our summer 2015 pocket scrapbook (part 1)

I set out to document our summer break as I've done in the past. (See 2014's book here and the little I shared of 2013's here). I organized my 2015 book like this. Though I shared my layouts week by week, I thought it would be nice to have my layouts in one (well, two) posts for easy viewing and a short recap for those of you who weren't able to follow along. :)

Every week my girls went to the library to get their weekly prize for reading throughout the week and to watch the library's summer reading program. My mom also took them to her house every week for embroidering, crocheting, Spanish lessons, cooking classes, and dinner once a week.

Week #1's highlights include watching movies (Tangled!), playing board games, starting the summer reading program at the library, playing with magnet dolls, and getting drive-thru ice cream. See week #1 in more detail here

(A list of supplies and embellishments can be found at the end of each week's original post. :)

Week #2's highlights include watching Home, starting paper bag albums for my girls' memory keeping, drive-thru strawberry lemonades (gotta love drive-thru with little ones!), and a dad/daughters date night. See week #2 in more detail here.

Just kidding- I'm grieving a little less this week. ;)
