Welcome back and happy Tuesday. It was so nice to have a 3-day weekend right after the first week back to school and work. The kids needed the slower start to get them back into a routine. It's been nice for us to have rain but not good for those near fire damage. The poor Santa Barbara area with the mudslides. Our hearts go out to them. I was hoping with the new year we could leave the disasters behind us, but I guess it's just part of our life now. Maybe moving forward 2018 will prove better in that sense and I sure hope so. Thankfully we here had a pretty uneventful week aside from a little rain and fog.
Take a look at last week's pictures:
We're starting the week with a whole lot of rain so I'm here for a rainy day school pick-up. Justin wanted to ride his bike but it was way too wet. Later he received a late Christmas present in the mail and this light-up Pokeball helped brighten his day and mood.
Day 9- Tuesday, 1/9/18
It's another cold and wet day so I made Brandon an after school cup of cocoa to help him warm up from the inside out.
The neighborhood trees are dripping wet and shine in the streetlights on our evening walk. It's not so much from rain today as it is from late wet fog. And this is how the cat copes with the change in weather. He's decided to do a face plant and just sleep through it. LOL! Good thing he's not a mid-west or east-coast cat. They are way colder than us right now.
Day 11- Thursday, 1/11/18
Brandon's city basketball practices have started and will be every Thursday night for the next couple months.
More thick fog. It's ruining my view and always makes for an interesting drive in. At 9 am all I can see is a white wall out the lab window which is actually kind of depressing. Hopefully this afternoon will be better. A good dose of sunshine would be nice.
Today is the first game of the season and he just so happens to be #5 which was also Tyler's water polo number. He was actually surprised to be starting and playing pretty much the entire game. Time to step it up.
It's actually a nice afternoon so our walk was good and in the park we found still some fall leaves but also some spring weeds. The dandelion's are popping up everywhere. Make a wish!
That's it. Hope to see you back next week.
