This month I have been thinking a lot about our daily life and how it is, or isn't, represented in our scrapbooks. I realized that when I had just one child and a much quieter life (retrospectively deemed, of course), much of our life was captured on our pages. But now that I have three and our daily routine includes lots of on the go things, I'm not sure that my pages represent our busy selves anymore.
For instance, my girls both do dance and gymnastics. Between the two girls and the two activities, we spend countless hours in the car. It is really just in between time, right? Until you start adding it up and then it becomes its own activity. Until now, I have totally failed to document the hours and laughs that we have spent and had in the car.
To right this "wrong," I took a pic of the girls in the back seat coming home from dance pictures (hence the makeup). I actually did a video and a screenshot--much safer while driving. And has the added benefit of a very funny video! (Four minutes and 21 seconds of them singing some homemade song at the top of their lungs. Awesome!)
I love moments of reckoning and reset. It allows me an opportunity to change and adapt. So this month I am trying to capture photos of those things that I/we do all the time. So often, in fact, that I sometimes forget to include them in my pages. Hopefully this month I can create a selection of "boring" pages.
How about you? Any thoughts on getting those mundane details?
