The Goalie Playing out!

This is a layout for my son's school/activities book.  I always keep these layouts to the basics, especially in my son's.  They are not my creative "show off books", LOL, its there personal achievement book, and lets face it,  boys are not about the bling!  These are photo's of my son playing defense, and as some of you know, he is a goalie, and has been since 1/2 way through his first season of tyke, he is now going into atom.  Every year he likes to play out for one or two games, its fun for him.

Grade 5 has come to an end!

These are pages I do for my children every year, they each have a book that is school in the front and activities in the back.  Each year I do a single basic layout with their grade, school photo and class photo.  The second layout is more of a pocket page as you can see above, where I tuck away their extra pictures, report cards, samples of their work, awards, anything I want to keep for them. (I wish someone had kept that stuff for me).  It works out really nicely and I have even started putting their extra Christmas portraits etc. in there so they are not stored in a box.  I started doing these pages right at pre-school and when you look back at the pages from then, they look like a pre-schooler did them.  I would not change them though because that is all I knew when I started and we all had to start somewhere.
