Week 3

Welcome back and happy Tuesday!  It's an exciting week with the 2 high school boys starting their new classes for the second semester and Justin starting tennis conditioning.  It's a lot of change but good change that we're happy for.  They ended the first semester on a high note and are looking forward to what the next brings.  Half way there! 

Here is how last week went:

Day 11- Monday, 1/11/16
Misery loves company, and Brandon loves Bella's company during homework.  He knows if he has a treat box she'll stay by his side, and then when he's done he rewards her.  It's a win-win for both.

Day 12- Tuesday, 1/12/16
After a nice long break through December we're back at karate on Tuesdays.  Someone is in a fowl mood tonight and didn't want his picture taken so I snapped a shot of me waiting by his shoes instead. 

Day 13- Wednesday, 1/13/16
It's been another rainy week and it was too wet for Justin to ride his bike to school this morning, so I had pick up duty this afternoon.  As you can see the clouds eventually parted and the sun decided to come out making for a nice end to the day.

Day 14- Thursday, 1/14/16
. . .but it's back!  Today was the opposite.  We had a nice start but it ended with a lot of rain and our pool is filling up super fast.  At least it hasn't turned green yet.

Day 15- Friday, 1/15/16
We're at Starbucks celebrating the end of finals and the end of the first semester.  Eveyone is happy how it went so now they can enjoy a nice long 3-day weekend and start with new classes on Tuesday.

Day 16- Saturday, 1/16/16
Time for a date.  John and I headed to Davis for dinner and a movie.  Both were really good.  The Revenant is one you really should see on the big screen.  It's an amazing story and the cinematography is incredible.  Best picture and actor material for sure.

Day 17- Sunday, 1/17/16
Yesterday was date night and today is family fun day so we saw the Harlem Globetrotters which was super fun.  How crazy is it that they have been around for 90 years?!  I still remember watching the cartoon they had on Saturday mornings back in the day with Curly. Tyler and Brandon really got a kick out of it and Justin said it was just ok, but that is so him.

All done for now.  Thanks for stopping by and check back next week for more fun.


  1. I love that you all still make time for regular date nights and family days. I've always wanted to see the Harlem Globetrotters. I'll have to take my kiddos in the next few years. My son already goes nuts when he sees a basketball, so I'm sure he'd enjoy it. I hope the start of the second semester goes well for everyone!

  2. Aren't the Globetrotters fun!
    Glad you're getting rain!

  3. That's so funny that Brandon bribes Bella to stay by him while he does homework w/ the box of doggy treats sitting on the table. LOVE IT!

    That's awesome that you still got a picture of what was going on Tuesday night even though "someone was in a fowl mood." LOL! :)

  4. I remember seeing the Globetrotters when I was a kid. How fun! Your date night looks great. WE will have to check out that movie. Love the picture of the rain on your pool. Glad you had a great end to the semester! It is crazy to be half way done! Hope everyone likes the new semester classes and all goes well!
