Week 13

It's been an absolutely beautiful spring week.  This is what I'm talking about!  We were even blessed with a couple 80 degree days and loved every minute of it.  It's amazing how much a change in weather can change your mood.  One thing that hasn't changed though is how busy we are as you will see.

Here are last week's pictures:

Day 85- Saturday, 3/26/11
  Our new sectional, ordered back in January, finally arrived and fits perfectly in our home.  It's so comfy and spacious.  Of course I had to run out and get a couple new lamps and side tables as well--next week maybe a new area rug ;0)

Day 86- Sunday, 3/27/11
Our family took a field trip to Sonoma so Justin could visit a real mission and get extra credit for his mission project in 4th grade.  It was actually a fun little trip.  We explored the mission, walked around the town, marveled at Sonoma's quaint central park, and ate some yummy BBQ for lunch all while dodging raindrops (see how dark and cloudy it was)--but this is the last of the rain for a bit.

Day 87- Monday, 3/28/11
Bye-bye rain, hello sunshine!  Spring has finally sprung.  Look at the beautiful blue sky and the tree outside our kitchen in bloom.  Love this intense pink color against the soft pale blue.

Day 88- Tuesday, 3/29/11
Tyler's basketball team won the middle school championship for our city.  The boys had to fight hard.  It was a nail-biter, but they worked well together and pulled it off.  They were playing the only team that beat them during the regular season so they had something to prove.  That's Tyler standing in the back.  The trophy's almost as big as he is!

Day 89- Wednesday, 3/30/11
After work I took to the kitchen and banged out a Sonic cake for our family and some cake pops Justin could take to school for his birthday tomorrow.  The cake pops were a big hit with his class but a lot more work than I expected.

Day 90- Thursday, 3/31/11
Today is Justin's 10th birthday.  It's hard to believe I now have 2 kids in the double digits and look how this child is thriving.  He came home from the hospital 10 yrs ago as a tiny 5 lb, full-term baby with an iron will.  Parenting him has taught me patience, understanding, acceptance, and respect for those living in a sensory sensitive world.

Day 91- Friday, 4/01/11
John was not thrilled at the idea of helping with my monthly marker so I enlisted the dog since her birthday is also in April.  Bella will be 2 next week and was pleased to cooperate for the price of a Cheez-it ;0)  Can you tell how badly she wants that silly little cracker?

 And just when you thought we were done . . .

March's Family Photo:

This was taken in the courtyard at the California mission in Sonoma on our little family field trip.  One of these pictures in the future will actually include a smile from my oldest son--that's my goal anyway. 

Thanks for stopping by.  See you next week.
