The Magical, Wonderful, Totally Exhausting 'Class Book'

The Magical, Wonderful, Totally Exhausting 'Class Book'

I love photography and have a gorgeous camera.  One year, when my oldest son was finishing 1st grade, I think, I made a photo book as an "end of the year gift" for his teacher.  It came out great.  Everyone loved it...parents ended-up ordering soft-cover copies for themselves, as a way to remember their child's school year, through pictures of field trips, classroom events and student portraits.  So, guess what?  I put one together the next year...for both boys' classes, since my little guy had also entered the elementary school by then.  Next year...again...and, now, it's sort of expected.

It's a lot of $%&%...
