Week 44

Welcome back and happy Tuesday!  Here we are into November.  There is so much going on this month.  I'm having a hard time keeping it all straight and pulling it together. Hopefully it will all work itself out.  At least we've had a couple of good rains and there has even been some snow in the mountains.  We're hoping for a good ski year.  The temps have dropped so it is really starting to feel like fall.  The time change helps with that too although I'm not liking how it gets so dark so early.  I can't even get the dog's walk in before it turns pitch black out.

At any rate, here are last week's pictures:

Day 300- Monday, 10/27/14
I'm starting off my work week feeding cultures from the incubator.  It was a long weekend for them since I was out Friday for water polo so they are hungry.  This is how I start most my work days--feeding these little buggers.

Day 301- Tuesday, 10/28/14
Tyler had a minimum day at school so we made the most of it and headed to the DMV after.  He passed his driving test!  My baby has his license.  Be still my heart.  It's so hard to relax knowing he's out there on his own.  I can't be at ease until he's safe at home.

Day 302- Wednesday, 10/29/14
It was a big night here.  Tyler had his last high school water polo game at McClatchy, and the team went undefeated in their league for the season.  Sections here we come!  Also the San Francisco Giants won the World Series!!  We got home just in time to see the last couple plays that ended the game.  John's a happy boy :0)

Day 303- Thursday, 10/30/14
I'm not sure how we found the time today, but somehow we managed to squeeze in carving pumpkins.  Only 3 of the 5 got carved, but it's better than nothing, and the boys had fun.  That's all that really matters.  They did an amazing job too.

Day 304- Friday, 10/31/14
Happy Halloween!  It poured rain on and off all day but cleared just in time for some treating.  My 3 boys all went in 3 different directions wanting to spend the evening with friends so it was impossible for me to get a picture of all of them together.  They had a wonderful time though, and I'm glad they all have such good friends.

Day 305- Saturday, 11/1/14
November--really?!  I'm not ready for November but here it starts.  I'll have to brace myself.  At least I've got my boys back together again.  Love these guys!

Day 306- Sunday, 11/2/14
I didn't get around to checking the mail Friday or yesterday, but when I checked it today look what I found!  They said it would take up to 3 weeks to get his physical license but that was less than a week.  It's even more official now, and I'm glad he has it before he flies off to DC in a couple weeks.  This boy is growing up too fast.  PS- the license stays vertical until he turns 21.  I had no idea they were doing that now but makes perfect sense.

That's all for now.  Be sure to come back and see how crazy busy but amazing this next month will be.

  1. First driver's license is hard! I have 2 that can drive here. I still worry! We were sad the Royals lost :) Love the pumpkins and the Halloween costumes! Have a great week!

  2. Yay for rain and a new driver! In NJ it was vertical until 21 too - which I thought was cool. Happy November!

  3. I love the perspective of the work photo. Very cool! Congrats to Tyler on getting his license! I'm glad I still have quite a few years before I have to worry about that with my kiddos LOL. Your boys all look so cute in their Halloween costumes. Love that you got them all together in the November photo!
