Week 14

Hello again and happy Tuesday!  It's hard to believe we are a week into April already.  How did that happen?  April is going to fly by with so much going on and getting back into the swing of having 3 in swim with 3 different practice times. Our evenings are most certainly disjointed, but we're doing the best we can and that will just have to do! I'm trying not to stress too much because then my kids stress and it's just a huge snowball effect that helps no one.  Keep clam and swim on ;0)  I'll be dreaming of those lazy summer days in June--Can't wait!

In the meantime take a look at how the first week in April went:

Day 91- Monday, 4/1/13
Happy April!  This fool is ready for his first swim practice of the season.  Brandon was supposed to go too but ended up getting sick at school today so he's resting and will have to start Wednesday.

Day 92- Tuesday, 4/2/13
Thanks to the MIND Institute the two younger kids got some court time at Sleep Train Arena with a few of the Sacramento Kings players.  They were shooting hoops with Tyreke Evans, Cole Aldrich, and Chuck Hayes.

Day 93- Wednesday, 4/3/13
I found these amazing hand-made thank you cards on my desk this morning from 3rd graders I presented our outreach program to a couple weeks ago.  They all turned out so amazing and were fun to read.

Day 94- Thursday, 4/4/13
It was a wet and rainy day which meant it was the perfect day for soup and sandwiches at dinner.

Day 95- Friday, 4/5/13
The whole family used free tickets to the Kings game tonight against Dallas.  The tickets were included in the gift bags the the boys received Tuesday.

Day 96- Saturday, 4/6/13
This weekend Rusty decided that Tyler was the perfect pillow.  This was the second time I found him curled up on Tyler in a completely different room.

Day 97- Sunday, 4/7/13
Happy Birthday to John and Bella.  They both had a special day with many fun gifts.  John also got homemade pizza for dinner, and I made my first-ever ganache covered cake as requested.  It turned out pretty good, was super yummy, and a huge hit.

That wraps up another week!
 Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you'll be back for another visit next week.
