What we've been up to this week......

Just a few photo snippets of our week!!!

My book club met on Tuesday and we discussed the book "I Capture the Castle" which was written in 1946!!!  Absolutely wonderful book (although I thought the first 3 chapters were SLOW going).  I ended up LOVING it!!  One of my friends read the book on the train from London to Scotland this month...couldn't have asked for a more perfect setting!!!

The book my book club is reading this of my absolute FAVORITES (I read it a few months ago).  If you haven't read it yet, be sure to get a copy!!!

Ryley is now competing in track (he's doing baseball as well, but the games haven't started yet!!).  Photo was taken after he ran the 1500 meter race (4 laps around the track).  He finds out his standings today...goal is to beat his personal best.  He came in middle of the pack, which was GREAT!  He also competed in the "turbo javelin" and the 800 meter.  Since he was in Cross Country in the fall, the instructors suggested he do the long distance races.  He was EXHAUSTED when it was over!!!  Then had to head straight to the ball fields for a baseball scrimmage game...

I am taking a cooking class on Wednesdays that is combined with a seminar on Character!!  We learned how to make Gumbo (and sampled it as well) this week!!!  SO good!!!

Thursday night was "Bunco" night!!!  We play with a great group of ladies -- 16 of us total!!!  Above is a photo of those of us that won that night!!!

Sarah went to a birthday party on Saturday and "Bubbles" the clown did some face painting.  According to Sarah she is a "princess kitty"
Sunday we spent most of the afternoon shopping for clothes for the kids.  The girls had a "who can find the ugliest shoe contest".  

Charger unfortunately didn't have such a fun weekend.  He somehow managed to dislodge one of his adult teeth, and it ended up embedded in his gums with the roots exposed.  Which meant a trip to the vet.  The good news is he is now also neutered and micro chipped and has some wonderful pain pills that make him extremely mellow.  Photo above is with Tori and Koda trying to make him feel better.  Poor Koda missed him horribly while he was gone for the day and spent his time whimpering by Chargers crate and the front door awaiting his return.
