Project 365 - Week 20

Well this has been a roller coaster week for me. I had some highs and some low lows and was was very lucky to have only forgotten once to take a picture.

Actually, as I look at these pictures, they don't really represent my week all that well.......I did all those things and they were part of my week, but I wasn't able to capture the "meat" of my week. Maybe that's what makes project 365 so wonderful.......I will most likely remember those "big" things, but these little things would be forgotten without a picture!

So, enjoy!


This is what Mother's Day is all about......


Steve's mom has to leave today :(
We had such a great time while she was here!!!

Then she called an hour later....
...her flight was canceled and she can't get out till tomorrow.. back to the airport!

Tuesday finally happened....
I missed a day taking a picture!!

Today was so busy...airport, doctor, fasting blood work, NO COFFEE (that right there is the problem!), work, torrential rain storm.....need I go on?

so, you get a silly Lily picture!!


New hair cut!!!!

I love it! But the likely hood that I can get it this straight again or to even look like this tomorrow is very slim!

Jared came to me tonight and said....
"mom, I need cookies for class tomorrow!"

"better get busy!" I said

....and he did!!! completely by himself!


Started this today....
...not my friend right now.....oooowwww!!

That's a lot of ocean....

....for this puzzle my daughter is doing!!!

Now it's your turn!!! Link up below and show off your week!

Loved the puzzle pics-very artistic. And the cookies? Probably my current favorite, although I haven't had peanut butter cookies for a while now. I must check out Shred. Everyone's doing it.

Love your description of “meat” of the week vs. the little things. Perfect!

Sun: Precious.
Mon: Such a story behind this . . . . :)
Tues: Not so silly! I actually clicked on this photo to see it larger (WAY! Larger) I couldn’t be sure, but that dog sleeps like our dog, Gracie. With its butt right in our faces! Hilarious!
Wed: GREAT style! Were you able to recreate it?
Thurs: I can’t make Peanut Butter cookies that look that perfect. Who is Jared’s home-ec teacher????
Fri: This….. I just don’t participate in stuff like this. Hahahahahahahah
Sat: omigoodness. How cool is that?????

A lot of WONDERFUL little moments. Thank you for sharing the precious moments of your family. Have a wonderful Lord’s Day tomorrow and a great week, Sara!!!

Kim said...

LOVE your haircut! It would be nice to have a stylist stop by every morning and fix it for us, wouldn't it? :-)

At the rate I'm going, I'll forget the big AND little things if I don't have a photo of 'em. LOL

sara said...

Elizabeth, you are right!!! It is Week 20, so I edited the post.....see that is indicative of my week!

Esthermay....I have "sort of" been able to recreate it, but I still like the hair cut!

Lisa said...

I have been hearing so much about Shread...sounds painful!

I really, really like your hair. How DO the stylists do it??

That is such a cool puzzle.

rita said...

Big week.
Lots of love, fun, family!
I really like your new hair cut!
OMG the globe map, amazing!
I just finished world map, a month-long project in my middle school ELL classroom. I love the globe concept!

Christine said...

Sara, I love your insight on remembering the little is so valuable. Sometimes I think the little things are so much more important. is crammed with is crammed with heaven.
Sometimes its the little things that help us see.
Thanks for all the inspiration! I hope you new week is FILLED with highs!

Liz said...

I hope you don't mind, I jumped in half way through. I saw 365 Project when I was reading your Friday Fill In last week and thought I would do one too. I posted mine yesterday because I hadn't even read your beginning blog. Now that I have, I might switch to Sundays. But, it is fun and I hope you don't mind. :)

Elizabeth said...

Debra said...

Love the new haircut! It seems everyone is going short and sassy for the summer. It really looks fantastic on you! Love all the pics and btw did you glue that puzzle together? Just wondering how you got it to stay together while holding it like that. You mentioned bloodwork and fasting....I hope you are ok! Let me know if you need prayer. :)

Jamie said...

Love the cute!!!

That puzzle looks like a fun challenge.

Debra said...

Sara, I hope you are able to get everything balanced out! To answer your question about the husband and I spend a ton of time looking for songs for our music ministry. We find a lot on the internet by looking up artists and listening to songs on itunes or We also go to christian bookstores and listen to tons of soundtracks and we go to their websites and listen to their clips of soundtracks. It is very time consuming, but worth it because we've found a lot of great songs to sing in church.

Smilingsal said...

Love that haircut!

Yep, nothing can stop me from blogging, but I may miss a day here and there. Still praying.

Darla said...

love the haircut, love those cookies, and the fact that your son can make them, but that shred video messed it all up! please stop torturing yourself and have a cookie! :D (actually i wish i was motivated to do that)

It has been a CRAZY week, and I have so missed coming by here for my daily Sara dose! When you left me a comment on my last post, I saw your profile pic next to it and had to click over to see the fabulous new style - I love it! It looks perfect on you!
