Week 18

Welcome back!  Well I survived last week and I'm hoping this week is a bit slower. Can you believe it's May already?!  This month is going to fly by and before you know it I'll have a kid graduating from high school.  Wow!  It still seems so unreal.

Here's a look at last week's craziness:

Day 116- Monday, 4/25/16
Amongst all the kid stuff there is still work.  We're gearing up for new projects during the summer and working hard to keep the lab running.  I actually have 2 full time jobs--you can find me in the lab most mornings and out supporting kid activities most afternoons.  This afternoon it was tennis for Justin on a beautiful sunny day.

Day 117- Tuesday, 4/26/16
Tonight is Senior Night for the high school swim team and Tyler swam his very last backstroke event.  Swim season went fast and now that it's pretty much over he'll be focusing on getting set for life guarding.  He needs that job to help pay for college.

Day 118- Wednesday, 4/27/16
What a crazy weather day.  We had a major thunderstorm with a lot of lightening this afternoon.  Justin said he didn't know whether to watch the lightening strikes or the tennis ball while playing.  I'm thinking he should have come home early.  It was just practice.  There was no swim of course. The pets were a bit unsure and we even had a random dog run into our garage because it was trying to escape the happenings in the sky.  Good times!

Day 119- Thursday, 4/28/16
From one event to another.  What a week for Tyler.  Tonight he was honored with some of his fellow classmates and friends at a dinner for the top 10 seniors out of their class of almost 500. Ms. Cisneros in the yellow dress is the teacher he picked to invite and she spoke on his behave.  It was a very nice evening and we are so proud of what Tyler has accomplished and can't wait to see what his future has in store for him.

Day 120- Friday, 4/29/16
Today is high school swim champs in Woodland.  This is the end--the last day my oldest son will competitively swim.  He swam in the 50 and 100 free and crushed that 50.  The team did great and took home the league championship and just like that I am no longer a swim mom.

Day 121- Saturday, 4/30/16
Yay for slow and lazy Saturdays after a crazy and full week.  Brandon has taken to my bed to do a little reading while the cat naps on his bed.  Me, I'm trying to catch up on everything that was neglected during the week and am just grateful I have some free time to do that. 

Day 122- Sunday, 5/1/16
First off happy May!  My yard is currently between blooms so this is the only flower I could find to pose with for my monthly marker and boy is it bright and warm out!  Secondly, it's National College Decision Day and Tyler has decided to commit to UCLA. He excited and a little nervous and a bit overwhelmed, but will do great.  It really is the best overall fit for him.

Wait!  Time for . . .

April's Family Photo

Taken just before eating dinner on the last day in April.  Had to squeeze it before May showed up.  I would have preferred a shot outside but it was super windy and I hate the wind.

OK!  That is it for now.  Check back next week to see how we do crazy all over again ;0)


  1. What a big week for Tyler!! Congratulations all around!!
