Week 34

Welcome back and happy Tuesday!  We're trying to get back into a school schedule here.  It's coming along slowly but surely.  I can tell my quiet afternoons will be gone for awhile.  There are so many different schedules and events swirling around in my head it might just explode! I am looking forward to some water polo this afternoon though, and was pleasantly surprised when my Booster's snack bar shift got cancelled yesterday so it's all good.

Here are last week's pictures:

Day 230- Monday, 8/18/14
We're still squeezing in appointments before the start of school. Justin had his eyes checked and his one eye that crosses has greatly improved so no need for surgery in the future. He has the same prescription to correct his slight far-sightedness so he's set.  We'll just get him a new pair of frames for the new school year.  They should be available the middle of next week, and he can't wait because he's excited about the ones he chose.

Day 231- Tuesday, 8/19/14
Here we are on the very last day of summer so I took the boys out for some frozen yogurt.  Oh the choices!  It can be so hard to decided sometimes, and Brandon ended up with quite an interesting mix to top his treat off ;0)

Day 232- Wednesday, 8/20/14
It's the first day of school!  The backpacks are bigger and weigh more than the kids these days.  My younger two are still at the same school for one more year, and Tyler is on his own at the high school again until Justin joins him next year.

Day 233- Thursday, 8/21/14
Now that the kids are back in school I can spend more time at work and continue to plug through my 5000+ horse samples.  We're just over the half way mark.  I have all those slides in the trays to read today and the the samples in the tubes behind the trays to set up.  It's actually turning out to be a great epidemiology study so I'm excited to see the end results and get them out to the horse world.

Day 234- Friday, 8/22/14
Tyler helped me pick up dinner at Whitey's tonight.  We had burgers and shakes to celebrate the end of our first week at school, and then later I was surprised to have these beautiful roses delivered to me from John who is in New York for work.  Today is our 22nd wedding anniversary.  Thankfully he'll be home tomorrow so we can celebrate together then.

Day 235- Saturday, 8/23/14
He's back! I think he got in just after 1 am this morning, and after a long day of water polo we were able to escape and have a wonderful dinner at Morton's.  They printed us our own special menu and took this super cute picture.  John was happy they were having a full lobster special, and I very much enjoyed my steak and chocolate mousse dessert.  It was a great place to celebrate.

Day 236- Sunday, 8/24/14
Today got off to a rocky start with a 6.1 earth quake near Napa that we very much felt here in the Sacramento area.  It was an interesting way to start the day but otherwise ended up being a beautiful Sunday.  It was a bike riding day--my version of riding and then John's version of riding.  The boys rode with me around the neighborhood and John rode out to Bogle to pick up our wine club release.  It was a great day for a ride no matter how you chose to do it ;0)

That wraps up the first week of school.  Now let's see how we all fair after a full week.  Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you next week.
