OBSERVATIONS: Okay, maybe looking at this first shot, you're thinking, "Peeshaw! 88 ain't no heat wave!" But people, I am here to tell you that it got hella hot in Minnesota last week and continues this week as I type. For reals. Heatwaves notwithstanding, last week I struggled to find pics for the album. In fact, looking at the spread itself, it's visually one of my least favorite weeks. Isn't that terrible? That real life didn't provide the perfectly coordinated spread in Project Life?
Of course, I jest. But I am serious about not being in love with the images I got this week. Not through and through, anyway. And I think that's going to happen when you're documenting 52 weeks in a row. Shall we take a look-see?
Maybe part of it was because my lovely daughter was gone all week at Musical Theater Camp (ergo the two photos taken at the camp showcase.)
One thing I loved from last week was how Cole customized his swim pass card. I gave him a key ring and he found a picture of Aquaman to complete the look. That boy is nothing if not completely focused on the details that make something totally awesome.
I took a few more screen grabs from my iPhone (hold down the Home button and hit the On/Off button on top of the phone at the same time until you hear a shutter click sound and voila, you have a photo of your phone's screen). I love the Find My Friends app. It'll track anyone you have added to your list, anywhere in the country, and show you exactly where they are. Dan thinks it's stalkerish, and Aidan won't add me as one of her friends. Still, it's pretty cool for a mama who likes to know where her flock is.
And here's the weekly recap:
Now if you'll excuse me, me and my hot flashes are going to sit near the air vents in my house, and not move for a few solid hours.
