Week 38

Happy Tuesday!  We had a really great week last week--busy as usual but also a lot of fun. It's almost time to bring out all the fall and Halloween decorations. I do love this time of year. Hopefully the temps will continue to cool and we'll get some more fall color soon. 

In the meantime look at what we did last week:

Day 259- Monday, 9/16/13
Brandon was having a good time rolling around on the floor with Bella.  This is exactly where he wants to be right after homework is done or maybe even on a break during homework ;0)

Day 260- Tuesday, 9/17/13
Tyler had a minimum day so I had to take him back to the school for water polo practice later.  It's all about mom's taxi service these days.  He'll have to hitch a ride from someone because I'll be driving the other 2 to karate just as he's done.  It truly does take a village!

Day 261- Wednesday, 9/18/13
Time to pop some popcorn and grab a seat on the couch for the premier of Survivor.  Everyone was home so we could actually watch as a family--loved it!

Day 262- Thursday, 9/19/13
Since Tyler's hardly around anymore Justin has been able to ride shot-gun more and more.  He loves it, but it seems strange to me.  He looks so small in the front seat.  I keep forgetting he's 12.  We're heading home from tennis practice right now.

Day 263- Friday, 9/20/13
Rusty is the only one up when I get up in the mornings so he keeps me company as I get ready for work.  I forgot how much I missed having a morning companion once our older cat passed so it's been wonderful to have Rusty fill that void.  Sometimes he's quite the distraction though as he loves to play, play, play.

Day 264- Saturday, 9/21/13
Today it was pouring rain so it's a good thing we had planned to have Tyler's birthday party at an indoor racetrack.  He turns 15 on Monday!  All his closest friends helped him celebrate by racing with him and then staying for a sleepover.  It was great fun, and he loved every minute of it. 

Day 265- Sunday, 9/22/13
LOL!  The morning after ;0)  Here are some tired teenage boys that stayed up too late watching movies and chatting.  They look so peaceful, and now I will probably wake them banging around in the kitchen to get breakfast started.  No matter--I'm sure they'll be happy to eat.

That's it for now.  Only one week left in September and it's actually starting to feel a little like fall.  Hope to see you next week.



  1. What a FUN week!
    Happy birthday to Tyler...what a fun party for a bunch of teenage boys.

    I love the idea of capturing how Justin seems so small in the front seat.
    That's something that you'll look back on in 5 years from now b/c he'll have grown up so much!

  2. Sounds like another great week! That's so great that you all got to watch Survivor as a family! Happy Birthday to Tyler! His party looked like a lot of fun.

  3. Happy Birthday to your son!!! Great photos from a busy week. I have to say, Bella looks as happy as your son down there. ;)
