Week 6

Welcome back and happy Tuesday!  We are wet, wet, wet here in California and it's a welcome sight. It's not convenient or fun but much needed so we'll take it and pray for more.  I think we're only about 20% of normal so we still have a lot of catching up to do before we're out of drought danger. Let's just hope it doesn't really come to that.  In the meantime we'll keep plugging along.  My three boys keep us as busy as ever even in the rain!

Here's a look at last week:

Day 34- Monday, 2/3/14
The younger two have minimum days all week for conferences and today we had no extra curricular activities (no where to go!) so I decided to make a real dinner and cook enchiladas.  They were so good and spicy warm on this cold and yucky day.

Day 35- Tuesday, 2/4/14
These two are enjoying their short school days and look so cute in their high-tech headphones.  They love these things.

Day 36- Wednesday, 2/5/14
Tonight is the high school open house and a pizza fundraiser for the water polo team so Justin helped me pick up a couple pies for dinner before I headed out to meet Tyler's teachers for this next semester.

Day 37- Thursday, 2/6/14
It's time to pick classes for next year.  See that 11 on his sheet?  He'll be in 11th grade--a Junior!  How did that happen so fast?  He's selecting some good courses and is excited to see what next year brings.  

Day 38- Friday, 2/7/14
Yep!  It's just a little wet around here ;0)  Thanks to the "pineapple express" we have system after system lined up in the pacific just waiting to dump rain on us.  Finally some good, solid relief from the dry winter that's been taunting us.

Day 39- Saturday, 2/8/14
Brandon is super excited to be going on a sleepover tonight for his friend's birthday.  Usually his older brothers are the ones going to sleepovers and it's him stuck at home, but not this weekend.  He could hardly wait and kept asking me all day if it was time yet.

Day 40- Sunday, 2/9/14
It was the perfect day to stay indoors by the fire and watch the Olympics.  I like that the rain helps slow everyone down so we can relax at home more.  I pretty much did laundry and watched this all day long and not much of anything else which was nice.

There goes another week--poof!  Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again next week.

  1. I'm so glad you guys are finally getting some rain! I keep seeing on the news how much California needs it. That's nice that you get to spend some extra time at home on the rainy days. Those enchiladas sound delicious!

    Those enchiladas look really yummy.
    Yay for Brandon getting to go to a sleepover.

    I hope y'all have a LOVELY Valentine's Day on Friday! :)

  3. So glad you are getting some rain and hope you get more! Your enchiladas look yum! We did enrollment too this week, and my oldest is also going to be a junior. Time just flies! It is crazy! Enjoy your week! Happy Valentine's Day!
