Week 39

It's starting to feel like fall!  I love this time of year but I'm not ready--must get the kids some warmer clothes soon.  You feed them and water them and they grow like weeds!  Plus boys wear things out way too quickly.  I can't tell you how many pants with holes in the knees I've tossed.  Ugh!  Anyway happy fall.   

Now for last week's pictures-

Day 267- Saturday, 9/24/11
Tyler is sporting one of his favorite birthday gifts.  Now he can talk with his friends on-line as they play XBOX games.  He couldn't be happier!

Day 268- Sunday, 9/25/11
It's football season which means you'll see this flag flying at our house most Sundays.  Tyler and John are actually going to a game in San Francisico next Sunday (another birthday gift Tyler is way excited about--oh, and John too!)

Day 269- Monday, 9/26/11
Tyler freezing at fall swim.  They're plenty warm in the water but it's a bit chilly when they have to get out and wait in the cold night.

Day 270- Tuesday, 9/27/11
I got to see my little karate master in action tonight.  John has been taking them to Karate since he started so this was my first time seeing Brandon join the group and he's doing quite well--love his concentration.

Day 271- Wednesday, 9/28/11
Justin is the first to get his STAR test award.  Tyler gets his Friday and Brandon is still too young.  Justin is always surprised when he gets as gold medal--the kid needs more confidence.  His brain may work differently than most but it still works in amazing ways and he needs to trust in that.

Day 272- Thursday, 9/29/11
Earlier this morning Brandon was sedated for a brain MRI to make sure there is nothing obvious causing his migraine/vomiting episodes.  They gave him propofol which is all over the news lately because of Micheal Jackson's death trial so that was a little unnerving but Brandon had a great dr and did well aside from acting a little drunk for a couple hrs after.  We were told to keep him home and to choose a quiet activity as he recovered so I bought him he this lego-like Transformers set to build.  It worked perfectly as he happily sat quiet for a couple hrs creating his masterpiece.

Day 273- Friday, 9/30/11
We had a late start to our hot weather here which is needed to ripen tomatoes so we are just now starting to harvest from our plants.  There are about 20 more on the vine continuing to ripen.  John needs to get busy making salsa.

That's all for this week.  See you next Tuesday.


  1. Hope they can figure out what is wrong with Brandon! God bless you and yours!

  2. Those tomatoes are lovely! They really do look cold at the swim meet! I wouldn't like that part.
