10 on 10 October

Well – I’m late with my post today – was supposed to have this up about 13 hours ago, but it didn’t work out that way.  But it’s still October 10th – so here goes.

I’ve joined a group of photographers where we take 10 hours in one day and document that day through images.  I may have taken some liberties with too many images per hour, (and if that’s against the ‘rules’ – I apologize and won’t do it again.  :).  To read a little more about this project – click HERE.

On this day, a Monday;  after the kids were picked up for school, I took the dogs in for their teeth cleaning.  I forgot my camera – so no images about that.

Mikey was star of the week at school.  Over the weekend we were supposed to do a posterboard or something similar all about Michael.  I was planning to make a cork board for his room – so this was the perfect excuse to get it going (and his teacher said it was ok).  So I ran to the store Friday night (after reading what our ‘weekend’ homework was), and bought the supplies.  I did work on it most of the weekend (with soccer games, and a football party fit in there somewhere).  Wasn’t quite finished when Mikey left for school on Monday, so I came home from the vet’s  to finish it.  My husband thinks I’m a bit nuts – and really – I’m not one of those moms that goes way above and beyond for their kid’s assignments, but for some reason, I had to do this one.  (Needed some fun time for me…. 🙂


So – I finished it in the morning and delivered it to Michael’s class.  Had to try to ‘sneak’ these images in….PINIMAGE

A group of neighbor friends and I have a weekly thing – Every Monday, one mom takes 4-5 family’s kids over after school for a playdate.  Therefore, we would have 4 weeks of extra time after school on Mondays, and one busy Monday.  This day was my turn.  I ran to Hobby Lobby to get crafts in preparation for the onslaught!PINIMAGE

Kids came over after school – not too bad – only seven kids – usually it’s 9.  Garage was all set up with crafts and the idea was to keep all the kids outside the entire time!PINIMAGE

Soccer time….PINIMAGE

If I had a girl, we would sit and do crafts all day.  As you see here – the boys went to play soccer and basketball, but the girls continued with their painting.  And resourceful Cloie found a seat!


Snack and Fun chat time!  (notice how we’re STILL outside!)  lolPINIMAGE

Parents came for pick up (Phew!).  ‘Mom look – I have a loose tooth!’PINIMAGE

Time to pick the dogs up from the Vet.


My Girls……Home at last!  I did miss them!


Thanks for reading/looking!  Now head on over to Kit Womble to check out her day!
