90 days of Summer
Remember the 90days of Summer last year?? click here if you didn't see it
No one asked if I was going to do it again until today.
Here's what I told her....
last year my kids were bored by noon the first day out of school, so I decided to do something...anything...I counted how many days till we went back to school :) it happened to be 90 , so I started an album on fb called the 90 days of summer with no clear motive or direction, one simple rule - take one picture a day of something we did /or saw. we did a few new/different things but mostly I just decided to take a picture of everyday life around here. The response was crazy - ppl were hooked, commenting like crazy, asking if I got off a day....it was a lot of fun though. The things I found picture worthy- recipes, local hang outs we checked out, church stuff, extended family stuff, trips, camps. Funny I took so many pictures (then I had a itty bitty point and shoot camera) it was hard to pick only one picture some days. I added a little wording to explain the picture - basic journalism. It took little time really and was very worth it. I like simple - I have three bored kids that need entertaining.
I believe as long as you do something to record memories you are doing good. I am not a perfectionist so that helps. You could do weekend week-in-review so you do it once a week if you work. Or just take advantage of those together times.
We'll when I checked the calendar this year we only had 76 days and well it seemed not only short but an unexciting number.
