Week in the Life : AE Challenge

Week in the Life

A couple weeks ago now, Ali Edwards posted a challenge to take photos throughout one week's time and save little bits of everyday life (receipts, ticket stubs, scribbled notes, etc. Well, I had every intention of participating and I did the first couple of days and then things got busy and I missed some opportunities to capture some everyday normal things for every day throughout the week but I still wanted to play along and will...but this is my abbreviated version of one day last week anyways. A day, in the week of a life you could say! ;) Really simple format, random pictures and some highlights from the day are handwritten along the border of pictures. Can't wait to really sit down and work on the entire week...I think it would be fun to look back on this project a couple of years from now and see what's changed and what's pretty much (if anything) the same.

Crazy busy here lately...this morning I chaperoned Zoey's class for a field trip to the Fire Department and then to an area park for some play and snack time. It was so cool to see her interact with her peers and with her teacher, I'm really glad that I volunteered to do this and am looking forward to more opportunities to do so. This afternoon now I'm hoping to finalize my craft project for Mop's (this is for next Tuesday's meeting), right now I'm thinking something simple as my original plan isn't going to pan out just due to time constraints. I'm also hoping to register to vote this afternoon, this is something so important to me, this year more than ever. Then the plan is to head home to prepare some enchiladas for dinner. Tomorrow is the second annual Zoo Boo and we're meeting friends and are all going to walk through it together with the kiddos (this will be so much fun, last year Zoey had a blast!). Speaking of which, I've got to finish up some last minute costume details for Zoey's Wall-E costume (the eyes have proven themselves to be difficult). I also wanted to organize Zoey's closet, but we'll see how much time I end up having...some things just have to wait and I'm just fine with that!
