Project 365: Week 9

March 3, 2012

T1 wants to know why it is not the Project 366 this year. That’s a good question.

For the week of Feb. 26-March 3rd

This first picture is not the best but I want to save the better pictures for something I’m going to do weekly. I was enjoying the sunshine while both girls were participating in an advanced skills soccer camp. It is a good camp run by the coaches of the area travel teams and the girls soccer team from an area high school. We do not play travel. I’m sure the girls were not the only Parks & Rec players there but needless to say I did not know any of the parents. The sessions are being held at the fields of an area private school to boot. Lining the walkway are these nice benches. I noticed the metal plates on the arms and looked to see if they honored donors, etc. To my surprise they had great positive sayings on them. I then walked down the entire walkway snapping pictures. I hope to post one a week and, if I can figure out Linky Tools, encourage people to write as well.

This next picture is the tunnel under the street that connected the practice fields with the main building of the private school.

I like the light at the end of this tunnel and that it leads toward the school building. Education = enlightenment.

In honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday I found stars.

Stars for Dr. Seuss

“But McBean was quite wrong. I’m quite happy to say
That the Sneetches got really quite smart on that day,
The day they decided that Sneetches are Sneetches
And no kind of Sneetch is the best on the beaches.
That day, all the Sneetches forgot about stars
And whether they had one, or not, upon thars.”
The Sneetches and Other Stories by Dr. Seuss

I always find it fascinating when you can see the moon on a bright, clear sunny day. Hope you can see it too. (I am just using a Canon Powershot after all…)

I hope you can see the moon too!

Spring is trying to arrive early no matter what the Punxsutawney Phil says. I won’t believe it until I see it, however, because I have had several snow storms on my birthday in the middle of this month.

Today soccer camp was canceled due to the conditions of the field. The rain has kept Crook and Heddie inside and they were starting to get destructive. We decided to take a hike. T2 took my camera and took these last two photos for me. Yes. That is me. Yes I really do not like pictures of me unless they are professional pictures but T2 got a good one this time. Sorry, I’m in baggy workout clothes and not a Wonder Woman t-shirt. I should have been.

Yup, that's me!

T2 was really pleased of herself for capturing the reflection of the trees on the flooded out path. She’s quite the photographer. Now to delete the dozen pictures of the swamp. LOL
