Project Life Week 17: Hello There School Vacation Week

projectlifelogo1

The challenge of documenting this week was because it included school vacation week (April 20 – 26)and we were out doing more things than normal. So I added an insert. Something I don’t want to do too often for it will make the album thicker than it should be. Some people split a year of Project Life between 2 albums. I don’t want to do that, so I will have to plan more when working on future weeks and keep it to a minimum.

week17a

We did some crafts and Nicholas worked on his comics. Apollo worked on his ATCs for swap and I worked on a few craft projects in my craft room. It was just great to have a break from school drop off/pick up and the whole routine and just relax with the boys. 

week17b

We spent a lot of time outdoors since the weather was actually warming up nicely. The construction of the boy’s clubhouse (now called Fernandes Studio) is coming along nicely so we spent time on their deck, talking and planning. At the beginning of the week, Leao’s Passat finally said goodbye so Leao being the amazing researcher and negotiator found what he liked and within days had a brand new Jeep.  He hung on to his car as long as he could but the commute is long and safety is a priority.  So it happened at a great time in terms of the kids were out for vacation week so we could drive and drop him to pick up his new Jeep.  I took a picture of Apollo saying his goodbyes to the Passat at the dealership.

We also went to the Zoo. Which for me is a mixed feeling experience because of the treatment of captive animals. But Apollo enjoyed seeing the animals.  I also took a picture of Apollo who loves to be around Leao when he is working in his office. So while Leao was on a conference call, Apollo camped out on our weight bench with his iPad. It was so cute I had to take a picture.

week17d

Above is the other side of the insert. Of course a trip to the bookstore was a must while the boys were on vacation. I scored three great books at the used bookstore. Two which I had on my TBR so that made me so happy. We spent time with Vovo and Papa and Apollo joined us to play this great dice game (Greed). The picture above he is celebrating with them, his win. He rolled 5 fives in one roll!  He was so happy. We also took them to Rainforest Cafe for dinner one night since they reminded me that the last time we went was in San Antonio!! Kids know just how to stick it to you when they want to.

week17e

I rarely use this page protector with four 6×6 pockets but I wanted to shake it up a bit. The top right photo above is so darn cute that I had to include them. It’s Apollo jumping around when we were at the Zoo. Doesn’t it look like he is dancing? In case you can’t see it, I included an enlarged copy below.
week17fI am slowly getting back to my craft table to work on my Project Life catch up. I will be back next week with Week 18. Happy crafting my friends.

  1. Wow. Can I work on PL too?!

    • Yes we have to get our schedules back on again. I need to kick it into high gear. I would like to catch up by the end of November. Then because December is crazy, just plan on falling behind for the month and wrapping up December in January at Snowflake? How’s that sound to you?

  2. Your pictures and story behind them make me smile

    • Thanks Maria. You know I feel the same way and I think that is what keeps me wanting to push through and catch up on the weeks that have passed.
