I don't go to classes anymore or teach at that school anymore but I still love crafting up all of our memories to keep our albums up to date. I have seven 12x12 albums.
It is lovely on a rainy cold day to look back on all our summer memories and add little journal tags to remind ourselves where we were, what we were doing and in a very British way; what the weather was like.
The girls have really good memories of places they have been and it always surprises me when they can recall things from such a young age or from so long ago but the photos really help them.
They can say "Do you remember when we went to (Place) and I wore my green jumper!?" or "I saw one of those at that national trust with a weather vane on the roof" or other such tiny details that I have even missed myself.
But most of all, I love their faces, feelings and emotions in the pictures. Every one tells me a story as if I wasn't even there.
