I’ve now completed eight weeks of Project Life, and I’m still convinced it’s the best method of memory-keeping! However, seeing as I’m currently wrapping up some other scrapbooks and albums that I’ve been working on, I’m thinking about posting about them too. Would that be of interest to you? I thought it would help to give you an overall idea of how I’ve been approaching memory-keeping, seeing as Project Life might not be everybody’s cup of tea (though it definitely is mine!).
I’ve decided to make these Project Life posts slightly shorter, so that they don’t chew up too much of your time to read! This of course means less photos. However, if you click on the images below, you’ll be able to see a much larger version of it, which means more detail.
Anyway, the above shot is the left hand page of Week 17. I love all the everyday family life photos here: Rick and Angus playing tip in the family room, the boy enjoying their bath time, Rick bustling about in the kitchen, and the delicious chicken stir fry that Rick whips up almost every week.
The Wednesday of Week 17 was Anzac Day, the day on which one of our parishioners lost his battle to cancer. After visiting him in hospital that day, we drove on to Little Manly Cove, where we had lunch and the boys got to run on the sand for a bit. This photo was taken at the Cove, and I added a paragraph of text to commemorate the date and occasion (some of this is blurred for confidentiality). Even looking at it now makes me tear up.
This photo of Pete in the car was taken as we were leaving the Cove to go home. He’d climbed into Rick’s seat and was pretending to steer the wheel. Rick, of course, could not resist taking a photo of his son ‘driving through the bush’ – or so it seems.
The entire right hand page is filled with photos from our day off that week: we’d driven to Church Point in the morning, then the lookout at West Head, and then we’d visited Dee Why beach in the early evening (you might recognise some of the photos from this post). I took a lot of photos that day, and it was rather hard selecting the ones I like the most. Editing is definitely an acquired skill.
I love taking photos of Rick and the boys down at the beach, and this one is one of my all-time favourites. It really captures the stage of life we’re at: Jamie in Rick’s arms, Pete holding onto Rick’s hand and Angus bustling around them (and of course yours truly lagging behind taking photos).
Honestly, every time I flip through our growing Project Life family album, my heart jumps for joy a bit. This is going to be such a treasure for our family.

p.s. I’m finally putting together another room tour – the boys’ room!
