Project 365

I am such a slacker...I didn't post last week thinking I would just do I 2 week catch up, but not thinking I deleted my memory card to make room for my football pics...oh well! I will start where I left off!

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

Saturday ~ 255/365

Saturday September 17, 2011

Saturday night the boys and I headed to Movie Night Under the Stars at the Stadium! We watched Rio on the jumbo tron (which we had not seen yet, believe it or not!) It was very good and we all enjoyed ourselves!

Sunday was picture day for the CATS...I love these pics that I took of the boys...too bad Bren decided to be a brat and close his eyes. I wouldn't keep them open for the life of my camera! Hopefully he cooperated with the photographer since the pics were ex.pen.sive.

Monday September 19, 2011

Monday I started partner reading in my class. This was a first for the year and all of the students loved it!

Colin at football this kid!

Wednesday September 21, 2011

Wednesday was picture day at school. This was after school (since I lost track of time before school and missed my photo op!) Before school their hair was all gelled up and looking good.

After school we headed to WCHS to catch part of the frosh game. The boys (Colin especially) loves to be on the field whoever is playing! We left at halftime to WCHS losing :(

Friday Night Lights...Coach Mac and the Wildcats!

Ryan talking to his defense...they played a hard game on Friday to a tough team. Ryan's defense held them to only 41 points...the lowest point total of the season. WCHS lost to the Cougars 41-7.


Saturday September 24, 2011

Saturday found us back at the football field for the boys' game. It was a HOT one as the game started at noon. Above is Brendan.

Monday, since it was Labor Day & no school, my mom, the boys & I headed to the movies...the boys went to see The Smurfs & my mom and I saw The Help...gotta love $5 movie mornings!


Tuesday September 6, 2011

Tuesday night at football practice...I am SSSOOO ready for it not to be 110* anymore...blah!

Wednesday September 7, 2011

Wednesday at school, another kinder class joined my class in a little science experiment on the 5 senses...What's under the red sheet? Using their 5 senses, the students had to predict what was under the red sheet...after making their predictions, we found out that it was a popcorn popcorn and an episode of Magic School Bus for all!

Thursday September 8, 2011

Thursday after school our 1st grade team along with the PTA hosted a root beer float party for families...I helped out at the fun event taking pictures of all of the yumminess!

Friday September 9, 2011

Friday = Game day

WCHS Wildcats vs RJK Cougars

Above is one of Ryan's players taking out the quarterback...NICE...quarter back sack!

At half time the Wildcats were ahead 14-0 and then they suspended the game due to lightning...that meant all fans had to leave the stands and wait in the parking lot for at least 30 are some of the coach's kids taking advantage of our car's DVD player.

After about an hour of waiting they officially suspended the game due to lightning and the impending storms. The second half was scheduled to be played Saturday morning at 10am.


Saturday September 10, 2011

So here we are...Saturday morning at the 2nd half of the WCHS Wildcats vs. the RJK Cougars

They started at the 3rd quarter with the Wildcats being up 14-0.

The Cougars came out with some motivation and scored on their first 2 drives. With about 2 minutes left to go in the game we were up 27-20 but there were some Cougar tempers flying and there was not 1 but 2 fights on the field (one being a bench clearing brawl). After the 3rd attempt to kick off after they scored and more unsportsmanlike conduct penalties (on them, NOT us!) the officials called the game....WILDCATS WIN!

After Ryan's game ended the boys and I headed over to their game. It was a HOT one...they were playing at 2pm about 40 minutes away.


Colin was a captain today and both boys played awesome! (look for more to come this week in a Football Frenzy post!)

Sadly the Cats could not pull out a win and lost to the Wolverines.

Cats 6 - Wolverines 8

Always good sports though

Some friends came to see the boys play today! It was a nice surprise! Too bad we couldn't pull out a win...we'll get'em next week!

Sunday was a lazy day today...we were all still recovering from the late Friday night football game, early Saturday morning football game and the HOT HOT HOT. Above is how Brendan spent most of his his pj's, watching TV. (not sure why I couldn't turn this pic...oh well!) Below is Colin...he is obsessed with these spirit cups their football team is selling.

Monday August 29, 2011

Monday we did story sequencing at school for one of my most favoritest book...Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See?


Tuesday August 30, 2011

Tuesday night at football practice, the boys were practicing hitting, blocking and tackling. Here is Colin dominating!

Wednesday August 31, 2011

After school on Wednesday the boys and I stayed after to paint these spirit signs for their football team! They came up with the sayings, I painted it and then we all glittered!

Thursday September 1, 2011

Football fundraisers...I have told you lately how much I loathe fundraising?? I know I know, it gets the team much needs funds for all sorts of fun things, but you can only ask someone so many times to buy something...sigh...

Friday September 2, 2011

WCHS Wildcats played their in-district rivals on Friday is Ryan giving his players praise after they recovered a fumble. Sadly we could not pull off a win, this being the first time in 6 years to not win...blah. I hate to say it but we lost to VV Monsoon 20-7.


Saturday September 3, 2011

A late night on Friday and an early morning on Saturday did not make for a very happy mommy...but I did it. I was in bed about midnight, up at 4am so we could be to the field & ready to go at 5:30am for a 7am kick-off. WELL...they boys played AWESOME and the Cats came away with a I guess that made up for it! (ok maybe not...I came home and spent the rest of the day in bed sick...blah!)

Saturday on the Field

Last night (well last Friday night) we were at Ryan's home opener and because we are in the middle of a heat wave and a week long heat advisory, kick off was pushed back by an hour, starting at 8pm instead of 7pm. And because of the late start, we had a late finish...sigh. We got home after 11pm and their game on Saturday was at the butt crack of dawn...for an 8 am game we had to be at the field by 6:15 am...ssssoooo.... that means we were up and out of the house by 5:45 am.

SO...with that being said, the boys made a 'dead man' out of their uniforms so they didn't have to think when they woke up!! lol

Saturday August 27, 2011

Cats vs Suns

We have moved up a level in our association, last year we were on a jr. pee wee team...this year we are pee wee! And with moving up that means a new team; we had been Cobras for 3 years...NOW we are CATS!

Some of their teammates moved up with them, and others are new to play with, but the kids are really working well together and I am excited for a great season!

Brendan is still #80 and Colin is still #60, although they are both playing new positions this year!

...coin toss...

One of the coaches getting them ready!

It was H.O.T. On our way to the field at 6am it was already 96*.

Standing on the sidelines

It was so hot, that I didn't even get a lot of pictures. We came home after being outside for almost 5 hours spent. We all showered up and spent the rest of the day chillaxin'.

Sadly the Cats could not pull out a win on their home opener...they were up against a bigger, faster, stronger team.

Cats 0 - Suns 19

Better luck next Saturday!
