Project 365

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

Sunday ~ 317/365
Sunday November 13, 2011

Sunday night one of Ryan's old student's came over for dinner. The boys love Diana and were so excited that she came over for tacos! She graduated last year and is attending ASU this year.

Monday night Ryan & I headed to The Men's Wearhouse to order a tux for a formal dinner we are attending in December...Oh La La!! We are flying to NYC for a quick overnighter to see his dad inducted into the college football hall of fame. We are SO very excited as we have never been there before.


Tuesday November 15, 2011 I took this pic Tuesday morn before heading to school...I loved the silhouette of Brendan sitting in front of the tree playing.

After dinner I dusted off my running shoes and took a power walk with a fellow teacher. I am sad to report that I haven't worked out in like forever, so tonight was a great night to start up again. Andrea & I power walked around our sub...we were amazed that we could talk as fast as we could walk!

If I haven't said it before...I'm gonna say it now...I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new school that the boys and I transferred to this past August. The teachers, admin, students and families are ALL amazing. We actually do educationally fun things...I know, imagine that! I had worked at my other school for 4 years (in the same district) and we were never allowed to take field trips...not the case at my new school!

Today was the annual Kinder Field Trip to the FARM!!! So much fun! 5 classes went with at least 10 chaperones from each class went to enjoy a fun filled day learning about corn, vegetables, animals and so much more! We also got to go in the corn maze, feed the animals, pick fresh veggies, play on the playground and take a train/tractor ride. I had as much fun as the students did!

Above it a class picture right after we came out of the corn maze (so much fun!) and below is my class in the HUGE vegetable garden. We got to pick beets, squash, cucumbers and cilantro.

(I took close to 300 photos for my class facebook page!!)

I needed a picture for today so right before I headed off to bed I snapped one of my Christmas tree from the bottom looking up. It finally has been fully decorated, but this is the only part of my house to be in the festive mood so far! I was unsure about putting it up so early, but now that it is up, I am loving it...what's a few more weeks to enjoy the season!

Friday November 18, 2011

One Friday a month we dub it DONUT was that day! At our local supermarket they have a promo going that when you buy a dozen donuts you get half a dozen more for free...18 donuts for the price of 12...can't beat that! And the teachers and their kids are loving it too, as we share (otherwise I would EAT THEM ALL!!)

Our school held a toilet paper drive to help a local homeless shelter this week. Apparently this is a yearly drive and they compete against a few other schools to see who can collect the most rolls of TP to donate. Our school has one the TP Trophy (oh yes there's a trophy!) 4 out of the last 5 years! Last I heard we were in the lead this year as well! The class with the most collected rolls gets to mummify our Principal too! class didn't collect the most in the school, BUT we did collect 158 rolls...I think they did a GREAT job! And for a great cause!

This morning I registered the boys for winter basketball season which will start at the beginning of January and run for about 9 weeks or so. Thankfully this year they will be able to be on the same team. Every other year we get to waive Colin up to the big boys team since he only misses the cut off date by a month. Makes our Saturdays so much easier. They will be playing for the same coach they played for last year...he is a great guy (who is also their baseball coach)!

It was also Mom/Colin Boy day to make his Christmas wish list. I went with Brendan last weekend. We started out at Wal-Mart before heading to Target, Culver's for lunch, then to Hobby Lobby and finally Toys R Us.

So now both boys have their Christmas Wish List complete!

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

Your kinder class is too cute - I'll bet they had a great time.

Love the TP drive - that's a great idea! It's easier to just be told to buy one thing that to try to decide from a list...

Love the tree - I'm sure we'll put ours up in a couple of weeks (we're out of town next weekend) - but there's no hurry because we leave it up FOREVER :)

You will LOVE NYC or at least I did! How exciting for Ryan's dad!!

We got our tree up tonight!!

I am glad you are liking the new school. Field trips are so much fun.

Wow, you never got to take your kiddos on field trips? How sad. I personally don't enjoy them, but my boys always do and I know it's nice for the teachers to get out of the classrooms once in a while.

I love your tree, and you're right- what's the harm in enjoying the season a few weeks longer?

My boys are asking to play basketball. I'm going to look for a summer camp and save myself the stress of more practice and game schedules during the school year.

What a cool idea to have a TP drive. Love that. Yeah for NYC coming up so quickly. I sure wish I could be there with you. Wish You were coming home for the holidays this year. Missing you all so much. Not fair. Tell Auntie Angie I said "hi" when you whisk in and out of NYC :) Yeah for field trips. Looks like a fun time. As long as no one gets lost. LOL XOXO What does my godson want for Christmas?
