Here´s what we´ve been up to, as for Creative Every Day challenge 2013 by Leah Piken Kolidas, I´m taking at least a picture a day for the whole year. This is my fourth time around with the Pic-a-day project and at the end of each month I make a mosaic of the month´s pictures and also summarize it in numbers for the My month in numbers feature by Julie Kirk. Here are some inspirational instructions on how to go about it.
I´ve taken 239 of the possible 244 pictures for 2013 so far, here are the 31 that I chose for August from the 194 I will be keeping: CLICK ON ANY PICTURE TO MAKE IT BIGGER
a) How many visitors did you have? From 1 to 5 "extras" every day this month. David is a German student who stayed with us for two months. His friends Marius and Lukas stayed at home a lot (although they were officially at other homes)

b) The earliest we got up was at 4am to take the kids to the airport on August 1st as they were going to El Calafate to se the glaciers.
FOUR types of candy from the same brand: honey, mint, toffee and fruit.
TWELVE months it took to pay for our eldest son End of School trip. August was the last one!
The German kids took THREE trips: El Calafate, Iguazú and Puerto Madryn.
Finished TWO books. Yay! I´m reading real books again! ;)
I got THREE flower bouquets from my boys.
ONE cool ring for Tati.
As you can see in the mosaic we went out A LOT and we had the kids home MANY times, playing in the garden, watching telly, simply hanging out. :D
Have you ever been an exchange student? Have you ever hosted one?
For me it was a nerve wrecking experience on the first week. Yes, the week I wanted EVERYTHING to be perfect. Then I learnt to multiply meals at a moment´s notice, to accept that boys could use pink sheets and that sometimes plan didn´t work out and it was ok. ;)
