Another month has come and gone and today I’m sharing said month in my simple Scrapbook Your Year format. The more I do this approach, the more I feel like this is exactly the type of album I want to be making to summarize a year in the life of this family. But enough of my marketing ploy! Let’s dive in.
Number of Photos Taken in September: 185. It was a pretty light month for photos. This usually happens when my girl heads back to college and my boy heads back to high school and my old man heads back to his teacher job. I mean, I can only take so many photos of my lunch, people. You feel me?
Number Used: 26
I love when all four of us are represented on the first page of the month. It’s actually what I strive to do, though I don’t always achieve that goal. My favorite shot on the page is Dan in mid air, taken while jump roping at school, right before the students got on the bus for the day. Not sure who took it, but I’m grateful they sent it to Dan, who in turn, gave it to me. Not this his new job is all about jumping and being happy, but it’s definitely about jumping.
The next page features a pic of both Dan and Cole in the 6th grade. This is something he likes to do. He brings in photos of all of us in the particular grade he is teaching. Love that little tradition. Another thing I’m grateful for? Cole let me recreate his first day of Preschool for his first day of 12th grade. Even though he doesn’t take the bus, he got out there like a trooper and stood on the very same corner from all those years ago. Sigh.
Another tradition I love is that Dan and Cole have been playing indoor sports since he was old enough to kick or throw a ball. We have this little basketball hoop, and Dan and Cole will play epic games in our entryway. I’m so grateful that Cole has a dad who likes to play. So very grateful for that.
And the final page wraps the month. We got to see our girl play in her first ultimate tournament of the season in her final year of collegiate sports. The black and white photo is with the woman who was my children’s Kindergarten teacher, Miss K. We had gathered to say goodbye to the son of a dear friend. The Montessori community is a close knit one, and we saw many friends and families from over the years.
And that is the snapshot of September. Always grateful for another month in the life.
