Week 36

Last week was really crazy with all the kids' extracurricular activities starting up  again, but we survived and will get into a routine that will make it seem not so bad--or at least I hope!  The best part was ending with a girl's weekend to the wine country.  We had the best time, and it was the perfect escape to unwind.  How am I going to top that this weekend?  Maybe a fun family outing.

Now for last week's pictures:

Day 246- Saturday, 9/3/11
Brandon was being really quiet playing upstairs so I went to check on him and found that he had set up a "picnic" with his blankies and friends.

Day 247- Sunday, 9/4/11
It's a really hot weekend so we spent a lot of time in the pool.  The boys are playing "monkey in the middle" with some new water bombs I found in the Target $1 section.  Get it Justin! 

Day 248- Monday, 9/5/11
Happy Labor Day!  It's a perfect day for more swimming and some BBQ.  John is grilling chicken for dinner.  It was such a pleasant evening that we ate outside on the patio enjoying the Delta breeze.

Day 249- Tuesday, 9/6/11
After a months break karate started back up, and this time Brandon is joining the group.  It's his first ever class, and he's so proud and excited.  I even found Tyler's old Gi for him to wear which fit perfectly.  I couldn't go to the class because I was taking Tyler to Davis, but I'll see Brandon in action soon enough.

Day 250- Wednesday, 9/7/11
I've been collecting these box tops all summer and figured it was time to have one of the kids take them in to school.  My eye is trained to spot them a mile away, and nope, I don't cut them all nice and neat or even at all because I just don't have the time!

Day 251- Thursday, 9/8/11
Clearly our summer is not over--still a lot of water sports going on.  Tyler is now doing water polo in Davis on Tuesday and Thursday along with fall swim Monday and Wednesday.  This is his second practice with the new team, and he really seems to like it.  It's a lot of work treading water an hour and a half but also a lot of fun playing the game.

 Day 252- Friday, 9/9/11
It's dragonfly season.  We have these little blue dragonflies all over the place in large numbers especially near the grass.  I've also seen some nice large ones of different colors.  They make me smile.

Thanks for stopping by.  See you next Tuesday!


  1. Love that shot of the Dragonfly! Looks like you had a good week. Hope this one is as good.

  2. Beautiful dragonfly! And it must be really warm where you live... all our pools are closed!

  3. Can so relate to the box top picture. I collect them for our school. I am also so trained to see them. Love your pictures!
