There's a new challenge up today over on the Lasting Memories blog. It's the last challenge in this series and it's an Anything Goes with Life Affirmations theme.
I chose to do another gratitude layout. I apologize for my photos being so dark. I tried everything to brighten them up and this was as good as I could get. I've got a close up of the photos and if you click the photos you should be able to see them a little better.
Since Ada's Mommy teaches in the same school system as the boys attend, we pick Ada up every morning before school and drop her off every afternoon after school. That means about a 20 minute wait for us in the afternoon.
I have grown to love this time and I am going to treasure it - always! You see, this is when I get to hear all about Matthew's day. I get to hear about the frustrations with a class or with fellow classmates. I get to hear the excitement of an activity coming up or something particularly funny that happened that day. I'm sure if he had a long bus ride home - or even just a car ride home - that some of the excitement/frustration would have worn off and probably be forgotten about. But having 20 minutes in the close quarters of a car, I have learned a lot. I have learned how truly awesome Matthew is and I can see the young man that he is turning into and it makes my heart happy. I am so grateful to have this time spent with him. Next year he will be driving himself back and forth to school and I just hope we can find some way of continuing this.
Here's the close up of the photos:
He was actually acting goofy for the camera for once, so I had to keep them!
I used Simple Stories Life Documented papers and chipboard stickers on my layout. I thought the days of the week paper was quite fitting since we do this Monday - Friday and that little clock was the perfect accent!
I used the May 15 sketch from ScrapMuch?
My journaling is a little long and private, so I will stick that down behind the photos.
Be sure to stop by Lasting Memories and see the rest of the design teams creations. I look forward to seeing your creations as well.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
