Project 365

A Picture a day for 365 days...a year's worth of fun!


Legos make matter how old...feel like a kid again!

Boys had their first basketball practice tonight...this is our off year so that means 2 different teams...Colin is on the Maroon Demons (9-10 yr) & Brendan is a Yellow Scorpion (11-12yr).

Tuesday~4/365 Both boys had ortho appointments after school...Colin Boy goes back in 6 months for another check...Brendan goes back in a month for start up...braces here we come!

Wednesday~5/365 AWE...Ryan & his Mini Me!

Thursday~6/365 Thursday was a rough of the things that happened on this particular of my students decided to use his scissors to cut a cord off of my listening station headphone jack...I was NOT happy!


With the boys being on 2 different basketball and baseball teams, I am unable to coach cheer this year...just not enough minutes in the day...but I am willing to help out when needed...Friday was Cheer Try-outs and I was one of the judges!

Saturday~8/365 Saturday night was date night for me and my hubby!! The boys went to grandma & grandpa's house for the night and we headed out to dinner, some shopping and a movie with a friend. Can't remember the last time we had date night!


Last semester I was in a Biggest Loser contest at school...for 18 or so weeks we weighed in each Monday with our final weigh in being the week we came back to school after our winter was calculated just like the the Biggest Loser on TV with the biggest percentage of body weight lost...AND...I won!! I lost 43 lbs (53 lbs over all) with a 19% body weight loss...AND I won $ after church today I did some shopping!

Monday~10/365 While the boys are at basketball practice I am in the weight room working out

Tuesday~11/365 After losing all my weight...I needed new bras...very badly! So that is what I bought on Sunday when I went shopping!

Wednesday~12/365 So busy at school with progress monitoring all my kids to make sure they are making the progress needed to stay on track...and bummer that I had no prep for 3 days last week since the art teacher was out sick with no sad!

Thursday~13/365 Thursday after school, in between running errands and basketball practice, we attended the 3rd/4th grade Reading Camp Out at school. It was so cute...they had the cafe set up like a camp site with lots of different stations geared around literacy...and s'mores too! Here is Colin listening to his teacher read stories by the campfire!

Friday~14/365 Friday was the official start of the 2011 Wildcat Football Season...they had a team lock-in at the school where the incoming seniors take over the while the team& coaches were playing, the boys and I headed to another coach's house to hang out and have dinner with his wife and kids. The boys played some table tennis after dinner!


The first basketball games of the season...Colin's game was at 9am and Brendan's at noon...both boys played awesome and both came away with wins...Way to go Mac Boys!

Congrats on the great weight loss! Oh, I remember the braces phase...if he wants some gum, Freedent doesn't stick as much.

Stephanie said...

I wish indoor gym photos turned out better. I would love to know how to get some clear shots. I think it's funny that your boys' season is just starting and my son's is ending.

Congrats on being the contest winner! You really won twice!

momma frans said...

Wow, congrats on your biggest loser reward! Great job!! My son was looking over my shoulder when was looking at your pictures and gave your husband 'props' for his Lego skills. I have many similar pictures jof my husband. :-)

I cracked up seeing both of your boys on the floor during their games. :) Must be all that football training- go after the ball with all your might and no matter what, don't drop the ball!

Congrats on winning The Biggest Loser contest. Awesome job!

Mimi said...

It looks like a great week. Congratulations on your weight loss.


The Bug said...

Congrats on your great win - one that was good for you & lucrative too!

I agree that it's funny that both boys were on the floor - that's how I played basketball, but for me it was more of a cowering maneuver than that I was trying to play :)

You look great in your date night picture!

LuAnn said...

Wow - congrates to you on the weight loss -how did you do it? I need something new.

Robin @ Be Still and Know said...

GREAT JOB on the weight loss!

Super fun to win all the cash!


I totally hate to shop for bra's but the first thing to go when you loose weight is the cup size isn't! I for one wold love to have that problem...

Carol said...

Hi Stacey,

I'm not sure where to start. Hmmm, how about congratulations and you look great! I am so proud of you.

I love how you are showing what's happening in your lives through pictures. I really should jump on this bandwagon, but it seems overwhelming for some reason. Maybe it's the poor quality of my photos, too.

It sounds like you are busy with keeping up with boys' basketball games. I have that same deal. Austin is playing on the high school freshmen team and the twins are playing Upward basketball. My hubs coaches their team.

It really was nice coming by and seeing what you've been up to.

Scissors are such innocent implements of mass destruction. I have a friend who has twins and their kindergarten teacher was telling her that the only area they were falling behind in was cutting with scissors...she told her that she was scared of giving them scissors even supervised was scary with twins...ha! Congrats on the weight loss, and what a great thing to have is money to spend on new stuff.

Catherine Anne said...

Yay for new bras! Looks like a great week.

rita said...

Congrats, you big loser ;)
That took some discipline!
Tell me how. I need ideas.

I'm so curious about the young Colts fan?

He & Me + 3 said...
