Week 25

I can't believe we're heading into the last week of June already and it's raining here so it doesn't even feel like it today, but we're supposed to be back to normal or even hotter by the end of the week.  We need the rain so I'm fine with it as long as it's during the week and not on the weekend.  Of course it was another busy week with lot's of shuttling the kids around--it never ends and my gas bill is killing me, but the kids are having fun so that's what counts, right?

Take a look at how last week went:

Day 168- Monday, 6/17/13
Since Tyler and I were not home on Sunday for Father's Day we decided to celebrate today by taking John out to dinner at Red Lobster.  It actually worked out nicely because the kids didn't have swim practice today, and we didn't have to fight the usual Father's Day crowds.

Day 169- Tuesday, 6/18/13
I'm playing laundry catch up and having to slowly space it out through the week so my couch has become a sorting and folding station.

Day 170-Wednesday, 6/19/13
The boys started summer camp and Justin is trying the Sports Camp this year because it is in the same complex as his tennis lessons so I don't have to figure out how to get him from point A to point B while I'm at work in a completely different town.  So far so good!

Day 171- Thursday, 6/20/13
John is out of town on business again which means the boys have a long wait at swim practice.  Justin is waiting for Brandon's age group to finish so he can swim with his group next and then Brandon will play the waiting game.  It makes for a LONG afternoon and it's very hot out, but we found a nice shady spot to chill.

Day 172- Friday, 6/21/13
Brandon loves helping walk the dog in the evenings and he's so proud that he's finally big enough to be the one to hold the leash.  It makes him so happy to be able to do this, and he looks forward to the day when he can take her out on his very own.  They weigh about the same right now so I won't be ready for his solo flight until he's got some more pounds on her.

Day 173- Saturday, 6/22/13
Let's go West Sac!  We're back in Clovis for the water polo Jr Olympic trials.  It was a very long, hot and exhausting day.

Day 174- Sunday, 6/23/13
Done! We just finished day two of the water polo tournament and are so ready to head home.  Sadly Tyler's 16&under team did not qualify for Jr Olympics even though they played their hearts out and did us proud, but the 18&under team qualified so we're all happy that at least one team will go to represent our West Sac club.  It's the first year any of our boys have made it to Jr Olympics so the coach is supper happy, and next year will be the year we send both teams!

So much for another week.  Check back next Tuesday for more crazy fun.



  1. What a great Father's Day photo of your husband w/ the boys.

    You are such a good Mom to shuttle your kids to different practices & be there for them & hold down the fort while your husband is out of town & work full time! I only have 1 child, so I can't imagine how you do it with 3. You get the Super Mom award for sure! :)

  2. Hope you are surviving being single mom this week with all the crazy summer here and there. Love the relaxing photo of Justin. With other siblings, you are always waiting for someone! have a good week!

  3. Sounds like another busy but fun week! I love the photo of your hubby and boys at the Father's Day dinner. I like your sorting and folding laundry station, too! My living room looks a lot like that on laundry days.
