Project Life - Week 21

Welcome to Project Life 2015! If you are new to my blog, welcome! I hope you will stay a while. I'm Jessica, wife to Juan, mommy to 3 year old Maddie. I am also an electrical engineer by day and I am participating in Project Life, a different way to record our lives by taking one photo a day. This was inspired by the fabulous Becky Higgins.

I am using a digital kit on Shutterfly. This digital version is SUPER easy to use! See my completed pages for 2012 using the Shutterfly - Project Life Turquoise Edition HERE and my 2013 album using the Shutterfly - Project Life Childhood - Mayfield Edition HERE I will hopefully be posting my 2014 pages soon.

And finally, my POTW (pictures of the week) - 

Saturday - We headed out to Six Flags over Texas this morning. Maddie had so much fun last year that we decided to get season passes for this year. It was a cloudy, rainy day; but we still had fun. We only stayed for a couple of hours, but Maddie rode plenty of rides and had her face painted. She loved the Tazmanian Devil Tornado swings and the Tea Cups. It was the first time she's rode the Tea Cups and she wanted to ride them again and again. How she can spin that much without getting sick, I will never know.

Monday - I had the day off work for Memorial Day, but Vanessa had to work so Mom and I took all three kiddos to the Dallas Zoo. They are having a special "Giants of the Jurassic" exhibit with life sized mechanical dinosaurs. We didn't make it to the dinosaur exhibit though. We started in the "Giants of Savanna" and at the zebra/giraffe/antelope/deer area. The kids were standing on a bench watching the animals. It was wet from all the rain and Jakob turned to jump down from the bench and slipped, breaking his arm. We ended up at the Methodist Dallas ER. Nana stayed with Jakob for the XRays and I took the girls home with me. Poor little guy! We were not even at the zoo for 30 minutes. They had a photographer there and I was disappointed that we didn't get to see the photos taken of us. The zoo was amazing and later sent us copies in the mail of the pictures. They also gave Jakob an entire set of dinosaur cards.

Tuesday - Juan and I went to Al Biernet's for lunch - delicious! It's been a long time since we have been there and we treater ourselves. I LOVE their corn chowder, YUMMY.

Wednesday - Today was Maddie's last day of school at Ascension. The first photo is Maddie with Mrs. Miriam her 3's class teacher on Mondays and Wednesdays. She is standing with her little class: Stiles, Matthew, Mrs. Miriam, Maddie, and Sloan. They also had an assistant, Mrs. Chantal. On Tuesdays and Thursdays Maddie was in Mrs. Jackie and Mrs. Lisa's 2's class. Her class included: Matthew, SLoan, Mariah, Grace, Conner, Evelyn, Clara, Palmer, Campbell, and Maddie (four boys and the rest girls)! The last photo is with Maddie and her best friend Sloan. She talks about Sloan all the time and tells us Sloan is her best friend. I believe Maddie has a love/hate relationship with Matthew. She always talks about how he cries, but then she is sad when he is not at school.

Thanks for visiting!
