Project 365

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!

Family Fun Day...Colin and I spent the morning playing Mancala...he is WAY better at this game than me! After we headed to the grocery story where we shared a Strawberry Frap from Starbucks and then later this day Brendan and I headed out for a Mother/Son date.

We had no school today for fall break...YAY! Girls day out with my mom, sister and friend Crystal. We started out at the outlet mall, then for lunch and finally ended the day with pedis and ice cream! I let the tech do whatever she wanted for my design and this is what I walked out with!

Tuesday after school I headed to the store for apples and pumpkins for the Kindergarten Family Fall Fun Night on Wednesday.

Kindergarten Family Fall Fun Night.
We had lots of fun learning stations set up focusing on math, science & literacy. We had a great turn out with lots of fun!

This was a very bad horrible no good day for me
no picture
is it may yet?!

I had been debating all week whether or not to go to Ryan's football game Friday night, which was over 2 hrs away. Well after my very bad horrible no good day on Thursday I decided that I was gonna take a hooky day on Friday and go to the game. And I am glad I did...Ryan's team played the best they have played all season and beat the Bulldogs 42-6! It was awesome!


Saturday night was our Pop Warner Association's Cheer Jamboree and Award Ceremony. The first part of the night was dedicated to Cheer. All of the squads danced & preformed. The 2nd part of the night was an awards ceremony for academic performance. Based on grades from last year, if players or cheerleaders had at least a 92% or higher GPA they received an Academic Medal. Here is Brendan and teammate Henry, 2 Cobras who were honored for their academic excellence. Great Job boys! (Colin would have been honored too, but he was not old enough!)

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!

Congrats to Brendan! That is an awesome accomplishment.

Sorry to hear Thursday was such a bad day. :(

Yay for Friday though! Is your husband's team going to end up in the playoffs?

My boys love Mancala. Those little rocks are fun.

Robyn said...

Great pictures, sorry for the bad day, glad you recovered though.

LOVE those toes! Pretty amazing pictures on such small canvases.

Sorry you had a bad day, but I guess since it made you give yourself permission to go to the game, then it had an ok outcome :)

I LOVE your pedi! What a very fun design!!
Fall family nights are always a good time. Especially when you have fun teachers like you planning them.
So sorry about your day. You leave the bad ones for Alexander and you keep to good ones! :)
Glad you took a day for yourself and enjoyed it!!
Have a super week!!

I still have never had a pedi :( I love your cute Halloween piggies, what a fun pedi! I guess now that the weather starts to get colder here, I neglect my feet for the season, ha! How sad!

Bummer you had a bad day...but so GLAD you made up for it! What an awesome win!

Hope you have a great week ahead! We just finished our fall break! :)

I lover that pedi!! So cute!! Glad things got better after your terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day! (We used to love that book BTW!)

Amy said...

Took awhile for me to get around this week. I love those toes!!! I wish I had the nerve to get a pedi...I HATE feet and people touching my feet...I know, I know.

Love those smart football players...and good for you a hooky day for a good cause, even if it was to shake off a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

Jen said...

I know eveyone loves your toes! Awesome!

rita said...

You are the winner of my giveaway!
Please e-mail me your address.

We love Mancala too, until one of the players masters the strategy and there's no beating him/het!

Love those Halloweeny toes ;)

When I visited Elijah's class for grandparent's day, I was very impressed and want to use some of the techniques in my beginning Spanish class. I tell them they are kindergartners in the language. It's true.

Have a great rest of the week.

I absolutely love your pedi!

Stacy said...

Hi Stacey,
Just stopped over from Mimi's a football mom right along with you. Two of our boys play Pop-Warner football. One at the 90 division and one at the 120's. Your Children are just precious!

And love those toes....I don't know if I could give the pedi tech carte blanche. Way to go.

Have a wonderful weekend.

God Bless,
