Project Life 2012 | Week 26

Week 26 and I’m still obsessed.

Project Life 2012 | Week 26

This week turned out simple and there are–gasp!–no inserts. Full disclosure: that’s only because I ran out of ink. I’ll be making a few 6×12 or 8.5×11 pages about the Maker Fair to stick in the middle of this spread. The photo count as it is? 32. Did I mention I love this project? I estimate that this year’s PL will hold at least 2,000 photos. Crazy awesome.

Oh, and the blurries are friends of ours sharing sonogram pictures. We went out to celebrate the healthy little bean. But they aren’t far enough along yet to be ready to share with the whole world.

Left side: tons of photos of people in front of computers. That’s reality, right there.

From left to right, up to down: Jake and the kids watching a tutorial from a Mini Maker on How to make a Backpack Buddy | Eliza teaching Jonas to draw and sibling hugging | Jake hanging out with Steven, the foreign exchange student that lived with Jake’s parents this year, at Steven’s going away party (he’s back in Taiwan and we all miss him already: he’s super awesome) | More photos from the going away party + journaling | Jake teaching Eliza how to program (more on that later) | Jake and Jonas snuggling

There’s a lot more Jake than usual in this week’s spreads and no photos of me. I love that: some weeks there aren’t any photos of Jake. I’m glad he got in here to make up for those other weeks. Another example of looking at the album as a whole vs. individual spreads to tell our story.

Right side: almost all Instagrams (I’m @Megan_NerdNest and Jake is @Jake_NerdNest).

From left to right, up to down: Daily life with Jonas | Description of Jonas’s and my daily routine right now | More daily Jonas | Eliza photos and descriptions | Going to see the movie Brave (we made the mistake of trying to take Jonas and ended up getting to see a half hour of the movie before we had to swap off watching him in the lobby. Woops.) | Secret sonogram photos with proud parents-to-be
