Project 365

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

Sunday ~ 8/365
Sunday January 8, 2012

Early Sunday morning Gramma headed back to Michigan and reality began to set in that today was our LAST day of Christmas Vacation...nnnoooo...say it ain't so! With that being the case, the house was cleaned, laundry was done, and grocery shopping was did!! I always go through ad papers and price match at that is what I did! With price matching and coupons I am able to save a little bit in our grocery budget which seems to get bigger and bigger with 2 growing boys in the house...they are eating me out of house and home!!

Came home for a quick minute before heading back to school for the PTSA meeting (yes, I am on that too!) and captured this picture of a dad & son moment. They were wrestling around on the couch and the minute I got my camera out Brendan tried to hide...I love how he is peeking around Ryan. Can't believe he is gonna be 12 in 2 months!

So we are back into the swing of things with school and life. We are HALF way through our school heard me right...we have 90 school days left until summer vacation...but who's counting?!

No slowing down now...lots of whole group learning going on in my kinder class...all about weather, temperature, bears, fiction vs. non-fiction. For what ever reason they LOVE using post-its notes, so I have been doing a lot of charts lately where they can write/draw things and categorize their answer...yep...lots of learning going on!

Friday January 13, 2012

Today was Quarter 2 Awards Celebration at school. Brendan received Principal's Honor Roll for straight As and Colin received Honor Roll for As & Bs (bummer no pic of him!)


We left school early today and headed to PCH for Colin's check up with Dr. B. His results came back normal...Thank You Jesus...and he is doing just fine. Dr. B said he is naturally weening himself off of his meds since he has been gaining weight with no up in his meds. Because of the great results no need to see him again for a year unless we see a seizure (which we haven't seen in a year!).


Saturday January 14, 2012

Saturday was the start of Basketball season in the McCraken House...thankfully the boys are on the same team, which makes Saturdays so much easier for me! They are on the Scorpions. Real jerseys this year as the PHX Suns are sponsoring our rec dept basketball this season. We are Jr. Suns.

They dominated on the court beating their opponents by more than 20 points (after one team is up by 20 they stop putting points on the board). We think the Scorpions scored at least 60 points but the final score read us winning 33-13. Both Brendan & Colin scored and played a very good game!

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

LOVE Dr. B's tie - fun! I'm so glad that Colin is doing well with his seizure issues.

Brendan is a cutie - tell him to quit hiding!

Praise God for a good report for Colin!!

90 days left of can't start counting yet, can you? ;)

I know I have told you before but thank you for the gift of learning you give to your students! I recognize all of your hard work just by the pictures you post. And, Post-It note learning has to be one of the most fun things I have seen in a while!! (Maybe you should send them the pic too, showing how you use them in your classroom and maybe they could supply you with some!)

Have a super week!!

So happy Collin's report was good!

So glad to hear that Colin's report came back fine. His doctor looks so sweet. Yeah for the win on the BB game. Ours not so much. All three of mine scored and played well. The girls just couldn't pull out a win with only one sub. Tired.
Love father/child moments. We are so fortune to have good daddies in our kids lives. 12 gah! don't I know it. CRAZY!

Looks like a very productive week with lots of good stuff! I feel ya on the grocery bill.... Seems like everytime I have the boys here for a weekend, we spend an extra $130 or so just for food the 2 days they are here! They eat everything and tower over me in size now. Actually had to stand on my tiptoes to kiss my 13 year old last night!!! He's still his mama's boy tho! :)
