Year End Pictures and Interviews

I'm going to spare you the tired and grumpy 7 Quick Takes I could be writing right now, and instead share with you one of the things I've been working on this week.  I love picking out the pictures and putting these together with the kids (Emma designed her own picture this year).  I also put together lists of accomplishments for Emma and Gregory - books read, curricula used, field trips, that sort of thing - and it is so rewarding for the kids and for me.  As my daughter said, "Mom, you're making me feel like I've actually done something!"  To which I responded, "Me too!"

I am so thankful to Sarah at Amongst Lovely Things for coming up with this and for sharing it with everyone!

I also had my older two fill out Sarah's All About Books journalling prompt, but I still need to gather samples of work and art and make some photo pages.  Yes, it is definitely some work to do, but I think it is so worthwhile.  It is good for all of us to be able to see what we've done together and to have the opportunity to reflect on the year rather than hurtling into summer and the next school year. 


  1. Love these! What program did you use to create the photo/text look?

    1. - I just use the free version.

  2. I love this idea! I'm going to steal it this year! :)
