Project 365 (#335 - #341)

Project 365 button designed by http://richgift.blogspot.com

Sunday ~ #335/365

Bethany outgrew her cleats and had to have new ones for this softball season. She wanted me to take pictures of them.

Monday ~ #336/365

Happy Birthday Harmony!
My niece's birthday is on Valentine's day and her mom asked if I could take pictures of her with the almond tree in the background.

We also did our annual Build a Bear trip, in which Teddy and Princess get to pick out new clothes.

Tuesday ~ #337/365

Ordered another free canvas from the Canvas People.
I only had to pay shipping!

Wednesday ~ #338/365

What I really wanted a picture of was the way the clouds looked in the night sky. But, alas they did not turn out. So I practiced shooting on manuel mode and got a sorta decent picture of the moon instead.

Thursday ~ #339/365

It's been raining here on and off since Sunday night, but it really let loose on Thursday. I took this picture hunched under my umbrella with my camera low to the ground. It's not quite what I had in mind, but I like it anyways.

Friday ~ #340/365

Every time Elisha pulls that blanket over him he falls asleep. I may just do a post about it one day soon :)

Saturday ~ #341/365

Bethany's music teacher encouraged her to write her own song, since she loves to show him new melodies each week. She usually has them memorized (short term) but he wanted her to write them down so she won't loose that ability or those fun songs from these early years of keyboard lessons.

Baseball/Softball season officially has begun and we had two practices this week at the batting cages due to the rain. Be prepared, if next week is a bit nicer I may have lots of ball pictures to share. Or not, cuz' I might think that's a little over the top. Now I'm off to Sara's blog to see what everyone else has been up to this week. Ta, Ta!

That is a very cool rain photo! Like the moon shot too -- you're the third one with a moon photo that I've seen so far today :)
Love hearing about family traditions -- the bear one sounds very cool!
Lots of great photos!

CM said...

The bears are so adorable, that's cool that they still love them up. They will have them forever, I bet.

The "silly song" reminded me of Bob and Larry from Veggie Tales!

That One Girl said...

Aww! I would love to start a B-A-B tradition, but we don't have one around here. :-( The closest one is about 2 hours away. I imagine that we COULD do something like that but, that's quite a long drive! LOL

Life at the field has begun, eh? i sure miss those days!!!

sweet picture of your boy sleeping!

rita said...

Where is it raining so much?
Your almost tree is such a beautiful backdrop. You could start charging for photo sessions.
I went and looked at all your photos in the previous post. Great!
Good practice for the future songwriter ;) Is Bethany headed to Nashville? :)

The Bug said...

Love your moon shot. Our moon was in a cloudless sky so it looks like a ball on black. Love the new cleats. I used to love getting new ones when I played softball. Love the Build A Bear tradition too. Too fun.

I love taking the children to BAB and cry everytime they jump up and down to jump-start the heart.

My kids have always wanted to do Build-a-Bear. I've sort of put it off. I think the whole process overwhelms me a little. Maybe I'll have to take one kiddo at a time! LOL!

That blanket does look cozy......
