{9-15 June 2013 | week 24}

17 June 2013

It's week 24 and this week we have spring green and pink as our colours

What happened this week ?

The swimming lessons continue and we stopped at the lake at Songieu again to throw some stones. We painted our pottery lamps we made during the school trip to Chanaz. I took some portrait photos of the children and pets for an insert page (not shown). I especially love the photo that I took of the chives growing in our garden and this helped me choose the colour scheme for the week too. I am trying hard to use the camera off the {automatic shooting} setting, so was pleased with the result of my efforts.

Inspired by other blogs that I read we created our {summer bucket list} of all the things we'd like to do. I am going to display these ideas (there are 20 in total) on individual cards on a board and add a photo each time we complete an activity. Hopefully at the end of the summer we will have a visual memory of our summer wishes.

Again I modified some of the filler cards so they were closer to our chosen colour scheme.  Another reason for going with green and pink this week was because it finally felt like Spring, which is ironic as it's Summer next week ! I used papier calque for the Mother Teresa quote and last week's photo of the Church at Vieu can be seen this week also.

I started using the {Collect} photo app to record a photo each day and used the one of Tuesday to print out a journal card concerning Noah.
