Productive avoidance . . . I have mastered the art of being completely off-task yet still feeling productive. I have not looked at any of my GoPro footage from our Florida trip. I opened the file folder on my computer and this image jumped right out at me. I sure do miss the ocean:).

Kathy - Love the underwater pic…I can see why it popped out at you on the screen.

Hi Melissa, thanks for stopping by (my other blog) to see my Birthday Traditions (www.oursimpleandmeaningfullife.blogspot.com)

I posted my Week in the Life process last year which I thought might help you but as you know everyone is different and Ali has lots of tips. My biggest advice is to have the camera with you, take heaps of photos even if they don’t end up getting used. Take photos of the cereal your kids eat, the school backpacks at the door, dropping them off to school, you eating lunch, the washing etc. I used a template for mine which is listed in the post here. Regards Kathy A, Brisbane




Saturday night was Homecoming at Walnut Hills.  Unfortunately, they passed a new rule that Freshmen are not allowed to attend- even with an upper class man.  Isaac is a sophomore, but his girlfriend is a 9th grader.  Elise already had her dress so they decided to have a night out anyway :).

Kathy - http://www.oursimpleandmeaningfullife.blogspot.com.au/2014/09/priceless-memories-traditions.html

Hi Melissa, beautiful photos…just looking at your B&W pics from your overnight stay. I love looking how the kids change so I’ve included my link above for my “birthday tradition” which I have 9 years running now. Thanks for the reply about the fonts for the “I love you book” and of course I will be doing WITL as this will be my 6th year now.

Beautiful photos of your son and his girlfriend…a very age appropriate dress and she looks beautiful. Regards Kathy A, Brisbane, Australia
