Week 5

How is it February already and only 80 days left of school?  Time sure flies.  It's finally raining today!  The past 2 weeks have felt more like spring than winter, and while I enjoy the sunshine and warm temps I'm not too thrilled about skipping winter altogether.  Even the plants, animals, and insects are confused.  I've been fighting off mosquitoes lately and that's just plain wrong in February! 

Anyway, here are last week's pictures:

Day 29- Sunday, 1/29/12
Yum!  Burgers for dinner.  As long as the weather is good John will grill burgers and dogs for us on Sunday nights.  It's a great way to wrap up the weekend and enjoy some family time around the table before the craziness of a new week sets in.

Day 30- Monday, 1/30/12
I was putting clothes away upstairs in the boys' room and caught Brandon in deep thought staring out a window from his bunk ladder.  The click of my camera brought him back to reality, and when I asked what he was thinking about he just shrugged his shoulders, said, "nothing," and trotted off to play.  Maybe it was the chirping of some birds that put him in a trance?  They are pretty loud these days! 

Day 31- Tuesday, 1/31/12
How can this be?  Time to pick the pick High School courses for my 8th grader.  It seems so early, and I'm not really ready to think about him going off to high school just yet.  *sigh*

Day 32- Wednesday, 2/1/12
Happy February!  Justin was sporting a nice red shirt and was eager to have his picture taken so he helped me with my monthly marker. 

Day 33- Thursday, 2/2/12
Now that the days are getting longer we're able to walk the dog while there's still light out, and if we're really lucky we'll even catch a beautiful sunset like this.

Day 34- Friday, 2/3/12
The boys and I snuggled together with a big bowl of popcorn to watch the movie Soul Surfer.  I guess this could be my "weary" shot.  It's the perfect way to unwind on a Friday night after feeling weary from a long, busy week.  John is out of town hanging with the guys again in Tahoe--must be nice! 

Day 35- Saturday, 2/4/12

Brandon and Justin were searching the deep-dark depths of our coat closet for some empty shoe boxes to play with when Brandon came across a puzzle that intrigued him.  He spent a good hour working and keeping himself entertained.  Love it when they rediscover old toys.

That's it for this week.
Thanks for stopping by and see you next week.
