Week 13

Here we are on another Tuesday--the last day in March and Justin's birthday :0)  He's happy it's happening while on Spring Break because no school and no karate tonight.  The day is all his.  We can actually do something fun.  I'm just glad March is almost over even though it won't truly feel like it until the end of the week because we still a few deadlines to meet and a lot of moving parts to be aligned.  At least there is an end in sight.  

Here are last week's pictures:

Day 82- Monday, 3/23/15
This crazy boy loves burnt toast.  He'd have it even more burnt if I'd let him, but we don't want the toaster catching fire.  I'm not sure what the deal is, but it's one of his latest obsessions.

Day 83- Tuesday, 3/24/15
We have been receiving samples from our 4-H project on Mondays so we spend all day setting them up for an overnight incubation and then I spend a couples hours on Tuesdays reading them.  We're looking for total coliforms and E. coli.  Let's just say yellow is not good.

Day 84- Wednesday, 3/25/15
Brandon and Bella have been enjoying the super nice weather by heading outside to play in the yard after homework.  Frisbee is a favorite game for both of them.

Day 85- Thursday, 3/26/15
Keeping it real.  I hate the dirty dishes that pile up.  The dishwasher takes care of a lot of them but usually the hardest to clean cannot go in there.  These are the last things I want to deal with at the end of my long days.

Day 86- Friday, 3/27/15
Here we are at the last race in a swim meet before Spring Break can officially start.  Look how beautiful it is out--a little windy but otherwise perfect spring weather.  Go, Tyler, go!  He's the anchorman in this relay race so he has to bring it home.

Day 87- Saturday, 3/28/15
We're having Justin's birthday sleepover party today.  He's super excited to have his friends over and managed to convince his brothers to find somewhere else to stay so he had the house to himself.  He also didn't want me to bake a cake because he wanted a ColdStone ice-cream cake.  Fair enough, but I still got my hands on it to do some customization ;0)   

Day 88- Sunday, 3/29/15
It's Spring Break now, but Tyler still has deadlines to meet.  He was at a friends house doing homework yesterday and is working on an essay due Wednesday today.  Thank goodness he's on top of it and doesn't complain.  I think after Wednesday he can relax a bit and enjoy himself more.

Wait!  One last one--

March's Family Photo

It's been so nice out lately (temps in the mid 80's) that we had to take a picture in our backyard with all the beautiful greenery.  It smelled so good out there too because John had steak and shrimp on the BBQ for dinner. 

That's it for now.  See you in April and thanks for stopping by.
