Week 34

Welcome back and happy Tuesday!  School is well under way and so far so good.  The kids are re-learning to balance school work with everything else they want to do.  All that free time of summer is gone!  Last week was pretty hectic but now that everyone knows the new "norm" I think things will run much smoother. 

Take a look at how it all went down:

Day 229- Monday, 8/17/15
I'm spending these last couple days of summer break with the kids running errands and squeezing in a bit of fun.  Today we took in an afternoon movie.  Ant-man was fun and they all loved it.

Day 230- Tuesday, 8/18/15
Time for senior pictures already.  You have to take them early so there is enough time to get them in the yearbook.  I'm just glad we got them done before school is starting tomorrow because it will be near impossible otherwise with Tyler's crazy schedule.

Day 231- Wednesday, 8/19/15
Welcome back to school!  Here we are with a senior in high school, a freshman in high school, and a 6th grader starting middle school.  It's been a stressful morning, but everyone has settled down a bit and they are ready to start their day.

Day 232- Thursday, 8/20/15
He loves her so much he's practically choking her with that hug, but she doesn't mind :0)  It's nice to have an attentive companion to come home to after a long day at school.

Day 233- Friday, 8/21/15
Tyler is grabbing a quick snack before polo practice and Bella is hoping he shares some of those crackers with her. She's been missing not having her boys home as much this week.

Day 234- Saturday, 8/22/15
Today was a busy day.  Tyler had 3 quick pre-season polo games this morning in Roseville.  It was fun to see how the high school team is shaping up this year.  Then later John and I celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary at the Firehouse restaurant in Old Sacramento.  We had a fun night and a great meal.  Their food is so good.

Day 235- Sunday, 8/23/15
This is not how I wanted to spend my Sunday morning.  Can you believe Brandon had a poster project to do this first weekend of school?  I was not prepared in the supply department and had to run around this morning to get what he needed plus print the required 7! pictures.  At least he was in a good mood about it and was motivated to get it done before 1pm when he had a friend coming over to play.  The nice thing is that he loves the poster because it's all about him and his favorite things and he had fun deciding what pictures and images to choose.

That's it.  Looking forward to a good week and hope you all have one too.


  1. Love the tux jacket and shorts, what a look! Glad things are settling back into routine!

  2. Wow, a poster project in the first week of school?! Crazy! And how exciting that Tyler is already taking senior pictures. I can't believe you have 2 high schoolers now. I hope all your boys have a great year!

  3. We did senior pictures this last week too. Crazy to have a senior, huh? Ugh! I am going to try and enjoy this last year more. Oh my. and try not to cry! Happy Anniversary! What a fun place and food looks amazing! Hope everyone is getting their school schedules figured out. We just started today. . . here we go! Have a great week!

  4. I know I'm way behind on reading blog posts, but I wanted to say HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! That's great that y'all got to go out and have a fancy date to celebrate. I can't believe Tyler is already a Senior!
