Week 21

Welcome back and happy Tuesday.  It was so nice to have a long, quiet weekend at home.  It was really hot, but we beat the heat by making good use of our pool.  I could use a few more weekends like this, but we are pretty booked solid through July now so I'm glad we made the best of it when we could.  Only 8 days left of school and I'm hoping it will be over before we know it.

Until then here are last week's pictures:

Day 139- Monday, 5/19/14
It's Justin's turn to work on a school project.  He has a history booklet to complete before next week and has been working hard.  Look at that binder.  Do you think it will last a couple more weeks?  He says, "Yes! Of course it will," and I say, "I hope so!"

Day 140- Tuesday, 5/20/14
We have our first tomatoes growing out back.  The recent heat has really helped them along.  I just hope I can keep those darn horn worms away.  They're very cool looking creatures but cause a great deal of damage to the plants and fruit.

Day 141- Wednesday, 5/21/14
Tonight was a busy one.  We went to swim practice first, picked up some Subway for dinner, ran to the school for open house where the 4th graders got to show off their missions, and then I had a Booster's meeting right after.  It was fun to see all the wonderful mission creations and interesting to note what sort of building materials the kids used--everything from Legos to Rice Krispies treats!

Day 142- Thursday, 5/22/14
This cat cracks me up.  He's just chilling on the chair hanging over the side like he has not a care in the world.  Must be nice!

Day 143- Friday, 5/23/14
We got some new bedding for our room.  Our old set had seen better days so it was time.  It's pretty much the same colors but has a little different pattern, and this one doesn't need to be dry cleaned like the last one did.

Day 144- Saturday, 5/24/14
This morning we got our house work and yard work done so we could relax and enjoy yourselves the rest of the long weekend.  Our pool is now open for the season, and the boys had a blast just playing.  No sprints, no laps, no passes, and no shots necessary--just plain fun!

Day 145- Sunday, 5/25/14
It was a warm holiday weekend which meant more fun in the pool and then grilling with friends.  John cooked up a feast. The steaks and coconut shrimp were a big hit.

That's all folks.  I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend.  Thanks to all those who gave their lives to protect and defend our country.
