I have mixed feelings about this project coming to an end. On one hand, this challenge helped me document an entire year, forcing me to really look at my surroundings and enjoy the many moments that – without this project – may have passed by without notice, and I am grateful I can relive these camera captured memories for days and years to come.

As Project 366 comes to a close tomorrow, I made a point to capture the sun when it rose this morning, as well as when it began setting tonight. Thankfully, today was a sunny day. We’ve had several cloudy and/or rainy days lately, and the rain and clouds are expected to return tomorrow. I hope you’ll return tomorrow, too.
I am so proud of my boys. They clean up after each meal, enjoy working in the kitchen. and take the time to write thank-you notes. I am so happy that I am raising them properly.
Hahahaha! Oh, I crack myself up. I cannot take one ounce of credit for anything I’ve mentioned. The cleaning up after each meal comes from their Montessori education, and the working in the kitchen and the thank-you note writing both come from Rob. I basically just bark out commands and yell when directions are not followed or rules are broken.
Maybe my New Year’s resolution will be to follow the example set by Rob. Hahahahaha! Oh, there I go cracking myself up again.
The Legos and I are battling. We have a large basket full of various pieces and parts. I dumped the basket and went through each and every piece. I pulled out anything that was not legally tied to the Lego family, which included Erector set pieces, Lincoln Log pieces, blocks, and other sundries.
I feel sorry for the Lego people, some without heads, some without legs, and some heads without bodies. I tried to rescue as many as I could, though I am certain I was not able to rescue everyone. I’m not sure when I’ll get around to marrying the people parts together, perhaps before Christmas 2013.
Today I spent the day at the office, also know as the home of my boss, also known as the home of Little Lily. Like many, she’s still a bit tired from the holidays.
