Project 365 2010: Week 27

by Wendy Copley on August 23, 2010

Dang it! I’m totally behind again on my Project 365 stuff. I’m going to try to catch up over the next few days, so brace yourselves!

July 2, 2010: Augie runs across the back yard with one of his beloved plums. Our neighbor’s tree rained plums down on our driveway for several weeks and every time we went outside I spent the whole time trying to keep Augie from eating rotten plums.

July 3, 2010: Now here Augie chows down on one of the ones we picked from the tree. The other challenge with the plums was keeping the boys from eating so many plums that their digestive tracks blew out.

July 4, 2010: Wyatt got to try out his first sparkler on the 4th of July! We were at a friend’s house for the afternoon and in addition to putting on super hero costumes, the kids ran around the yard with sparklers (closely supervised, of course!).

July 5, 2010: Wyatt decided it was “red day” and collected as many red things as he could fit on the pull out cutting board.

187

July 6, 2010: Trying on Dad’s sunglasses. He looks a little Tom Cruise-y here, I think.

July 7, 2010: Wyatt and I had a free afternoon after his morning pirate camp (Augie was at day care) so we got lunch at his favorite restaurant, Denny’s (?!) and then we went to the bowling alley. He totally kicked my butt, but in my defense, he got the bumpers when he bowled and I didn’t!

189

July 8, 2010: I had completely forgotten about this incident until I pulled this photo up! Wyatt was up to one mischievous activity after another and finally got sent to his room to get his act together. He fussed and whined about it for a very long time, but then things went quiet. I knew better than to think he had calmed down so suddenly, but I was so thankful for the quiet that I decided to just let it go for a bit before checking to see what he was up to. Before long, he came out of his room, dressed all in white with his body pressed up against the white wall. He inched along for a bit, convinced he was camouflaged and that his dad and I couldn’t see him. I actually think that Augie didn’t notice him at first, but eventually he got to the oak bookcase and the jig was up! Busted!

    Wendy…In 2008 I did the 365+1 (leap year) and documented it on my blog. it ended up being the BEST thing I could have done, as in March my Dad was diagnosed with esophagial cancer and in October he died. It ended up being a great “journal” of the time spent with him thos 9 months. I did mine in a weekly planner instead of the big scrapbook…the project is on my blog SOMEWHERE:)
    By the way, I too was never caught up with it;)

    omigosh, the white Wyatt is hysterical — what a clever kid!

  • That is hysterical!!!

    It is things like *this* why I so wanted to keep up with this project myself! So many funny things that would make great memories…as long as they don't get forgotten!

  • You need to cross #51 off your list. đŸ™‚

    I want to know what you find for #20 – I'd love something like that too!

    Can't wait to see what you include in #23

  • OMGosh, that kid is hysterical! Got to love a good imagination :o) Just came across your blog for the first time & love it! Looks like we have a lot in common too…

  • It’s not just a good summary but a really good headline. This is the first thing people will be attracted to.
