Project 364: Days 308 Through 319

Note to my readers: I didn't intentionally try to make my Project 364 mostly about Sam this time but it seems that is what happened. I will try to feature Rachel more prominently next week :)

November 5, 2014 -- We had Family Putting Laundry Away Time and the kids and Dave were putting their laundry away as fast as I could fold it, especially Sam. When I walked into his room I discovered he had just piled it all neatly on his bed to efficiently put away everything at once at the end. He is so my son!
November 6, 2014 -- I went along on Sam's school field trip and caught this picture of him on the bus.
November 7, 2014 -- Speaking of being my son, Sam read his first blog post this day. It was written by my friend Sherry about her family's Hallowe'en.
November 8, 2014 -- We had a quiet day at home and got some of Sam's "homework" done. Here he used a different medium to "write" his name AND he made an art project out of things he had found in nature. Sam's "homework" is more suggestive than prescriptive, and assigned on a monthly basis, but he loves doing it.
November 9, 2014 -- Sam standing with the leaf art print he created at LOGOS, which was hanging on the windows looking into the sanctuary this day.
November 10, 2014 -- Sometimes I have exciting kid free afternoons while Rachel is at preschool, and other days I have to do a quick trip to drop something off at Sam's school, before I've had a chance to shower after getting some exercise. (Also some days my only picture for Project 364 is a selfie I've already posted on Instagram. Sorry.)
November 11, 2014 -- Some days my only Project 364 picture is a picture of my husband in the mirror at midnight. Note: Dave is always thrilled to cooperate with my weird unique ideas.
November 12, 2014 -- I spent my kid free afternoon assisting Janice in making this ornament wreath. My main task was to provide the glue gun and moral support and to drink tea.
November 13, 2014 -- We had our first snow of the season this day. Farewell grass. I shall miss you.
November 14, 2014 -- Rachel wanted to participate in Crazy Hair Day so I gave her some hot pink streaks.
November 15, 2014 -- Sam was very committed to reading "The Fellowship Of The Ring." I posted a picture similar to this on Instagram but this one was taken with my "real" camera!
November 16, 2014 -- We went to check out Play With Clay at a local art gallery. It was a lot of fun.


  1. We've had our first snow of the season too! I can't believe it! I love the wreaths that you made. So cute!

  2. I like the way Sam thinks too! That's how I do it. I fold it all and separate into piles by owner and then carry the piles all at once to put away. Much more efficient! ;-) Of course, we try to get Evan to help put his clothes away, but with all his grumbling and complaining, I would rather just do it. Haha! Evan is not my "helper" child...that title goes to Brody. And I do hope Sam enjoyed his first blog post. :-) And I think I need to make that wreath for my front door. I love the bright colors and need something similar to go with the new bright color of our front door.

  3. I love that you're still keeping up with your Project 365. I kind of miss doing it and plan on bringing it back next year. Especially knowing I'll have a tiny little person that won't be able to say no to photos makes it that much easier to think about tackling!


Thank you for being interested in my life as I blog it and for leaving a comment. Comments make me happier than reading a good book and drinking a cold Coke. Almost :)
