Project Life Week 4

Project Life Week 4, Page 1
There were a lot of words to describe this past week. My journal cards were filled with tiny type.

The top row has a date card along a picture of Kylie playing her new sneak-up game at the park. The second row has Kylie showing off her flexible gymnastics moves, a picture and some journaling about her red envelope to celebrate the Chinese New Year, some journaling about Karen's travels this past week, and finally some journaling about the sneak-up game. The bottom row has a picture I snapped of Kylie playing with her wind-up toys (had to get on my belly to get that shot) and another picture from the day at the park.

The second page has more park pictures on the top row. The second row has some pictures and journaling about my running and Karen's running. The second picture shows a scrape Kylie got on her temple. She ran into a tree at school trying to tag a boy before he reached base. There was a funny story associated with this accident that I wrote on a pull-out card and tucked in between the pictures. Because of the way the small card page protectors load, you can see the "pull me" brown tab just on page 1. Still, I'm glad I captured the story and like the "tuck it in" cards. There was so much text on this page 2 so I tried to off-set it with a bold block. I put the 37 to document how much Kylie weighs. The last picture on the 2nd row shows Kylie attending a movie night at her school.

The bottom row has a picture of Kylie displaying a mug with her handprint on it that she brought home from school and some pictures and journaling about the dragon masks Kylie and I colored and played with at home.

Project Life Week 4 Inserts
Each week, I pick 2-4 pieces of Kylie's artwork to keep with the Project Life pages. I put the artwork in either an 8.5 x 11 sheet protector and/or I usually mount some artwork onto a 12x12 piece of white cardstock. I have a rubber stamp for the journal lines and I make a point to write a few lines. The white 12x12 pages separate my project life week pages quite well. The page on the left has the red envelope I gave to Kylie on the front of the insert. On the back of the insert is this picture she colored of a dragon, adding fire and a tower to the page. The page on the right is a beautiful and colorful fish she made in aftercare.

Project Life Week 4, insert back
Kylie brought home new school work in this week's folder. In her class, she has a lesson were she matches a word with a picture and then writes the word on a slip of paper. These were just some of the many slips of paper she brought home. My darling one can't wait until she gets a journal like the ones the kindergarden students use for this type of work. I also included a very cheerful flower she colored for this week's work around the letter F.

And that's it for another week of Project Life!
