February 24: Community Forum

These old posts were from my effort to post a picture and short post every day in 2010 to help commemorate the year.  I've deleted most, but kept some with pictures or events I still want to remember!
Poor Phil had to go outside at 10 and 11. He's not the only one left out in the cold. Nothing like a community forum that minimizes the input of the community.

February 20: Academic Tourmament

And I met a really great media specialist... who is losing her position.

February 19: Senior Night

Lots of seniors. The score of the game was 6-0 after one quarter, 19-0 at the half. Other developments involved the Star and a called meeting.

February 17: Disappointing School Board Meeting

At least the Boys to Men part was good, although I was there to see the knife twisted in person. I could have been watching Purdue and the Olympics

February 15: I Meet Dr. Cuthbert Soup

Meg has a snow day that becomes an early release day; we shell out $$ for Meg's car, Jerry's car and my car! (and hear Alfie Kohn in between)

February 13: Breakfast at Mama's, AIME, and Christmas

Wish I'd gotten a better group shot than I did, and the all-argyle shot.

February 10: Get My Drift?

Meg goes all the way to Purdue and back, and then gets stuck in Hancock County-- several times.

February 9: No More Wisdom for Brett

As Brett said, the best picture would have been right after his surgery. He refused to pose later. His appetite came back, but he still couldn't swallow pills. Nurse Meg had a snow day, so it was a family event. Job loss via text message?

February 8: Blue Monday GIG

Alicia, Jen and CyBret create proof that they were there! It was my first caching event since November.

February 7: Super Bowl Sunday!

Had a fun time at the Gaineys'; everything was good except the outcome of the game.

February 6: It Felt Like a Snow Day!

Sleeping in, "I Love Lucy" marathon, basketball, and more. Our street often affords gorgeous views, especially fall and winter.

February 5: Snow!

It was a blue Friday, which was also the mood of many staff members! If ever we needed a weekend... Go Colts!

February 3: Not Again!

What do today's live morning announcements and this picture have in common? No sound!

February 2: Lost in More Ways Than One

With the Smoke Monster revelation, I want to go back and see a few things again. Plus, as usual, I fell asleep for the last 10 minutes. And then Meg's car wouldn't start...

February 1: Look What I Got Today!

Do you think I waited until Feb. 2 to open it? It was also the Science Fair, with several former Creston greats serving as judges, and the kids looked great!

January 31: A Better Day

Meg in the pulpit, spaghetti, Purdue basketball, and Potbelly's instead of Bruno's.

January 30: Just about Everything that Could Go Wrong Did

The Mt. Vernon basketball game was about the only thing that went as it should. Otherwise, it was a few hours at the library, solo and ensemble, trying to print a wp.s file, and losing the daily draw-twice.

January 22: It's Colts Blue Friday!

A day that started with the surprise of seeing my blog post in the paper, went through 15 8th grade classes in the media center, all through a horrendous headache, but ended with my friends and dinner at the club.

January 21: A Passion for Learning

A treat to watch enthusiasm for learning, following a trip to the doctor and bizarre medical lab stop.

January 18: Like a Kid in a Candy Store

After a long lunch with Debbie (so long that our desserts were free) and before I read more about living the year biblically....and before the final holiday pie of the season.

January 17: Go Colts!

We weren't finished working at Lucas Oil until after midnight, so I figured why not count this for the 17th; I already had too many good things to decide among for the 16th! I spent most of the daylight hours with my dad.

January 16: Purdue Scholars' Day

Meg is sitting in front of my first home. My parents lived here when I was born, and Brett lives almost in sight of it now. A few extra buildings have been demolished, so my old home is next to... the Purdue Press Box! Talk about a fan from birth!

January 15: Queen Lexi

Today was also special for Barbara's birthday party, and work on the TV studio.

January 12: Zeta Cooking Show after Library Board

I missed getting all the attendees, but I did get the stars of the show!

January 9: One Sun Returns, One Son Leaves

As my astute son said before he left, 14-1 and we're resting for the playoffs, lots of football, and I'll remember Meg's SSN from now on.

January 6: A Day Concentrating on Students

A student stopped me in the hall to show me some drawings inspired by one of our new books. The greatest joy I observed all day was when I asked him if I could take a picture of them.

So the days will NOT run together.

I recently heard several mentions of Project 365 from my Twitter PLN (disclaimer: I don't contribute that much, but I learn SO much from the people I follow.) So, I have decided to use my 365 Project to chronicle what I perceive at the time to be the most significant event of each day.
