I'm going to be really honest right now. I made these layouts a week ago. I've been scrambling to get everything ready for homeschool and I've been so stressed out. I haven't scrapped for a single minute and I miss it like crazy.
I've also been bummed because someone made a nasty comment about homeschooling to me and it really got me down for a few days. I finally figured out that it wasn't my issue, but hers. I'm on my merry way to moving on!
Today was our first day of homeschool and it went pretty well. Only one massive meltdown by my resident nine year old perfectionist. I can't blame her. I'm a perfectionist too and I totally got why she was so upset. (I'm not so sure that this spelling program is going to work for her.) After a few hugs, she got back on track. I love my little diva! Alexis is at school today too and I'm really hoping that she does well. She got the Science teacher that she wanted and I'm praying that helps.
I'll have first day of school photos and other stuff tomorrow. Hopefully. (I still have to edit them.) For now, here are my latest Father Christmas Project pages.
1. Dear Santa Claus
The project above is a hodgepodge of leftover supplies. Now that it's finished, there are some things I wish I'd have done differently. I'm calling it done just because I have too many pictures left to scrap.
I like this layout a lot more. I kept it clean and simple to keep the focus on the hilarious photos. The nativity play at my grandparents' house always starts out very seriously but ends in craziness. For example, Joseph (AKA Christian) waving a flyswatter at baby Jesus (AKA Zachary) because he wouldn't stay in the manger. Sigh.
