Blue's Clues, and little snack bowls of Cheerios. All things that are no longer a part of our life. That's why I take the time to record these everyday details -- the Star Wars bedsheets, jumping the fence on the way home from school, piano lessons by mom -- because they won't always be a part of our everyday and I want to remember it.
After I have a few days to let this project simmer I'll move forward on compiling all the photos and some words into some kind of an album or book. Right now I am leaning toward a digital photobook via Blurb. I'll be sure to share the results when it is complete.
For Sunday I'm sharing just photos, no words. Yay for another Week in the Life documented. And yay for family, home, routines, messy rooms, laughter at the dinner table, good books to read, and smiles all around.

And yay for Ali Edwards' brilliant idea: Week in the Life.
