At least the bad weather over the weekend enabled us to finally decorate and get started on the kids scrapbooks. kalem and Talia cut lots of little pictures out of old comics and glued them on to a plain scrapbook, then we added a photo and I covered them in the clear plastic covering (the type you use for school books). This kept them busy for ages and they were both really excited about the finished item.
We kept a scrapbook for Kalem the year before we left England so that he would have something to remember his time there. It was simple and childlike filled with movie tickets, a map to Lego World (somewhere he will never forget), photo's of his little buddies, a underground timetable for the tube in London and lot's of other bits and bobs.......hopefully he will always treasure this
I love the idea that one day the kids great grandchildren may read these books and marvel at how the world was in 2008..............X
