Week 43

Welcome back and happy Tuesday!  Here we are in the last week of October.  It's still pretty warm out, but the mornings are full of that crisp fall air and the evenings are nice and pleasant so a change is brewing.  We had a fun and full week last week.  Still a lot of water polo, and I'm enjoying every bit before it's over for good.

Take a look at last week's pictures:

Day 292- Monday, 10/19/15
Five little pumpkins and a couple gourds sit in our front entry just waiting for Halloween.  I'm glad it's on a Saturday this year so we actually have time to carve them up.

Day 293- Tuesday, 10/20/15
My favorite goofball with his favorite candy bar.  It's perfect for him and even more perfect that the goofball part is a bit out of focus.

Day 294- Wednesday, 10/20/15
It's water polo senior night a week early.  We have a large group of seniors this year and they have had a great 4 years.  I'm going to miss the sound of the whistle, the smell of chlorine and Coach Moe's yelling ;0)  He's collected quite a few yellow and red cards while these boys were in the water, but all for good reason.  It's been a fun run.

Day 295- Thursday, 10/22/15
Justin has been a trooper riding his bike to school everyday.  He really likes it and takes good care of his bike.  It's time to add air to the tires.  He also loves rain but is dreading not being able to ride when and if the rainy season starts.

Day 296- Friday, 10/23/15
Tyler and I are in Modesto for a 2 day polo tournament.  Day 1 went really well trying out some new plays. The coach is hoping to strengthen the team and change things up a bit before for the last game of the league season next week.  John stayed home with the younger boys and treated them to a dinner out full of chicken wings.

Day 297- Saturday, 10/24/15
Water polo tournament day 2.  We played 3 games today and had a super early start captured beautifully by one of the polo dad's.  Great picture I stole from you John Miles ;0)  I love the look of early morning calm in the pool before the boys got in there and tore it up.  Sadly we lost all 3 games, but they were good close games, and we still ended up with 6 place in the tournament which is not bad at all. This will most likely be my last water polo tournament :0(

Day 298- Sunday, 10/25/15
Time for a Sunday morning ride.  John went out with some of his biker friends and for nice ride through the foothills.  I bet the fall colors up there were great but what he really likes is the windy roads.

That's it!  I hope everyone has a safe and fun Halloween.  See you in November.


  1. That's too bad that the boys lost their last water polo tournament, but what great memories they've had together. That's crazy that Tyler is already a Senior!
    I'm excited to see the pictures next week of what your boys dressed up as for Halloween.

  2. Congrats on 4 years of water polo!! Hope you have a great Halloween!

  3. Bummer on the water polo losses! That's very cool that Tyler played all 4 years of high school. I know you'll miss watching him play! Love your front porch Halloween display. I hope you all enjoy the holiday!! Can't wait to see pics!
