Week 6

Hello and welcome back!  It's Tuesday again.  Last week was super long and busy as you will see.  I'm hoping for a slower week this week but with the kids in school and sports that never seems to happen. What happened to winter?  It is only February after all.  It's been unusually warm and most of the week this week will be in the mid 70's!  I do hope we get more rain and snow before things really move towards spring.  It's been a great winter so far and it's way too early to end.

At any rate, here's a look at last week's pictures:

Day 32- Monday, 2/1/16
And just like that February starts.  Brandon has minimum days all week and the high-school kids don't so we'll get some good one-on-one time together each afternoon.

Day 33- Tuesday, 2/2/16
It's turning out to be a warm week.  The mornings are still cold and a little damp but by afternoon the sun shines bright and heats things up.  Rusty is taking advantage of the warmer weather by bathing in the sun rays.

Day 34- Wednesday, 2/3/16
Brandon had his school conference today and is doing great in the 6th grade so while we ran errands at Target afterwards, he was rewarded with an ICEE.  It was especially good and refreshing on this warm spring day.  Shortly after, I dropped him at home with Tyler and headed out for snack-bar duty which was fun but made for a really long day.

Day 35- Thursday, 2/4/16
This afternoon I made 3 batches of brownies to take to a Booster's meeting and Tyler came home just in time to help me clean up.  Lucky boy.  Look at Bella--she wants some so bad but no chocolate for her.  Poor thing!

Day 36- Friday, 2/5/16
Justin is my little botanist.  He's enjoying his new Farm-to-Fork class where he gets to spend time in the school garden at least 3 times a week.  He sent me a picture of this "Christmas tree" cauliflower earlier in the week, and then at home today was fascinated by one of our store bought onions that had been sitting awhile and began to sprout. LOL! We should probably do something about that.

Day 37- Saturday, 2/6/16
Pop-tarts!  They are Brandon's go-to snack and he's become really good at toasting them perfectly so they don't burn.  He's also into wearing t-shirts with wolves on them.  He has at least 3 or 4 in his closet and you can bet on weekends he'll be wearing one of them enjoying his freedom from the school uniform.

Day 38- Sunday, 2/7/16
It's Super Bowl 50 held in the Bay Area this year which was kind of exciting. Not that we could go, but we knew people that went.  Instead we watched the game at the Cepeda house and had a good time there with good food and drinks.

That's all folks.  Thanks for stopping by and see you next week.


  1. I love it that Justin gets to go to a Farm-to-Fork class!
    What a GREAT hands-on type education. I've never seen a Christmas tree cauliflower before. That looks really cool.

    Brownies are my go to treat to make b/c they're cheap, they cook really fast, and they go a long ways. Have a great and not too warm week. :)

  2. What a busy and tasty looking week!
    My boys have to wear polo shirts at school and all say they miss their t-shirts!

  3. Your hair looks great in these photos!
    That's so nice that you got to spend some quality time with Brandon last week. I'm sure he was loving the special attention!
    Very cool that Justin has a farm-to-fork class! I wish I'd been able to take a class like that in school.

  4. My youngest loves pop tarts as a snack too! Love the cat in the sun shot. That Christmas Tree cauliflower is cool and that sounds like an awesome class he gets to take. Hope you have a fun football party and this next week is slower for you!
