Bringing school into the home has been a mountain to climb. Payton asked me to help her with multiplication the other day, and to make this short, I’m not the best teacher. It’s been a fun and frustrating ride for me and my children, that’s why I find scrapbooking and journaling these Covid memories very important, so that I can share these experiences in a way that me and my children can connect with them in the future.
A Million Memories…
With a million photos to use and not much space, I decided to use the Mini photo set to help make room for some of my favorite memories like at home school and helping my daughter with multiplication (we can debate how helpful I actually was later). Using the 2×2 photos, I was able to design my layout with 15 photos!
One of the most important parts of this experience and layout for me was the journaling. Scrapbooking for me is a way to make sure my children and anyone after them can look at the photos of their childhood as well as read the memories. I’m a bit conscious when it comes to journaling though, so I always do a practice run on a separate piece of paper before writing it out officially. It’s a bit tedious, but for me it’s the difference between having to start over and…well…not having to.
