Project 365

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

Sunday ~ 263/365
Sunday September 25, 2011

Sunday was a sad, but bittersweet day at the McCraken house...Kayla went back to live with her mom and sisters. After 7 months it was time for her to go back. I am hoping and praying that she takes back all that she learned while living here. I will miss having another girl in the house.

Monday was the start of WCHS's homecoming week! Each day was spirit day on campus and each night they had something fun going on...Monday night it was the powder puff football game, Sr. girls vs. Jr. girls and some of the varsity football players cheered them on! Here is the ending stunt of their halftime was quite funny!

With October right around the corner, so is Breast Cancer Awareness month and with that brings pink socks to my football players. They received their socks and helmet decal at practice on Tuesday night. They will wear their pink socks the remainder of the season to promote awareness.

Our science unit at school is on Living vs. Non-Living Things. On Wednesday we 'planted' lima beans in ziploc baggies with wet paper towel. Hopefully we will see some sprouts in a few days!

Thursday September 29, 2011

Thursday was Apple Fun Day in Mrs. McCraken's kinder class! Our afternoon was filled with all things apples! They did math, science, literacy, and of the favorite stations was the apple tasting and graphing station! Red apples were the favorite this year!

Friday night brought us to the WCHS Wildcat homecoming game. It was a GREAT game and WCHS pulled out a VICTORY against the Eagles 44-13! This was the first time we were able to go onto the field after the game, so you can bet I took that opportunity to snap a few family pics with the scoreboard behind us!! Great Job Wildcats!


Saturday October 1, 2011

Saturday was a noon game and it was HOT! Even though the CATS couldn't pull out a win, losing 13-6 against the Ravens, both McCraken boys had an outstanding game making their blocks and tackles. Brendan is above making his tackle and below is Colin getting in on the action. Ryan and I were so proud of the way they played yesterday.

After the game the team had a photo op to showcase their pink socks and their support for breast cancer awareness...even the cheerleaders got in on it with their pink socks!

Cousin Kennedy was able to make it out to the game along with grandma & grandpa. After they showered up, the kids and grandma headed to the movies and dinner.

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

I found Brenden right away in that group pic, but it took me a while to locate Colin!

Pink socks, eh? I understand why you do it, but do all the boys like it? Just curious, I know how boys are!

WE had pink shoe laces for the cheerleaders. One mom that is a breast cancer survivor got them for all the girls. Very special. So jealous that you are still in capris. Gah! It was so cold today I wanted to stay in bed all day with a heated blanket. Burrr. We had to break down and turn the heat on because it was like 66 in the house. I love the apple unit. That is such a fun one! Love the graph. Love the family picture! Did you just have a pedicure? Still in sandals...Gah! So not fair. :)
