207. Back-to-School Community Album & Photo Contest Winners REVEALED!

 It’s funny how sending our kids back to school can unleash such a range of emotions.  Getting them back into the swing of the new school year feels like such a relief but it’s a new game when your baby climbs on that big bus for the very first time.  I had a vision of the day we reach that point with our kids while viewing this photo submitted by a Barrington mom named Lindsey.
There’s something a little bittersweet about the return to school at summer’s end.  Off they go with bright eyes, a bigger shoe size and a new air of confidence you don’t remember from last year.

I’m feeling the love out there for our young students after viewing the pictures submitted for our Back to School Community Album & Photo Contest.  It is clear how much you cherish these children and we are right there with you.

From preschool to high school, there are students of all ages represented in our collection, thanks to dozens of parents who shared their favorite photos with captions.
We’ve drawn the names of 3 winners, but some of the photos caught my attention for clever touches like this one, submitted by a Barrington mom named Maria.  With that sunny smile, I have a hunch your little AJ aced his kindergarten debut!  (Even though it might have been a little rough on his mom ;)).
I picked up some great ideas for next year, thanks to the moms who took that extra step, adding info-props to their pics to forever remember these special little milestones…
We have to give a shout-out to the students who hammed it up a little for their photos.  No sign of nerves present with these kids!……

121. “Great Dads of Barrington” Father’s Day Contest Winners Revealed

 One of the most rewarding things about publishing 365Barrington.com is the opportunity to get to know more about you.  We try hard to just be ourselves here and we so appreciate when you let us in on a little about your lives.  It has been an honor to read more about some “Great Dads” in Barrington who were nominated by people who love them in our Father’s Day Photo Contest this year.
At dinner tonight, I put the name of each dad nominated in our contest into a bowl and had my husband draw the first winner.  The person who nominated our first place dad will receive a really cool prize, thanks to L.L. Bean at the Arboretum of South Barrington.  It’s the choice of a $50 gift card to spend at the store or a kayaking session for four people on the Fox River, part of L.L. Bean’s Outdoor Discovery School.  When my husband drew the name of our first winner, I felt so hopeful that maybe this gift will help this family, just a tiny bit, through a really tough time.  (We’re thinking of Landen and his mommy tonight.)  Our first prize from L.L. Bean goes to…
Landen Ried & his Dad, William

Nominated by his son, Landen Ried
What Makes Your Dad Great?
“My daddy William Ried lost his life on May 2 this year.  He was an amazing father that would do absolutely anything for me. We enjoyed working on his Mustang, going to Lake Arrowhead, and going fishing. I am going to be turning 4 this year. My daddy was going to be 27 three weeks after he died.  This is going to be a really hard Fathers Day for me this year and my mommy is trying to figure out how to make it a little less horrible for me.  RIP: William Ried 5/25/86-5/2/13”
(Note to Landen’s mommy – Your little rock star is so lucky to have you!  We can tell his daddy will always be cherished on Father’s Day and every day of the year.)
My 4-year-old daughter, Grace, drew the name of our second winner tonight and this one is very appropriate!  Because this “Great Dad” has five children and seven granddaughters and I’d say, for a big family like that, a $50 gift certificate to Barrington’s new Meatheads Burgers will come in quite handy!  The new Meatheads restaurant is opening in Barrington this July right next door to Heinen’s Fine Foods at the Shops at Flint Creek.  And the second winner is……

66. Spring Break Photo Contest Winners: REVEALED!

 It’s election day in Barrington and we have results to announce in a vote of our own. We’ve tallied the results from our 2013 Spring Break Photo Contest and have not three, but FOUR winners to announce, because there’s a tie!
We’ll get to that in a minute, but first, the photo which received 32% of the votes cast, the most in our contest, is this one from the Heick family that we call “Spring Break & The Funky Flu Crew”.  They had high hopes for a fun family spring break, but the flu had other plans……
