Week 10

Happy Tuesday!  The morning starts this week have been harsh with the time change, but it will get easier and it is nice to have the extra light at the end of the day.  We're ramping up swim season so you'll see lots of pool pictures because that is where we spend most our free time.  There's still a lot of rain too which is good and it hasn't really slowed spring down much.  March is in full bloom.     

Here's a look at last week's pictures:

Day 62- Monday, 3/3/14
It's the first day of swim clinics and it poured rain on my little swimmers.  Nothing a nice cup of warm cocoa can't fix.

Day 63- Tuesday, 3/4/14
Brandon is moving up in the karate ranks.  He was just promoted from a green belt to a brown belt.  A couple more years of hard work and he'll have his black belt.

Day 64- Wednesday, 3/5/14
Tyler had his first swim meet of the season which was an away meet so he missed his academic award's ceremony.  Luckily he was still able to pick up his certificate just after stepping off the bus on his return.  Then he came home to pizza and gelato from a water polo fundraising night.  Today was one of the busiest days ever.  At one point in time I was supposed to be in 6 different places.  Yeah--that didn't happen!

Day 65- Thursday, 3/6/14
Brandon just got out of the pool for his swim clinic and now waits for Justin to finish.  I love his wet little footprints that trail from the pool to me.

Day 66- Friday, 3/7/14
Justin is thrilled it's Friday and is happy school is over because now he's off to a sleepover.  I haven't seen him this excited in awhile, and he has another one at a different friend's house tomorrow.   Popular kid!

Day 67- Saturday, 3/8/14
We're ahead of schedule which is never a bad thing.  We banged out Justin's experimental trials today using that catapult he and John built.   He learned a lot about how what you plan to do in science doesn't always work and often modifications need to be made.  Later John and I escaped for a date night at Cheesecake Factory.  It was fun and yummy but REALLY crowded.  Even so, we should do this more often.

Day 68- Sunday, 3/9/14
John made the family chicken wings for dinner.  It's one of our favorite Sunday night meals.  He made 3 batches each with a different flavor--BBQ, honey lime, and buffalo.  That's a lot of wings, but they don't last long in our house with 3 growing boys.  Just for fun: my favorite are the honey lime, Justin's favorite are the buffalo, Tyler and Brandon's favorite are the BBQ, and John pretty much likes them all ;0)

That's it for this week.  See you next week probably with more swim pictures although I'll try to switch it up a bit.

  1. Love your wet footprints picture by the pool! What a busy swimming week! My kids would love to be able to swim now, but still running the heater here, our pool won't open for over 2 months. Those ribs look yummy! Glad you got a date night. Those are way important! Have a great week with more swimming!
