Week 19

Happy Tuesday!  I hope everyone had a great Mother's day.  My gang is always wonderful at spoiling me and making me feel special and appreciated.  Did I say May was going to be a slower month?  Well not this week.  John is out of town so I'm juggling things on my own which is never easy.  Hopefully I don't drop too many balls.  There are a lot of projects but also fun things happening as we work towards the end of the school year, swim meets are starting which means very little weekend time, and I'm trying to organize all our summer plans.  My head spinning, but hopefully if I can make through this month I'll be good.

Here's is how last week looked:

Day 126- Monday, 5/6/13
This afternoon the clouds rolled in and it even rained a little bit as the younger kids were coming out of swim.  Then there were a few lightening strikes so Tyler's water polo practice was cancelled.

Day 127- Tuesday, 5/7/13
Justin had to stay after school for a meeting today so it was just me and Brandon heading home for a quiet afternoon together.

Day 128- Wednesday, 5/8/13
This new lavender plant I put in the side yard is doing really well and is just the right shock of purple I was looking for.

Day 129- Thursday, 5/9/13
Flip-flop season is on!  We're off to the pool for swim practice.  The time trial meet is next week.

Day 130- Friday, 5/10/19
My boys are loving this Friday afternoon.  Tyler is even home, and they all found a video game they like to play together.  It's about time!

Day 131- Saturday, 5/11/13
The backyard pool is ready and it's balmy out so this weekend was the perfect weekend for our first dip of the season.  I'm surprised my boys even want to swim but they had a blast just messing around and cooling off.

Day 132- Sunday, 5/12/13
Happy Mother's Day!  I had a great day with my boys.  They made me breakfast, washed my car, made me diner and showered me with gifts and love.  What more could a mother ask for?   Then we all watched the season finale of Survivor together while eating gelato and macarons--Congrats Cochran!

That's all folks.  Check back next week for more crazy fun.

    I ♥ that picture of Brandon walking across the street.
    Also the one of the boys playing video games together, and the fact that it captured such a sweet moment in time.
