The page sharing continues today with pages from April and May of this year. Let’s jump in, shall we?
Number of photos taken in April: 646 (Note: high numbers can mean only one thing: ultimate frisbee tournaments.)
Number of photos used for these pages: 26
Do you use social media tags for documenting your year? I rely on the kindness of my daughter’s college friends to tag her on Facebook. That’s how I got the photo of her ultimate team to use on my page.
Again, SnapChat screen grabs give me content to include when my girlie is away at college.
All of Minnesota and the world was heartbroken at the passing of Prince. Of course, I had to include this in my album.
Yes. I managed to get MULTIPLE shots of my son that weren’t simply sports related. Victory truly is mine. Moving right along…
Number of photos taken in May: 1,305 (Note: high numbers can mean only one thing: day two of an ultimate frisbee tournament on the 1st, and a whole different tournament at the end of the month.)
Number of photos used for these pages: 27
A quick note about such a high number: I need to delete some photos from my library! When I rent big lenses to shoot ultimate tournaments, I forget to go back and delete all of the unusable shots. It’s on my list. No, really. It is.
One of my favorite photos of this year? The shot of Cole and one of his team co-captains from another ultimate tournament. In fact, this page is one of my favorites of the year. Just the variety and the color… just makes me happy.
More sports (including one of our team’s players who broke his arm) all able documented.
See for me, this is just the right amount of memory keeping. It’s doing what I want it to do, which is capturing a slice of life. Not the whole enchilada… just a sizable bite.
And that’s it. April and May saved in eight pages. I look at these pages and am grateful. No regrets because I know this is going to be a fabulous book when everything is ready to go.

Can I just say… I love this style! After watching all the videos in the class, some several times… I went back and started my 2010 year, which was my first year of trying a picture a day. I have all pages done up to September, and I should finish the rest by the week-end. Thank you for showing us this very “clean and simple” style!

Woo hoo! Sounds GREAT, Sindee! Be sure to share in the Facebook group!
You give me more hope for my thousands of pictures! Thanks for sharing your crisp style, Cathy. My family and friends love, just love, our scrapbooks whether old style #diecutsandstickers or this newer cleaner style #nocrap. I don’t limit myself to any one style and I love the freedom to just get my photos in books so others can enjoy and reminisce at any time. I can also relate to having an active son who won’t always pause for me to get “just one picture!” We get them when we can! Thanks again.

You had me at goat balls….
such a motivation to see how if we keep it simple, it is ENOUGH. Your everyday photos are a great inspiration to capture the mundane – real life.
