i fully admit, i am behind on my photo-a-day project. but i'm not that worried. maybe it's because i don't really think of my project life album as exactly one photo every day. as long as i end up with seven photos a week, i'm good. and sometimes, i take 14 photos in one week, to make up for days i missed the week before. it all works out in the end. yesterday, i took all the following photos. gives a good look at what is keeping us busy these days.
scrapbooking. and with scrapbooking, comes writing up assignments, typing instructions, blogging, submitting, invoicing, supply lists, and so much more. things are actually quite slow right now, coming off all the CHA craziness. but there is a new layout on my desk for next week ;)
i can't avoid it. tax preperation. i started sorting out receipts, so that i can go through and itemize them all. we actually have 3 small businesses set up between joe and i, so it's a lot of paperwork on my end. never joe. just me.
texting. that's what keeps sarah busy. alyssa's not really into the texting that much. but sarah could text all day. she got her cell phone taken away for too much texting, which ended up costing us one too many times. so now she uses her ipod touch to text for free.
alyssa's schedule for high school soccer, for february. they've been conditioning since january, and this week they're having the actual tryouts. they should be finding out who made the team either today or tomorrow.
joe's coaching gear for sarah's all-star team. the one soccer bag in the house, that doesn't reak of soccer stink. lol!
my stack of magazines and idea books is getting pretty big. this is when i know i need to weed through them. this is almost all scrapbook magazines and idea books. but there are a few rachael ray magazines, and gossip mags in there too. i'm pretty sure the gossip is old gossip by now, but i'll read it.
homework. the girls LOVE homework. NOT. lol! alyssa actually doesn't have that much homework, for being a freshman. or maybe it's that she just gets all her homework done in classes, after finishing her classwork. sarah's fallen a little behind on classwork for some reason. but she's worked her tush off this week, to get back on track.
sarah's schedule for january. which is still up on her white board. she even wrote down band and music, even though that's something she does at school. and ignore the "soccer game" on sundays. she didn't realize games were only on satudays.
the top shelf of alyssa's bookshelf. she has TONS of books, and she reads them all. some of them, she reads a few times through. she's a huge reader, and is keeping a running list of what she's read all year.
this is alyssa's music stand in her room. she was always balancing her music on her bed or the couch. so for 8th grade graduation, we got her a really nice music stand, and she loves it.
alyssa's schedule for dinner theater at church. the youth group puts on this huge performance each year. you go and have sit down dinner, they serve you, and put on a show for you while you eat. they've been working hard on it, and have tons of rehearsals. it's really hard to work some of them in with everything else she has going on. but she really enjoys doing it.
eleven photos, taken in one day, all at the same time. but in the grand scheme of the album, no one will ever know. the general idea of capturing our day to day life is totally there :)
