Our week was an adventure. (I knew it would be a busy week with Halloween falling on Friday.) Our week included lots of costumes, spending lots of time with our family, and unfortunately a family emergency.
I printed 69 photos. 66 of them are 3x4 photos and 3 of them are 4x6 photos. I took all the photos with my phone. While I was editing and printing I was wishing that I had taken a few photos with my DSLR but it was such a busy week I forgot to grab the big camera. At times taking photos with my phone was a challenge.
My process for printing the photos went like this (it's probably not the most efficient way but it worked this time): At the end of each day I emailed all the photos for that day to myself. I then saved them to my computer in a file with the name of day that the photos were taken. I could have just printed them directly from my phone but I don't have an app that will print a 3x4 photo. If you know of an app that will let you print different sizes, let me know.
I didn't print my photos until the end of the week. At the end of the week I was able to print all the photos easily. After I printed them I sorted them into envelopes according to the day they were taken. Then I tackled the project of putting them all together. I made a 3x4 card with the name of each day on it as a marker of the beginning of the day and added the daily log of our activities.
Here is what my finished album looks like:
On Monday morning I actually forgot that I was supposed to be documenting and taking pictures. Oops, I had to backtrack a little bit.
On Tuesday I ended up with more journaling than photos. So there's a lot more reading to do on this spread.
On Wednesday we had a busy busy day getting ready for the kids Halloween parties at school on Thursday. We ran lots of errands and took lots of photos. There wasn't a whole lot to say other than what I'd already written down on the daily log.
Thursday was the hardest day of the week. I got an emergency phone call from the school just after I had dropped my kids and my nephew off. It was a day filled with unexpected doctors visits and everything was completely out of our routine. It was also the day of the week that started the earliest for us. We were all up and running by 6:00 AM...that's a LONG time before we usually up.
Friday was Halloween day so there are LOTS of photos. The kids were out of school and we spent the day having fun with our extended family.
Saturday was our most boring day of the week. It was rainy and cold outside, I wasn't feeling very well so we stayed close to home and didn't do anything super exciting. So there are not many photos.
Sunday we spent going to church and with our extended family. I love lazy Sunday's when I get to hang out with my nieces and nephews. It's seriously my favorite! That's why Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, it's a day to just be with family. It helps that I have the most adorable nieces and nephews on the planet. I'm a lucky Aunt!
And that's a wrap for my Week in the Life project. I love how it turned out. It's always a lot more work to pull everything together than I think it will be. I do love the pocket page scrapbooking method of documenting our week.
