Week 47

11/18 - 24

Ty and I did our best to entertain ourselves while Cody was at camp.  
We tried Linda's Pizzeria on Greenback on day for lunch thanks to a great Groupon deal.

 School day finished, a bit of Wii on one of the rainy days.

Friday night, Ty had his Intersquad practice meet to kick off the competition season. 

Weekend morning, cuddled up with a good book. 

Between the rain showers on Saturday, we went outside to take school year pictures.

11/21 Intersquad

Tyler competed for the first time as a level 5 at the team Intersquad meet.  
It was a rough going, but luckily they have 2 weeks until their first meet to work on things. 
There was a lot of learning going on for him and his coaches.  

On an up note, he looked super cute (I mean strong and handsome) in his new uniform.  

Here are his routines.  He really has improved a lot since last spring.  With some clean up and focus this next two weeks, we're hoping he can improve his scores for the Season Opener.

Week 46

11/11 - 17 
Fall crafting! 
A table runner for the kitchen table.   
 Owls dressed as turkeys, pilgrims and themselves. 
 Fall wreath for the door
They are hard to see in the picture, but it is has lots of leaves all over.  
Made by covering a wicker wreath with brown and orange/gold variegated garland.  

The start of the Christmas crafty, a stocking for Annabel.  

 The boys had their monthly enrichment classes in Rescue.  
One of the advisers took this shot of Ty during his archery class. 
 Recycled bag art

Thursday the boys had a bonus set of art classes in Roseville.  
They were happy to see their monthly art teacher for a scarecrow picture. 
 Decorating a holiday plate, Cody did a Christmas one and Ty did a Thanksgiving theme.  
Can't wait to pick these up on the 24th! 

Monday we dropped Cody off at Sly Park Environmental Education Center for a week long science camp.  It took about a 1 minute for him to quickly give some hugs and jump into the group heading off to play basketball as they waited for cabin assignments.  

The rest of us took advantage of the beautiful day and went exploring.  
 Bummed to drop brother for a week, but excited to play around for the day!
 At the second stop we found sheets of ice in the stream. 
Ty was having a blast picking them out of the water and breaking them on the rocks. 

Can't wait to see my boy and hear all about his week!

Week 45

11/4 - 10
November's Block finished.  
Another weekend of soccer, Commissioner's Cup Tournament. 

 After another discouraging weekend and Cody feeling very down about the game, we decided his season needed to be over.  Now to figure out something for the Winter!

Week 44

10/28 - 11/3

Another block of the month. 
 I cannot get this block to photograph with it's true colors, much more green than the blue showing up. 

The boys tested our last nerve this past week with sneaking things and lying about it.  As this has been an ongoing problem it was time to pull out the big guns and cancel Halloween.  
So this was my Friday night at gym, making November's lesson plans. 
 Ty ended up alone in the gym with a hotdog for a coach. 
 Cody's team had their end of season party on Sunday, kickball at an indoor softball arena.  
The boys had a great time!  

 They still have a tournament this weekend and possibly the next, plus one more regular season game that is still needing to be rescheduled.
