A Picture a day for 365 days...a year's worth of fun!
I hope you have as much fun seeing a peek into my week as I am posting about it!


My parents used to be snow 6 months in AZ and 6 months in MI...but last fall they became full time AZ residents. They had a cute little house not far from ours, but my dad decided that he needed a little bit bigger they bought another one this past month! They are a little nervous but VERY excited! It is in the same complex that they live in now so they are still nice and close...which I love...ya know to see them (and for babysitting!!)

This past week was the start of spring football for Ryan and his WCHS Wildcats!!! Over 100 kids came out which made all of the coaches very very excited!! But once again for all of the football wives...we have become football widows least for 2 weeks anyways!

Today we mailed in Colin's summer camp application! Since being diagnosed with Epilepsy he qualifies for Camp Candlelight, a summer camp specifically for kids with Epilepsy. He is so very excited!!

Dinner...$5 pizzas...'nuff said!


Thursday was CRAZY, cheer practice, bell/choir practice, baseball game, football practice, and then bell/choir concert! So after I got everyone where they needed to go, I was able to sit and enjoy Brendan at his concert...he is a bell ringer in the hand bell choir at school!! They all did a great job!


So excited to find this in my mailbox today!! It is a bday gift from Tarah at Eyeglasses & Endzones!! Not only is she a bloggy friend she is also Mimi's cousin and my IRL friend and makes fun camera straps! I love it...Thanks Tarah!!! (and it's already on my camera!)


Saturday my cheer squad competed in our district's cheer competition. There were 20 schools performing in over 60 performances! They have been working very hard all season for this day!It was a LLLLOOONNNGGG day...9am-2:30pm...but their hard work payed off! They took 2nd place in Performance Cheer and 3rd place in Pom! THEY DID FANTABULOUS!! My co-coach and I are so very proud of these girls!

This is what Sara says on her blog about Project 365...
"I am attempting to take one photograph each day of this next year. My hope is to be able to slow down and see the small things, become a better photographer and to be reminded of the many blessings God sends my way! "

Well said Sara...thanks for letting me tag along!
Join in with Sara...It's not to late to join the fun!

Lots of great photos from your week! (which was a busy one, from the looks of it)

Happy Mother's Day!

RaD said...

Wow! Your girls did great! You sounded so confident they could pull it off when you posted yesterday. Great job girls!

I'm so happy for your son going to the camp. Last summer my son spent a week at Diabetes camp. It was a great experience for him to be in a safe environment, with other kids who understand exactly what he goes through. It was a pretty interesting experience and I believe part of the coping process for him. He also was able to share Jesus with a lot of the campers who feel didn't know God and really struggle to accept themselves and feel life has been unfair to them. I pray your son has a wonderful time. God Bless

Way to go cheerleaders. Come teach my girl how to compete now.

Tori said...

Congrats to you and your squad!! Love the camera strap. Maybe you could get a Red Wings one too! Nothing better than summer camp, especially tailored to his medical needs. As a side note, you can totally tell you are a teacher by your handwriting on the envelope!!
Have a super week!!

Looks like a fun week!

We have a few bell ringers in our house, as well. I lead a handbell choir at our homeschool co op.

Thanks for sharing!

The Bug said...

We get Little Caesar's at least once a week - can't beat $5 dinner!

I tried to help with bell ringing at church, but I have no rhythm. I think they weren't sad when I stopped :)

Jen said...

Great football scene.
It's good that you are busy with cheer leading as well.
Exciting opportunity for Colin!

LuAnn said...

I can relate to the football - my son has started weight lifting before school and he has baseball going on too - NUTS !!!! Congrates to the girls too.

I am totally behind on my blogging...just seeing the news about Colin's epilepsy! Wow. I hope all is well and he enjoys that camp experience. He is such a sweet boy and I can't believe he is 9 already. It seems like yesterday that I had him in my class:) Miss you guys! And of course I will have to check out Ryans new blog! Too funny
