Project 365

Okay so I have been following this project on Mimi's blog for a while and I always think I should try that too. Then Michelle and I got to talking (okay, leaving blog messages and e-mails) and we both decided we'd try it out. So this is week one of the Project 365, we started on Monday.

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.

Look at you keeping me in line! Your bug pic was great and the flower pic is amazing! I bet you had to get right up on that thing to get it just right!

I'm glad Elisha is starting to feel better. Hopefully next game he'll be all better and be able to play.

So glad you could join us!!

I love the fact that the whole family plays video games together. I have to confess I'm not as "game" (excuse the pun) as some others around here when it comes to that sort of thing.

Love the ladybug pic. And I think that weed is quite nice, too. ;)
