Project 365 (#126 - #132)

Project 365 button designed by

Sunday ~ #126/365

Elisha received an award at church for saying 100 memory verses! They get a new one each week so this was a few years in the making, but he did it! With as steadily Bethany is plugging away she should be joining him by this time next year.

Monday ~ #127/365

A parent came to the preschool to tell them what he did at work. He is a personal trainer and brought the "toys" he knew the kids would enjoy the most.

Tuesday ~ #128/365

Our bird Baby got new cage. Please ignore his bald spot on his chest. He is old (19 to be exact) and who knows why he plucks out his feathers.

Wednesday ~ #129/365

Trying to take a picture of the bees in the tree since that other shot I took last week turned out kinda cool, but they are just too fast or always facing away from me. Note: This is the tree that covered our Suburban in pollen.

Thursday ~ #130/365

Elisha imagines what it would be like with long blonde hair :)

Friday ~ #131/365

Bethany loves flowers, ANY flowers and if she can pick them without getting in trouble, even better!

Saturday ~ #132/365

Elisha participated in the Walk-A-Thon to raise money to go to Kid's Camp this year. Too bad it's my money as he "forgot" to get any sponsors. So we made him walk ten laps, cuz' he needed to earn that money. Ten very long, long laps. He made it through with no tears (to my surprise) and said that even though he was tired the ten laps were worth it in order to go to camp.

When got home from the Walk-A-thon we discovered that the first of Bethany's poppies have bloomed. She was so excited I had a hard time convincing her not to pick them.
Okay so how's your week been? And I want to apologize to all of you from 365 who faithfully come by and leave a comment. I'll try to make it around to everyone's blog this week!
And a special thanks to Sara for hosting this picture project!
