Week 37

Where did the weekend go?  There is so much to do and so little time plus being gone on weekends doesn't help.  Last week was super busy and of course this week will be more of the same. Sometimes I'm not sure if I'm coming or going.  It's a good thing I have my boys to keep me straight.

Here are the pictures from last week:

Day 252- Monday, 9/9/13
We started the week super hot.  It was still 100 degrees out at 5:30 just before I needed to walk the dog.  The sun was intense, but we found a few sprinkler spots for relief.

Day 253- Tuesday, 9/10/13
They had to rush through homework today.  These two had tennis, then Tyler had a water polo game, then the younger ones were off to karate.  For dinner-- grab and go Subway.

Day 254- Wednesday, 9/11/13
It's back-to-school night at River City High School and Tyler is showing me around his classes.   I must be getting old because most his teachers look so young!  This is Tyler's Body Systems class and each student gets one of these little skeletons to add clay muscles, tissue, and organs to.  At the end of the class they'll have a completed person inside and out--super cool elective class that he loves.

Day 255- Thursday, 9/12/13
Brandon decided to give tennis a try and so far so good.  Look at the form on my lefty ;0)  He told me he really had a lot fun today as I tucked him into bed at night.  It can be hard to keep them active logistically, but the benefits far out weigh the trouble.

Day 256- Friday, 9/13/13
It's my lunch hour and I'm out running my car through a car wash because I just can't find the time to do it any other way.  Right after work I need to run to the store to stock up on tourney food for tomorrow, get the younger kids to tennis, and then put in a couple hours at the booster's snack bar for football.  I can't wait to put my feet up, enjoy a glass of wine, and watch a movie with my hubby.

Day 257- Saturday, 9/14/13
Tyler and I are at Bear River High School near Auburn for an all-day water polo tournament.  The boys had another great run and took first place.  This tournament wasn't as big as the last one so no trophy just bragging rights ;0)  Now we get a 2 week break before their actual league games start.

Day 258- Sunday, 9/15/13
It's another day-long event with my oldest.  He's involved in a teen brain study through UC Davis and got to play computer games while having his brain scanned.  We were here for almost 6 hrs!  Thank goodness they had wifi and I had my labtop.  Tyler also made over $100 today for participating so he's happy about that.

That's it!  This week I'll be prepping for a birthday party which is always fun.  Check back next Tuesday to see how it turns out.  Tyler will be 15!  How can that be?



  1. Busy, busy week. I agree that sometimes I have to wonder if I am going or coming. Crazy! Tyler's class looks fun, and way to go on the water polo tournament! Hope your next busy week goes well!

  2. I know what you mean about teachers looking young, especially since some of my son's high school teachers are the age of my oldest daughter!

  3. You are such a supermom! I hope I can juggle everything as well as you do when my kiddos are older and involved in extracurricular activities. That brain study Tyler was involved in sounds really cool!

  4. I don't know how you keep up with it all!
    I hereby dub you the Super Mom of the week! :)

    That's neat that Tyler got to be involved in that study, & especially since they paid him $100. Did he split part of that w/ you for spending 6 hours of your day there? :)
