2015 Album: Wks 7-9

So I'm a little behind with posting these. Today I've got weeks 7-9 because week 8 had hardly any photos so I'm staying flexible and working with what I've got so I combined it with the first page of week 9.

What we did week 7: The Big Girl started school tennis for the year. The Little girl went on an excursion to Hanging Rock. In year 8 they study the book Picnic at Hanging Rock and dress up in period clothes for their own picnic at hanging rock. We went to Box Hill for the Chinese New Year celebrations. Riley was born. We had what I think was our last swim in the pool for the year.

The Pages: I started getting the kids to writes some words for some of their activities that I was not involved in. I think this will be a wonderful addition to our albums. The Little Girl wrote the words and took the photos for Hanging Rock. The first page is a large photo of our summer produce with a list of the veges we were growing.

What we did week 8: The Little Girl swam in the GSV PB meet for school and the Metroeast All Juniours Trials on the weekend. The Boy helped at his school picnic DJing and The Big Girl performed in her school house dance drama competition ... her house won!

The Pages: Once again I got the kids to write some words. I only had a few photos so I combined them with some from the next week.

What we did week 9: The girls had their school swimming house sports. The Little Girl swam at the GSV preliminary carnival. I had my first class for the semester. The Big Girl had her last tennis match for the season and The Boy went to a pool party at Watermarc. Hubby and The Boy went to the Avalon Airshow.

The pages: I included the odd photos and our weekly summary with week 8. Then I had two pages with photos from the airshow. The Boy provided a lot of the photos and the words.

Melissa, I love the clean, graphic look you have here here - so very stylish! I like the little titles for your mini-stories and wonder if I might scraplift? Such a neat idea.
