Project 365 (#35 - #41)

Project 365 button designed by

Sunday ~ 35/365

We came from church Sunday afternoon to find our hot water heater erupting (literally!) all over the back room. We had to scramble to turn off the water to the house because we did not know what else to do.

Monday ~ 36/365

A new hot water heater was installed and all was right with the world again!

Tuesday ~ 37/365

Due to the rain on Sunday and Monday we still had puddles and mud and so the kids' games were both cancelled this week. That means we will be very busy when they get re-scheduled.

Wednesday ~ 38/365

Elisha colored this on Sunday but I just realized today that he gave Jesus a "Jesus Rocks" shirt and thought it was pretty funny!

Thursday ~ 39/365

My mom and dad came from Oregon for a short visit because they were coming in the area anyway (well if you count business a few hours away another area!). Bethany got to show off her reading skills while doing her homework with Grandma Judy.

Friday ~ 40/365

We visited the Marina and flew kites again. The wind was perfect and there was even another guy there flying his kite who gave us some pointers. This is a picture of my mom and Elisha trying out his advice.

Saturday ~ 41/365

Elisha slides while stealing 3rd base. This was the first game my mom and dad have ever seen him play and he did well. Bethany also had a chance at third and got another girl out while playing that base. I had the misfortune of missing it because I had to scorekeep at Elisha's game but Grandma and Grandpa did not miss it!

My kids loved having their grandparents at the game and hope they can come again next year.

Well there you have it, another week gone flyin' by. Wanna join in the fun? Visit Sara's blog to see what others have been doing with this project.

Oh bummer about the water heater. Our regular heater went out a few years ago and it was so expensive. Thankfully, we have never had to replace our water heater.
So cool that the grandparents got to participate in so many cool activities with the kids.

I always loved it when my grandparents were involved in my life.

So sorry to hear about the hot water heater but glad life is back to normal with a new one.

That stinks that you had to get a new water heater...thankfully it didn't flood the house though! And how great that the grandparents were able to spend some quality time with the kids and you! My boys always love it when grandma and grandpa come to their games! Hope you week goes smooth with all of those make up games!

Fun memories and not so fun all mixed in one week = life.
Any water damage?

The Bug said...

LOVE the Jesus Rocks shirt - that's great!

Your kids are so cute in their ball uniforms.

Michelle said...

Wow! What a busy week. Sorry about your water heater, but I'm glad it was fixed rather quickly. Did anything get damaged? (besides the water heater) We had a toilet hose blow 2 years ago and that was NOT fun.

What a blessing grandparents are! Glad they came to visit you.

I did not do well this week with my camera. I think I'm going to forfeight this weeks project 365. :(
