Week 28 {365} A Slice of Summer

This is my project 365 in a weekly version.

I have had many questions regarding what this is and I thought I would take a few minutes to clarify.

Last year I did the daily 365 and it proved to be one of the hardest challenges I've ever taken on. I love the outcome and will always treasure my book, but have decided to take it down a few notches.

I have no set rules. I find pics that represent the week and pick a theme and throw them together. I don't have to take pictures daily although I usually do. Unlike the daily Project 365, I can use as many or as few photos as I want. I've made it 28 weeks now and it is amazingly easier than last year. Some weeks I share my scrapbook page while others I only share my pics due to time restraints. I think the weekly project still represents our days well and will tell just as beautiful of a story when it is all said and done.

Project 365 can be started anytime. If you are interested in doing it but not sure how, Becky Higgins has both a paper book as well as an online version that you can plug in your text and photos (similar to shutterfly or snapfish).


Highlights This Week Include:
Eating Trout
Playing with Bendaroos
Catching Butterflies and Frogs
Playing with Nerf Guns
Enjoying Root Beer Floats
Building Forts
Running Outdoors
Eating Ice Cream
Making Memories at Adventureland
Finding Caterpillars
Listening to Thunderstorms
Picking Berries

We are now into the thick of summer. And although it has been smokin hot and the mosquitoes are more abundant than I ever remember... it is such a beautiful time of year and we are making some amazing memories. If ya didn't get a chance to read about our Adventureland experience you can find it here. It was definitely a day we won't readily forget.

What is your slice of summer lookin like this week?


  1. We as family also love going bowling together even in the winter times. Such great family time :)

  2. Ahhh, summertime! Looks like you are all enjoying it too!
    Have a wonderful week-end!

  3. Wow, you guys had a busy week. We didn't do much of anything! I'm losing my motivation to keep the kids busy and entertained every day. We need to go bowling soon.

  4. I always love the way you make your collage, girl! Those pictures are precious fun summer time memories. I think I'll try project 365 next year :D Btw, thanks for the links will go check them out now.

  5. I know myself well enough to know that I can't do a daily 365. I never thought to do a weekly one though. I like that idea.

    I make photo books for my kids and I try to group things, like pets or family, and then go by months and holidays. I will certainly try this. (sometime)

  6. I really like the idea of doing a weekly page. I will have to get organized and get on it as I have a ton of pictures of our family, but have scrapbooked very little even though I love to do it. Life just seems to get in the way. :-)

  7. I keep hearing about Project 365, but I have never looked into it...Great link by the way about the panning...I am interested in that... action shots always frustrate me....

  8. Gorgeous pictures (as always)!! I so miss running and your picture didn't help! LOL!!

    I've been wondering about the 365 project. It seems like a lot to undertake. Maybe one day...

  9. Awesome pictures!! Great job on your 365 project. Even weekly is a bit of work but I am sure it will pay off and you will be so glad you did it. I am inspired. Beautiful photos! Your family is just gorgeous!!
    Stopping by from the LBS Tea Party. I love your organizing tips by the way, I ALWAYS love those!

  10. I'm glad Pokey got her wish to go bowling and you finally had those root beer floats! Sorry we missed it. =)

  11. I tried to do the picture a day thing a while back and only made it about a week before I missed a day! I like the idea of doing a weekly recap. May have to give it a try soon!

  12. Love the pics as always! I really want to start long have you been doing it?

    We had a ridiculous camping experience this week. Although there were some great moments...camping is NOT my style! Thanks for always posting great hints and tips :o)

  13. What a great idea! I love it! Looks like a great week.

  14. I love all the pictures! Root beer floats...I cannot remember the last time I had one but I want one now!

  15. Looks like you are enjoying your summer! :D

    We had illness in our house plus dd's birthday this week. :D

  16. Sounds, and looks, like you had a great week! Lovely photos.... love the butterfly!

  17. I always look forward to your Project 365 posts. You always do a fabulous job with them and it's also nice to get a little peek into your family's week. Looks and sounds like a lot of fun was had by all! Can I be adopted into your family? lol
    Have a fabulous Sunday Lish. :)

    Kristi, Live and Love...Out Loud
