Today I'm posting Week 19 of Project Life. Week 18 was the week we went to Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom and I'm pleased that I finished those 22 Project Life pages last night. Whew! If you would like to see these PL pages, you can click here and right click through them. If you want to see just the photos of our vacation, you can see Magic Kingdom here and Animal Kingdom here.
Even with all the time I've given scrapbooking the past two weeks, I still have to say that I love the Project Life system. I'm pleased to be caught up. Now on with Week 19! You can click on the photo to view the credits.

Jump: Look at that jump off the diving platform! Kylie started swim lessons again at Planet Swim this week. She has a new coach--Jack, originally from Australia. Kylie swam beautifully!
Seriously? Uh-oh On Wednesday morning, my running Forerunner 205 wouldn’t start. In an act of desperation, I put my iPhone in my hydration belt. I mourned my Forerunner for the entire run. At the end of my run, I turned off my iPhone. But then it wouldn’t re-start. I freaked out. My iPhone & my Forerunner were broken?! Did my computer have some virus attacking my gadgets? Had I sent out some strange magnetic pulse that fried them both? I panicked at the thought of replacing both. Fortunately my Forerunner reset. But my iPhone was toast even though it hadn’t gotten wet or sweaty. So I got a new iPhone 4S. That is so not the way I like to make new technology purchases!
Glee: Sight Word Slap is a new fun card game we’ve taught Kylie. It has the added benefit of teaching her to recognize some words like come, blue, is, the and so forth without having to sound them out. She loves slapping the cards and winning!
I love how this second page came out! I think this week was one of my favorites.

Thursday was the Mother’s Day Breakfast at Kylie’s school. Kylie had made two scrolls--one for me and one for Momma. The scrolls were questions the teacher had asked Kylie and Kylie’s responses. I’ve attached them here in the scrapbook and they are simply marvelous! Kylie also gave us a small glass bottle with two rolled-up pieces of paper. One said to Momma Karen: Thank you for replacing the batteries in my flashlight and playing flashlight games with me. The other said to Mommy: Thank you for taking me to the pool. Both of them were written in Kylie’s best handwriting. What a delightfully tender and sweet Mother’s Day gift!
After the breakfast I got to watch Kylie do some of her schoolwork. Here she is showing me the way she uses the stones to complete her addition sheet. The green stones are symbols. So here we have 1 + 5 =. I’m also proud of how Kylie is corectly holding her pencil.
Summer Life: Lots of Summer moments this week. We bought a gas grill and had our first FL cookout. Kylie got her first sunburn on her cheeks and those cheeks peeled all week (filling me with guilt!) And Kylie had her first ocean swim of the season (slathered with sunscreen of course). Summer starts early here in Florida and we are loving it.
Here are the wonderful Mother's Day scrolls Kylie gave us.
I also included this piece of artwork attached to a 12x12 piece of cardstock. This is new in Kylie's artwork--dresses! This picture is of Tinkerbell and her fairy friends. I'm tickled how Kylie drew triangle dresses and matching shoes.
On the back, I attached this bit of schoolwork. These are five sentence strips Kylie made at school. So proud of the kiddo!
So that's it for another week!
