Week 22

Happy Tuesday!  It's the last week of school here and then we are leaving for a small vacation. Southern California here we come!  Last week was all about kids and last minute school stuff.  I'm so ready for a break.  Three more days until freedom :0)  Luckily we'll be leaving here during a heat wave and traveling to much cooler temps down south.  Go figure!

Take a look at how last week went as I dream of next:

Day 147- Monday, 5/27/13
We're home for Memorial Day and John is making us pulled pork sandwiches for dinner.  He slow cooked the meat on the grill all day yesterday and today we get to eat the yummy goodness. 

Day 148- Tuesday, 5/28/13
Justin's 6th grade class went on a field trip to Mercer Caverns and I tagged along to help.  It was a great trip with a great class.

Day 149- Wednesday, 5/29/13
I'm eating a picnic lunch with Brandon as he shares his 3rd grade writing pieces with me at the school's Author Day.

Day 150- Thursday, 5/30/13
I'm back at the school again for 3rd grade awards.  Brandon is was so proud to receive his math medal for passing his multiplication test and then he also got an award for academic excellence and perfect attendance.  Smart cookie!

Day 151- Friday, 5/31/13
Justin is waiting for his turn at swim practice.  He usually waits at home and has John bring him later, but John is here helping set up for the swim meet tomorrow.

Day 152- Saturday, 6/1/13
It's June 1st!  Tyler is sporting some post-meet, swim hair as he poses with my monthly marker.  It's been a long day in the sun and heat so now it's time to relax and maybe laze in our pool.

Day 153- Sunday, 6/2/13
Brandon pulled together his last school project so he can present this week.  He had to find 3 things that represent and important person in his life and these are the 3 things that represent his grandpa Shook (my dad)--an avocado because he grew up on an avocado farm, the hat he wore to fight forest fires working for the Forest Service, and an RV because in his retirement he travels the country working as a campground host.

That's it.  Looking forward to a week with no homework and the end of the school year.  See you next Tuesday after our long weekend in the LA/San Diego area.



  1. That is so cute about Brandon's school project about your Dad! And, how fun that you got to go have a picnic lunch w/ him while he read you his writing pieces.

    I hope y'all have a GREAT time on your vacation in California. Can't wait to see pics when you get back. :)
