Week 18

Welcome back and welcome to May.  I'm so happy it's May.  April was way too busy for my liking and at least there is light at the end of the tunnel in May.  Summer is upon us and it even feels like it here--hot, hot, hot!  Still windy but hot.  The younger kids are going through STAR testing which means little if any homework and the break has been so nice.  It's hard to believe we almost have another school year done.  We have a lot of fun things planned for the summer so I can't wait for the family fun to begin.

Until then here's what happened last week:

Day 119- Monday, 4/29/13
Bella likes to be in the kitchen on the cooler floors when it starts to get hot.  She always lays with her left leg out and her right curled under her like this.

Day 120- Tuesday, 4/30/13
This is a common scene almost every afternoon now that swim practice is in full effect.  I have to get a good coat of sunscreen on my fair skinned boys before they head out in the sun.

Day 121- Wednesday, 5/1/13
Justin and I posed out back with the monthly marker by one of my many rose bushes in bloom. It's nice to see the yard come to life this time of year.

Day 122- Thursday, 5/2/13
These two!  On Sunday at a water polo tournament Cameron somehow broke his foot on Tyler's shin.  I still can't believe he actually broke it so when I saw them together at swim practice today I had to snap a shot.  I can just see them in 10 years with Cameron saying, "Remember when I broke my foot on your shin."  LOL!

Day 123- Friday, 5/3/13
The Teen Hero applications were due today.  Tyler is applying for another year to volunteer at the city kid camps for the summer.  He had a great time last year and it was a wonderful experience for him.

Day 124- Saturday, 5/4/13
John's work decided to switch from Blackberry to iPhone, and he got his new toy this week.  Too bad it has taken him most the weekend to figure out how to transfer all his contacts and info.  Blackberry did not make it easy.

Day 125- Sunday, 5/5/13
Justin helped me plant our tomatoes today and then we cooked up a huge Mexican feast for Cinco de Mayo.  Yum!

That's all I got for now.  Thanks for stopping by and see you next week.



  1. Love your roses! I can so relate to the sunscreen shot--every track meet is like that. Glad things are slowing down for you! Your Guac looks so yum!!! have a great week!

  2. Love the picture of the boys together with the boot and the shin. That is a great and memorable remember when.

  3. Great photos! That must have been one heck of a kick. Was your son okay?!? They will probably laugh about that for the rest of their lives! And yes to sunscreen--2 fair girls on an outdoor swim team = lots of sunscreen purchases through the summer!

  4. You are brave to spray your sunscreen indoors - I have two fair haired kids too and we go outside on the porch to spray :) Things don't slow down here for two more months and I cannot wait!!

  5. What a week! I could imagine you are a pretty busy person. That is too funny about his foot! That was a great idea to get a picture of them together with his boot on!

  6. I just ♥ all the daily pics you take.
    They're all so different, yet tell such a story of this time in your lives.
    From the sunscreen to the broken foot to the roses and start of May.
    ♥ ♥ ♥ it all!!!

  7. The family always looks so happy!! Love that! Your roses are looking fab...btw, when we used to spray sun block when standing on the carpet after awhile...we started seeing big stains! Just thought you might want to know.Have a great week.

  8. Another great week of photos! I love the May photo of you and Justin! And that is too crazy about Tyler's teammate breaking his foot on Tyler's shin.

  9. Love how you capture moments in the boys lives weather big events or little ones, they will love having these to look back on. Wish I had ones from our squad training when I was young... It would be great to show my boys now.

  10. Great week! I'm a little jealous that you have all that summery weather already :) We have had a chilly spring, but it's warming up.

    Yay for no more homework :)
