I know I took a picture of one of the seasons we own last week, but we just got this one! And since we choose not have tv in our home (we own a tv and a dvd player, we just don't have tv stations in our home) we haven't seen this yet. Very soon we will know the answer to who killed Trudy Monk!
Monday ~ 15/365
Elisha had a practice game and so Bethany always plays with this little boy when she is at his games. Ironically they were both wearing the same shirt!
Tuesday ~ 16/365
Wednesday ~ 17/365
This picture of the clouds looked much better in real life than the picture I took of it but oh well.
Thursday ~ 18/365
Friday ~ 19/365
Saturday ~ 20/365
Bethany got player of the game on Saturday! Yay! Coach said it was because she always has a smile on her face, is cooperative and does her best. Great job, Baby Girl!
Can I just say I'm lovin' this photo challenge! It's a lot of fun and is almost like a photo journal of our days. Almost. This photo challenge is courtesy of Sara. You can join in the fun at any time, so if you are interested get out that camera this week and link up with her next week!

"Mommy, you are so beautiful like that."
"Oh," I reply, "Thank you, Son."
"You're welcome, you look just like you got out of the shower."
So apparently to my eight year old son, I look beautiful when I get out of the shower and my hair is all wet and dripping. Go figure!

10/365 ~ Wednesday
Always a comedian!
11/365 ~ Thursday
Harmony had a practice game so we dropped by for a bit. She's learning how to play catcher and not doing too bad for never really playing the position before in her life.
Yes! 20 is the best score you can get and I did it! Of course, I choose which tests he used to measure my brain age instead of him giving them to me randomly. Nevermind that I picked the ones I was especially good at!
13/365 ~ Saturday
Entertaining themselves on Opening Day while waiting for the other one to get their pictures taken.

My six words this week, when my kids get older:
I'm really gonna miss opening day!
Even though it took what seemed like forever for the kids' teams to get called up for pictures...
Even though we were at the ball fields all day today, I'm gonna miss when they are too big for this anymore!

Actually I think we only went one time last year and so when we went this year the kids barely remembered it. But they did remember our tree...
...which they have always loved to climb ever since the first time we discovered this park when Elisha was three and Bethany was not even two yet. We've taken some neat pictures of the kids climbing on this tree.
In fact, the very first picture that I took that I was satisfied with and gave out to all our friends and family was of Elisha on this tree.
Koda, our five year old German Shepherd mix, decided he wanted to be in the tree too!
Not quite what I had in mind when I took this picture, but I love the way it turned out nevertheless!
Taking pictures of kids and dogs...
... can actually be quite comical!
Ah well, I thought the grassy hillside was perfect, but Bethany really wasn't havin' it and Koda was wiggly. This is the best picture of the ten that I took!
Running on ahead, being free, being kids, enjoying life!
Can I just tell you that our dog LOVED this bench. He's rarely in the house (only at night) and when he is he's not allowed on the furniture. I don't know what got into him, but he just had to sit up there.
This girl loves this time of year because the ladybugs are out in full force. At one point, my fearless ladybug hunter told me she had eight ladybugs in her hand!
Gotta love those trees.
A view of our city.
(I have a feeling she's gonna be mad at me for this photo one day)

The goal is to take one picture a day for an entire year.
365/1 ~ Monday
We went to annual church conferences and didn't get home until nearly 10 o'clock. Both of the kids went straight to bed (in their clothes too!) and were asleep within minutes.
365/2 ~ Tuesday
Getting a healthy dinner cooked is a trick during baseball and softball season, so during this time of year I take advantage of the crockpot for meals I need prepared almost as soon as we get home. Dinner tonight? Teriyaki tri tip, green beans and parmesean butter noodles. Quick and into the bellies within 20 minutes of arriving home from practice :)
365/3 ~ Wednesday
Yohn is doing what he does best as manager of The Source (and no, he wasn't just playing on the internet, that's my job).
365/4 ~ Thursday
Thursday nights we try to always make family nights and with Elisha not going to practice due to a sore neck (he's doing better by the way) we had extra time. It was Elisha's turn to pick, which almost always means we play a video game together. Yes, we still have our N64 hooked up, it's right next to our PS2. While we don't play it as often, some games I just can't give up.
365/5 ~ Friday
Friday brought lots of rain, and rain bring beautiful flowers! I know this is probably just a weed, but it's pretty just the same.
6/365 ~ Saturday
Friday's rain saturated the ball fields and the kids' games were cancelled. However, Saturday was a beautiful day and we spent some of it outdoors at a local park (not a playground type of park, but the kind where you just walk around and look). The ladybugs were everywhere!
Okay so I gotta admit, I almost forgot a couple of times, but by the end of the week I was anticipating and plotting what to take a picture of. I think this is gonna be fun. Can't promise I'll last the whole year, but since Michelle is starting at the same time, and I'm kinda competitive, I'll probably stick with it.
