Week 19

Welcome back and happy Tuesday!  Last week was much slower than the week before and a nice change of pace.  This week is not looking too bad either and then it starts to get real crazy again just before graduation.  I'm just going to enjoy the slower pace for now and worry about the busy as it comes.  I'm also looking forward to a warmer and dryer week.  It is May after all!

Here's what happened last week which was a fun one:

Day 123- Monday, 5/2/16
Justin is super excited one of his favorite teachers is starting an archery club.  They used to offer archery as part of PE but no longer so having an after school club is just as nice or even better and it starts next week right after tennis season ends.  It was meant to be ;0)

Day 124- Tuesday, 5/3/16
Karate has started up again after a nice month-long break in April.  We're hoping it will be over for good before the end of summer once Brandon tests for his Black Belt.  He's so close and just needs a bit of motivation to kick it in gear.

Day 125- Wednesday, 5/4/16
May the 4th be with you!  I pulled this mask out of Tyler's room for today mostly to see how this kid would react.  He hated it as a preschooler and was so afraid of it that we had to hide it in a closet for years.  I was happy to see he picked it right up, gave it a good inquisitive look over and then said, "Hey mom, you should take my picture with this today."  Now he wants it to live in his room.  My baby is all grown up and no long afraid of the Vader in his house.

Day 126- Thursday, 5/5/16
Happy Cinco de Mayo, and I'm home for the afternoon so I can actually cook.  We decided on nachos with fresh guacamole. Yum!

Day 127- Friday, 5/6/16
This afternoon I weeded the front yard and found this pretty flower in full bloom on a weed-yes it's a weed!  I left it alone at first because it was so pretty but then an hour later it closed up so I decided to pull it.  We don't need anymore weeds even the pretty ones.

Day 128- Saturday, 5/7/16
Girls trip with these lovely ladies to Napa for some wine tasting and a little picnic.  Sadly the weather did not cooperate and it rained pretty much all day, but we still found a good dry spot for our picnic and had a lot of fun. 

Day 129- Sunday, 5/8/16
Happy Mother's Day!  I was spoiled by John and the boys with gifts and a nice breakfast.  Then we all went to see The Jungle Book together--my pick.  If it were up to the boys it would have been the Captain America: Civil War movie--maybe next time.  The weather also cleared up and it turned out to be a really nice day which will hopefully lead into a really nice week.  I hope everyone else had a wonderful Mother's Day as well.  You all deserve it.

That's it.  Be sure to check back next week.
