Project 365

Project 365 button  designed by

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!


Sunday I took my niece out for some birthday shopping. We stopped for lunch at Johnny Rockets where they have these fun straw dispensers!


Every Monday our school has early dismissal which means the students are dismissed an hour earlier than every other day. But that also means a 2 hr professional development for teachers...EVERY Monday. This past Monday they had some prizes and I won! Yay for me! $5 gift card to Subway!


While at a stoplight on my way home from school I was able to capture a jet landing. We have an air force base not far from our house so we see lots of jets flying. Love the mountain in the background.

Wednesday Colin and I went up to the freshman game for a half. Ryan always stays to watch after practice so we came up to surprise him, cuz ya'know, we don't have enough football in our week! Oh and the frosh WCHS Wildcats won BTW!


Thursday I got a call from Brendan's teacher asking if I would like a skit performed for my class. I said...SURE! Brendan's group made up a skit to America the Beautiful. The 2 boys acted out as the 3 girls sang the was really very good! I love teaching where the boys attend.


Friday I quartered 20 oranges for Saturday's Cobras football...I was one of the snack moms! And if you notice 1 baggie with no orange but instead a granola bar...that is because Brendan refuses to eat fresh fruit, so that is his half time snack.

YES that is 4:53 in the morning and NO it was not by choice. Boys had a game at 8am which means we need to be to the field by 6:30am and since the field was a 45 min drive away we left the house at 5:35am. I was up first and woke the boys about 5:05am so they could get dressed, eat and brush some teeth.

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!

no thanks for those early mornings. LOL I am too lazy.
Love the straw picture and hooray for winning a gift card. Those come in handy.
How fun to be able to watch the skit. Cute. I'm glad i got an in at my kids school too :) That is why I do yearbook pics:)
Miss you too.
Look at all those oranges. Wowzers.

Leslie said...

Wow! What a week! You are busy, but it looks fun! Boys are great! They, usually , just go with the flow. I love your "normal" life :)

The Bug said...

Oh getting up that early on a Saturday is just criminal! I guess you'll tell us tomorrow how the game went?

Foursons said...

Wow, so the kids get out early every Monday all year? Do you have to go to inservice every Monday or do you get some of the time to get caught up on stuff?

My boys won't eat fruit either. They won't eat granola bars either for that matter. I'd be packing something equally as healthy like chips or something.

That is a crazy early hour and I'm not sure what I would do with myself. I would be totally tempted to rebel!

I like working where my kids go to school too!

I like the picture you took of the straws, I never would have thought of that!

Jenilee said...

love subway! :) and 4:53! ah!

The Not So Perfect Housewife said...

Love that shot of the jet! VERY cool!!

Stacy said...

I have never heard of a school getting out early every Monday. I bet that skit was funny:)

That is WAY to early to be getting up!

You're a teacher! I learned something about you. We ate at Johnny Rockets at Myrtle beach. Paid $6 for a hot dog.

skoots1mom said...

u r always soooo creative...great pics!

H-Mama said...

We love us some Subway, too. Yay for giftcards!

What a treat to be so near your kids that you wouldn't miss that creative skit. Sounded like fun!

Getting up at that hour {on purpose} on a Saturday should be illegal. The things we do as moms. ;)

we have a cheapie straw dispenser like that here at home, with pink, purple, and green straws in it. Molly loves it.
boo to early mornings, but yaay to older kids performing for the little ones. Some of the upper classes do that for us, too, and the high school has a class that brings some of their kids over to read and a story and do a lesson with it to our classes. Watching these big football playing boys reading to my first graders is always a treat!
oh..and what's up with a 2 hour inservice EVERY WEEK? how many inservice hours do y'al have to have? do you not take any in the summer? I say boo to that, too!

Alicia said...

Oh my gosh, that is crazy getting up that early!! But, you are a totally dedicated mommy!! I'm not surprised!

Robin @ Be Still and Know said...

Now the the DD is in high school my morning start early. not at 4:53 but I am up and out of bed each morning by 6:00, it was a huge adjustment for a few weeks but I think we are adjusting!

Have a great week this week!


Stephanie said...

6:30??????????????? Wow!!!!!! You're as bad as us with baseball :)

Bridget said...

I'm not a morning person, but love the football pics. Congratulations on winning the the Subway gift card, too!

Tori said...

That straw pic is very fun and retro!
I am amazed that you have prof. development every Monday. And hooray for a Subway prize.
All I have to say about your clock picture is, No thank you! YUCK!!!
Have a super week!
