Project 365

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

Sunday ~ 227/365
Sunday August 14, 2011
Sunday afternoon the boys and I headed to the mall where the Lego Store was holding a 2 day build-a-thon. It was pretty cool...they got to go into a special roped off area and build whatever they wanted. We were there about an hour. Colin built the word Lego and Brendan built a robot.

After they were done building their creations went on display and they each received a Lego master builder certificate. It made for a fun, relaxing & cool day that was cheap!

OK...I must admit that I actually took these pictures on Sunday evening but I realized that I had no pics for Monday so I am using them today instead...
I had the pleasure of meeting the newest WCHS Wildcat fan...Charley Claire! Isn't she the cutest! I brought her and her fam some yummy dinner on Sunday night and was able to snuggle with her for a few minutes before it was time for her to eat! Above is Big Brother Owen loving on her...doesn't he look so proud?!

While looking through my pictures, I realize that is it truly football season since most of them are dealing with football!! Here is Colin during practice as center; this is his back-up position this year. They boys are doing great and having lots of fun!

Saturday I pulled out our Dora dollhouse when we had friends visit and I found Brendan playing with it before school this morning! He had brought out all of his action figures...he has such a great imagination!

Thursday August 18, 2011
Thursday night the boys had a scrimmage in Scottsdale (which is not close!) and sadly I was not able to go...I had Curriculum Night at I was sending them with another player and his dad. I did receive text updates through out the night and learned that they did great and dominated the field.

Friday August 19, 2011

Friday night was our annual Jog-A-Thon and official weigh in certification. The boys all received team shirts to wear so they matched and jogged/ran/walked for nearly an hour and then after we all caravaned to the football office for weigh in. Pop Warner is a weight-based/age-based league...this weigh in is their official weight and then before each game they weigh in as well...they can't weigh more than a certain amount or they can't play. All of the CATS made their it's official...our season starts this Saturday!


Saturday August 20, 2011

Saturday we had another scrimmage, again in Scottsdale, and it was HOT! We were playing a team in our weight class but not in our association, which means this would be the only time we play each other. The coach said if we could hold our own during this scrimmage then our season was gonna be a GREAT season (I guess the Raiders are one of the top teams in the state).
Above is Brendan resting in between plays. He is a starter for both the offense and the defense this season.

Colin is #60 and is playing defensive tackle here...let me tell you...this boy LOVES to hit!
One of the Raiders sponsors is Powerade (yea...they're fancy) so both teams were given Powerade and had their picture taken after the game in front of the sponsor banner.

OH...did I forget to mention that WE DID AMAZING...and we beat the RAIDERS??!!'s gonna be a GREAT season!!

Join in with Sara...It's not to late to join the fun!

Whoa! Is Colin taller than Brendan now or is it just the way the picture looks?

It's okay to have lots of football pics cuz' that is your life and they are a reflection of your family. Great job to your boys!

Love the Lego pics. I was a Lego maniac, still am & my youngest son is a Lego maniac. Building day is fun. My boys did that when they were younger but it was at the Kansas Chief indoor training area & an all day build. They had a blast. Thanks for sharing

Aww...I love it! I am starting to learn the joys of being a football wife - 2nd graders are hilarious.

I was thinking that Colin looks taller now too. Glad their football season is off to such a great start!
