Welcome back and happy Tuesday! We're happily basking in sunshine here for a much needed wet weather break. Can you believe March starts tomorrow? There are many signs that spring has sprung like budding trees, flowering plants, and bugs galore. It's been a long winter and I'm sure we'll have even more rain over the next couple months but at least these signs show that there is an end in sight. I think we're all for that.
Here's a look at last week's pictures:
We found out that the kids could get donuts for good grades from Krispy Kreme so this morning we headed in to show report cards and walked out with a nice sized box of donuts. Totally a sweet treat. Turns out the program is only for kids up to 6th grade but we didn't know that going in and kindly the store never said a thing. Guess this will be our first and only time much to the boys' dismay ;0)
Day 51- Monday, 2/20/17
Today is the official President's Day holiday and even John got the day off. It was a good day to be home since there was a huge nasty storm and chance of floods in nearby areas. I was so grateful I didn't have have to drive to work in this weather. We just stayed in to keep dry and John worked most the day on making us a warm French stew dinner--beef bourguignon!
Day 52- Tuesday, 2/21/17
Justin sits down and immediately attracts the pets. They both just want to be close to him and hang out. He's definitely one of Rusty's favorite people.
Day 53- Wednesday, 2/22/17
Tonight was my first time playing Bunco and it was a lot of fun. It was a Booster's fundraiser event--the best one by far since we made some good money with little effort and had a good time doing it.
Day 54- Thursday, 2/23/17
So many busy days at work lately with a lot of new research projects getting ready to start. Today I'm checking the growth of organisms on the blood-agar plates for QC work.
Day 55- Friday, 2/24/17
Our tree out front is in bloom and some light wind has caused it to sprinkle pretty pink blossoms across the lawn. It's the little things that make you smile :0)
John's out of town with the guys in Tahoe so it's just me and the younger boys today. Justin and I took to an empty parking lot and practiced some driving. He's super nervous about the whole thing, but is doing better than I expected. Later Brandon had a great basketball game and even put some points on the board so we celebrated by having dinner at BJ's and ending the meal with a Pizookie Trio. Yum! The UCLA basketball game was up on the screen so we texted Tyler to let him know we were watching and had a good exchange with him. It almost felt like he was there too. I need that boy to send me a picture--miss his face. One more month and he'll be home for spring break.
That's it! Hope to see you all next week in March!
