Family Yearbook Challenge 2009 - Week 20

If you're new to the Family Yearbook Challenge click HERE & then HERE

Don't forget to leave a comment and check in...I'm keeping track of all the comments posted in the Family YB Challenge for a big giveaway at the end of the year....so go back and check in each of the FYBC posts if you haven't done so.

Homework June 29-July 5:

1. How do you celebrate the 4th of July? Describe your family's annual traditions and celebrations. Do spend it with your friends, family, neighbors? Tell about the activities. Do you watch fireworks? Where?

2. Ask your children and/or family members about Freedom - Interview people in your family and ask them what freedom means to them. Ask them to tell you about a 4th of July from the past and their favorite memories and traditions.

Now COPY and paste any photos that you have that go with these events and questions into a new folder titled June. If you'd like to rename the photos you can with july 1, july 2, july 3 and so on and so on. If you have any memorabilia that is NOT digital, scan and save as a jpg. minimum 300 dpi to your May folder, named and labeled. If you have a "story" you can hand write it or "type" it into a document and save in the same folder.

That's such a cute quote!

I am not American so 4th of July is something I have heard a lot about but understand it is so full of meaning that I can't really grasp. I like to read American novelists and playwrites and learn a little more about it.

I'm recommending your site to my daughter who is very digilent at telling the story of her family by using photo scrapbooking. Your Family Traditions...Share Your Stories button is going on my blog, even as I speak!

The 4th of July is usually celebrated with family! That's our tradition! I've been out of town for a couple of weeks, so I have a few weeks worth of homework to catch up on. But, I will get it done soon! :)

I'm in love with the louis vuitton designed Speedy bags. I'll have to make a note to check Louis vuitton bags out the next time I'm near a louis vuitton handbags shop. I like that the zip goes all the way down on the sides. I used to hate digging around for my phone or keys in my old lv .
