Project 365 | 9.29.2011

I'm crying uncle at the moment for P365. I have all the photos taken and I will go back and fill in the blanks within time. But with 31 for 21 starting tomorrow... I cry uncle.
I'ts getting cooler out. The big boys - Ryan and his friend from next door, want to try out for baseball at the Jr. High mid Oct. And the little one, Matthew, wants to play outside at whatever he can get anyone to play. It's really nice to be able to take out a book and sit down and watch them play...

30 day challenge | day 18 | your shoes

Shoes - I have alot of shoes. My husband will agree with that. I am not a dressy girl. I dress for comfort. Don't get me wrong - I like to look nice and to be as stylish as I can get. But, more often than not, you will find me in flip flops. Living in AZ, you can get away with this for most of the year. It's nearly Oct. and we still have tempatures hovering near the 100's.
So - these shoes. On the left - my flip flops. What I put on when I got home, getting ready to go get Matthew from school later.
Of course, then I had to go back and put back on the shoes that I wore to work - LOL! Because I forgot to take a photo first. This is my first pair of running shoes. The pair that I went from couch to 5K in. Now I wear them to work. I spend 2 hours and 15 minutes on my feet from 10am to 12:15pm. On the playground and then in the cafeteria - watching over kids, setting tables up, cleaning tables, pushing tables to put them away and then getting the floor ready to be "Zambonied". I was able to wear my "cute" shoes and flip flops in the last couple of years, but this year it just doesn't work. So - tennies it is. I have another old pair of Nike's that are retired from running too that I also wear. When it get's cooler and I can wear jeans, I will get out the boots and see if I can push tables in them.
But until then - these are it...

30 day challenge | day 17 | technology



Dude and technology. They pretty much go hand in hand. It's pretty amazing to think about sometimes - how much digital cameras, computers, cell phones, MP3 players, tablets, touch creen smart boards at school and all that are so much a part of our lives now. It's also so amazing that this generation will not know life without these things. Amazing.
He loves my point & shoot camera. He knows that I usually keep it in my purse and that if he gets up and I'm on the treadmill or in the shower - he can sneak it out of my purse and take photos. Although, he loves to take videos even more - ROFL! Smart little bogger!

30 day challenge | day 16 | long exposure

Plan A didn't seem like it was going to work out today either, so I tried plan B that a friend suggested. That totally didn't work out. So I was going to settle on plan C. But after getting the kids in bed, I revisted the idea of plan A, only an hour & a half after I had wanted to do it. I wanted to try this right after the sun had set, but I think I'm really glad that I had to wait. I don't think I would have caught the airplanes in the sky like I did had I been there earlier...





This assignment had me giddy... I have wanted to try something like it for awhile now and it was just so fun!

30 day challenge | day 15 | silhouette


Once again, what I wanted to do wouldn't work out. I wanted to wait until sunset and get "that" shot - the boys holding hands (more than likely it would have been giving me attitude instead - LOL!) - silhouetted against a gorgeous sunset. But reality crashed in and between homework, playing outside and getting dinner on the table, it wasn't going to happen. So here is my "while we're outside playing" shot that had to do instead....

30 day challenge | day 13 | myself with 13 things


I was really kinda stumped as what to do today. I had it in my head to have 13 of my favorite things, but it just wasn't the ay to do that. Ryan and I went to see Transformers that afternoon, and inspiration struck on the way home. I only had my point and shoot with me, so it had to do. Oh - and add 2 more pieces of popcorn in your head... I was thinking my feet counted, but then realized that was the "myself" part after we got home - LOL!
I was really kinda glad to document of time together, without embarassing my teen boy!  :) We pulled into the gas station to get gas and quickly set it up and took a pic. Kinda fun...

30 day challenge | day 12 | sunset


Ha - of course we had a sucky sunset that night. I didn't think I was going to get it at all, but we managed to go past the freeway at just the right time and we stopped for a brief minute for me.
The next night was absolutely gorgeous for sunset, but oh well.  :)

Here's a few other sunsets that I've caught. Although the next one is a sunrise...

Dude after school playing his DS...


I also had my last appointment for my arm today. They took off the layers that had been put on and I graduated to putting hydrogen peroxide on it ever hour or so. I can wear regular bandaids on it, but it's still really yucky looking...

It was a 2 Starbucks kinda day - LOL! Not really, but I stopped and got a coffee this morning and they stamp the back of your receipt and you can get another drink for $2 after 2pm. So I did!


It was also Curriculum Night at Ryan's school, so Michael & I went. We thought we'd have a bit of a Date Night out, but then figured out that they had us scheduled the whole time we were there. Oh well! At least we were together and had no kids! :)

We had an appointment for Matthew after school today to get him fitted for new arch supports for his shoes. I always think that I'm ordering them in time and I always find out that he's totally out-grown the pair he has and has needed them long ago. *sigh*We came home and waited on the curb for Daddy to come home. Rubber glove from the Doc's office in hand...


Then I found one of the praying mantis' again. Not sure if he was too happy with me... see the drop of water on his head in the last one?

Project 365 | 8.10.2011

First Day of school. We now have an 8th grader and a 3rd grader...
I always take the photo in front of the door, as sort of a reference point of how tall they are getting. You can see the last day of school here (with the 1st day's posted too).




I decided to let him get milk at school this year - steps towards independence of a sorts. So - here he's holding up his milk money...



Such solemn expressions from the teen...



Tried to get one hot of all of us together - focus is off, but we were running out of time at this point...  First and last day I've worn jeans to school this year - it's entirely too hot!!!


He asked for a photo under the orange tree and the light was yummy there...
