Week 14

It's Tuesday yet again although it doesn't feel like it because we are on spring break.  WooHoo!  It's so nice to have a break from school and work.  I did come into work this morning for a bit but I'm off most the rest of the week to spend time with the family.  We have a quick overnight escape planned but otherwise we'll be getting things done at home that just can't be done during busier weeks.  Both the yard and the house need some spring cleaning.  Now, if only the weather would cooperate.

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

Day 92- Sunday 4/2/17
After 3 hours of working together printing and taping and organizing their board is done! Brandon and Freddy did a good job and are ready for the science fair set for Thursday.  They are happy to be done early because working after school mid-week on this would be nearly impossible with their different schedules.

Day 93- Monday, 4/3/17
John is a happy boy!  His favorite college team, North Carolina, wins the NCAA basketball tournament.  They were close last year but lost at the very end so this year makes for sweet redemption.  All I can say is thank goodness March Madness is finally over!

Day 94- Tuesday, 4/4/17
It doesn't take long for Justin to comfortably move back into Tyler's room once he's back at school.  Tyler left Sunday and ever since Justin has been using his room as a secluded study space.  It actually works out well because Justin shares a room with Brandon but needs to stay up later to do homework so he does that in Tyler's room and then heads to his own room when he's ready to sleep. 

Day 95- Wednesday, 4/5/17
Brandon had a minimum day so we took advantage of the extra time and headed to Petco picking out a couple gifts for Bella's upcoming birthday.  He loves shopping for the pets.

Day 96- Thursday, 4/6/17
Rain, rain, rain again!  Blah--I'm ready for it to end.  It rained a lot yesterday and today and is supposed to rain again tomorrow.  I'm ready for a dry warm spring but more rain is expected late next week too so maybe we'll have a dry spring in May. *sigh*

Day 97- Friday, 4/7/17
Today is John's actual birthday and Bella's too.  It's a big one for him and he wears it well.  We're all a little sick of cake here so a simple cupcake worked perfectly. Bella is now 8 and considered an older dog but she's young at heart and certainly doesn't act older ;0)

Day 98- Saturday, 4/8/17
There's my college boy back at school.  The Pultiz family is on spring break in the LA area and visited Tyler for a personal tour to check out the campus for Nick, a fellow water polo and swim friend.  Laura, his mom, kindly asked me if I had anything I wanted her to deliver to Tyler from home so I sent a care package of snacks and Easter treats.  They had a fun time with Tyler and he was happy with his package plus they sent me a picture--yay!  Back here at home we went out to dinner to celebrate John's birthday.  He's happy Lobster Fest is always around his birthday so he got his lobster fix.

That's it for now.  See you next Tuesday.


  1. Happy birthday John! Enjoy your break - I'm off this week too, so nice!

  2. Happy birthday to John! Glad you enjoyed Tyler home and that he is back and ready to finish up. Hope you enjoyed your spring break!! I feel like we are at the end of a crazy roller coaster right now with end of school looming--5 weeks!
