And, they liked the book! I think the part that was most amazing to them, was when I showed them the picture with me and Max, and they realized that I was the mommy in the book. "I have a mommy. But, you're my teacher!" said one little guy.
Another asked, "Who's that baby?"
And they enjoyed seeing the final product:
"He's sad." said one child. He does look a little sad here. That's kind of why I love this photo. I remember (somewhat) how Max could be when he was anxious as a young child (lots of loud crying and some hiding). And here, he's clearly not loving it, but he's keeping it together.
And as long as I'm connecting work and scrapbooking, I will share this layout about me at work. This time of year, I get to tell the stories of Purim and then Passover. I like passing these stories down, and watching the stories retold by the kids. I made this layout for one of my Write.Click.Scrapbook. posts about documenting your creative outlets.
