Project 365 (#307 - #313)

Project 365 button designed by

Sunday ~ #307/365

Elisha got to be a part of the skit for the Sunday morning message. He didn't want to do it at first because he was scared, but then he remembered the verse "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" and said yes. It was not an easy decision for him, but he was very excited about it Sunday morning. You can read the rest of the story here.

Monday ~ #308/365

Pastor Willy (our church's recovery pastor) came and told the preschoolers a little about Puerto Rico, where his family is originally from.

Tuesday ~ #309/365

The kids and I made toilet paper roll penguins as models for the daycare craft project on Wednesday. Can you tell whose is who's?

Wednesday ~ #310/365

How come they fight all week at home and can play like best friends at school?

Thursday ~ #311/365

Microwave S'mores for dessert, courtesy of Nutella.

Friday ~ #312/365

Just playin' around with the camera. Nice mud splatters on the window huh?

Saturday ~ #313/365

Getting Elisha to his basketball games this season has been a challenge. Most of the games were scheduled for Sundays and that just doesn't work for us. Unfortunately there are only two more games left. Oh well, he has enjoyed what little season he has had and has made some improvements.

We registered for baseball/softball this morning too. Our lives are officially about to get really busy. I'm enjoying these slower weeks while I still can.

Wanna show us your week. Link up with Sara!



The smores looked yummy...I love Nutella. Loved the penguins too. Looks like you had a productive week. Can't wait to see your pictures next week.

Kim said...

Congrats on your son being brave enough to get outside his comfort zone!
I well remember the days of Little League and the feeling that we practically lived in the car. LOL You're a wise woman to rest while you can :)
Drooling over the s'mores. We can't get graham crackers here :(

Basketball ball on Sundays? That stinks...we started our season this past Saturday and with Colin missing the cut off this year they are on 2 different teams (which will be for baseball season too) We sign up this week and their season will start in early May. And so it begins...sigh! It's what we live for...right?! Love those micro s'mores...yum! And my boys have a love/hate relationship too! And Great job Elisha on overcoming and doing...fabulous! Hope you have a great week.

Boy those smores look great - with all the snow around I've been craving marshmallows :)

So proud of your son for doing something he wasn't sure of - he's young to be making such adult choices. Good for him!

LuAnn said...

YEAH for your son - that is huge.

We like s'mores in the microwave too.

I've missed out on a bunch by not reading up on what's going on. :( I have terrible excuses, so I won't even bother with them. I hope to go back and catch up. Or just give you a call sometime soon.

Yay for baseball season!
