Project 365 - Week 20

Week 20.

Well, it has been a crazy busy week for me as Jason ended his High School years.  It is a very weird feeling!  It was different with Alyssa, because we moved in the middle of her senior year.  In fact, we moved and she stayed 3 more weeks to finish her classes and graduate early.  So, we didn't have all these "last" days or all the emotion...we were too busy trying to get settled in a new home and worried about her being left behind.   I am not sure which has been more emotional.....but I was glad for a somewhat slow weekend!!!

For those of you who answered the questions in my post yesterday...I will be posting the true answer Monday!  If you haven't read it yet, go try and figure out what is true and what is false!!!

Here's my week:


Jared performing at the AR Youth Academy Symphony Concert.


Jason being awarded the LRCA Christian Service and Character Scholarship from the PTF.


Jason's last day of High School
This was taken at the Senior Goodbye! 

Tonight the youth had a Mario Cart tournament.
These are 2 of the 3 TVs they had going in our house.
These are just the first 4 to arrive.
My son, Jared, was the winner....I am so proud...hmmm.


Many of you comment on my magnolia picture.
I finally got a bloom low enough that I could reach and show you just how BIG they are!!  Isn't this gorgeous?  and the smell.....heavenly!!!

I love grilling season!!!
BBQ chicken and asparagus tonight..yum!

my neighbors grandson is the first one to swim this season.
If you look close enough, you can see his teeth chattering! ha!
So how was your week?  Link up, join us and share your week in pictures!

Sara, what a special week. That magnolia flower is breath-taking! It's so beautiful and yet so perfect it looks fake! God's creation is amazing.
I'm glad you're having a relaxing weekend. You deserve it!

LuAnn said...

What great memories for your family this week.
Your flower is beautiful & we love grilling too.
Have a great week.

Rita said...

Hoping you'll get through this emotional time with as few tissues as possible!
That picture of you and the boys is great!
Your magnolia is a beauty! So big and perfect!
I just love it when it is time to grill again! And yummy grilled asparagus!

Lisa said...

Crazy week is right! What a special award for Jason...congrats!

Yay for grilling!

Good thing Jared is so accomplished is many other areas other than video games. :)

Wow, that flower just doesn't look real.

Dena said...

What a week full of fun, special memories...including the mario winner. ha!

Congratulations to both your sons all all their academic and musical accomplishments. I know how proud you must be of them both.

Oh my goodness that magnolia bloom is even more glorious than it looked previously. I can almost smell it from here.

A week with a lot of "highs" for Jason and an emotional roller coaster for mom? :-) But distilled down to the basic level, I think you could probably sum it up with one word: JOY. Joy at his accomplishments, joy at being able to be a part of it all, joy for the promise of seeing how God will use him in the years to come.

Lots of great photos!

Amazing magnolia. Love 'em and wish we had one. Maybe someday :-)

Have a wonderful week!

He & Me + 3 said...

OK...all i have to say is...that is one big flower and I am still not convinced it is real. LOL WOW. My flower this week looks like an ant compared to yours.
Love to BBQ to.
Your week has been busy and emotion packed I am sure.

Jill said...

I have been praying for you Sara! WHAT a busy time and delightful time and bittersweet time!!

LOVE the photos. I am hungry for bbq and asparagus! YUM. We have Magnolia's here but the blooms are about 1/4 OR LESS of the one in your photo! GORGEOUS!

Mocha with Linda said...

What a fun week. I love grilled asparagus!!

H-Mama said...

You have every reason to be proud! ;) Emotional is right, (((Sara))).

Your flower is picture perfect! The girls have recently learned about them... as every southern girl should. ;)

Grilling... Yummmo. My hubs needs a new one before we can fire up!

What a fun and memerable week I am sure...can't imagine! Love the mario much fun! And that blossom is beautiful...didn't realize how big they were until I saw it next to your hand! Hope it goes well next week...My hubby's seniors last day was Friday and they gradute this Tuesday!

The Bug said...

LOVE the magnolia picture! We saw a magnolia tree yesterday with about four blossome - but they're still all balled up - not open yet.

Check out my pictures - Martha Goose says Congratulations to Jason LOL.

Tori said...

What an amazing week of celebration and moving on to the next part of the journey!
Your flower looks fake, but gorgeous! :)
We've been grilling a lot too...things just taste better that way.
Can't believe your pool is open!!!! Crazy!
Have a super week!!

rita said...

Didn't know magnolias got that big! Is the fragrance proportional, then? Glorious!
A lot of fun, joy, accomplished goals!
And, food, of course. Have never had grilled asparagus! Yummmmmm

RaD said...

You're making me hungry! :)

Looks like the first half of your week was really busy! I'm sure we'll see grad pictures coming up soon!

Rebecca Jo said...

That Magnolia doesnt even look real!!!! How beautifuL!

Robin @ Be Still and Know said...

We had our Senior Recognition Dinner at out church last night. It was great. I made up for my lack of pictures this past week by snapping almost 200 images.

That magnolia look amazing, so does that chicken and asparagus!!!


Talkin' Texan said...

Man I want some of that chicken!!!!
I'm trying to find a magnolia bloom around here low enough to sniff, but I'm not being successful. :(
Love your photos. Have a good week!

Catching up...

You have two amazing sons, don't you?! I know you're so proud.

A Mario Kart tournament is such a good idea.

Magnolias. Perfection.

That pool pic is hilarious. I'm so afraid of being cold, I always wait until like July 4th to even stick my TOES in a pool!! I want it bathtub warm!!!
