Organize your Stuff: Week 6 (round 4): Photos part 2

It has taken a while…and a completely new photo printer at Costco after several failed fix attempts, but the photos are here!... and therefore a layout!
This is Oldest Child’s wrestling season. This layout was selected from about 150 photos taken. Do you have the same problem that we do trying to capture our children’s sports in photos? For Football season OCD Me probably took a minimum of 200 digital pictures a game over eight games (that is 1600+ pictures). Then, it is left to the POW and Creative Me to figure out what pictures to use… and when the Inner Hoarder is involved, the choices are even harder to make and cull down to The One (or ones) for a layout.

As for new photos, here is a picture of our Mother’s Day camping in the rain. The POW was boycotting the holiday as the Reserves will shift everyone’s drill for Super Bowl Sunday, but not Mother’s Day. We are pretty sure that Somebody up the food chain must have Mommy issues. So, my tribe went camping, Awesome Auntie and hers went to the zoo (and stayed dry), and a fun time was had by all!

Also, here is the Illusive Middle Child as center of the universe…if only for a moment at his First Communion. Talk about hundreds of photos from which to pick! We have at least four camera’s worth of pictures to sift through to find The Ones. Well, tomorrow we will talk ideas, and have a card or two!

I am, at last, coming to the end of sports photos...at least the taking of them! Last year during DS's final year of rugby, DH must have taken a million pictures. No, really...I think you could make one of those flip books and see the entire season, every minute of every game!! So I completely understand your issues! I am right now finishing DD's football album and am having a terrible time culling the photos...our team won the state championship so there are LOTS of memories to be saved!!

Ah, here you are, been wondering about you :) I always have a hard time choosing photos, and usually take too many as well. Looks like camping was fun, even if it was wet!

I think that is the problem with digital, we take too many photo's.
With film we had to wait for the perfect photo (and usually missed it, lol) that we didn't take as many.
But love my digital, so much better quality in the photos.
