It’s been quite some time since last I sat down to write one of these, but it’s high time we started catching things up around here. One of the reasons for the delay is that this week involved working my way through several hundred photos of Owen on a basketball court. Eventually I managed the task, only to find myself awash in even more photos from all the other activities that went on this week.
We’ll begin where we left off last time, with the boys annoying our new cat.
They seriously love this cat.
It was also the week leading into Valentine’s Day, so we had some work to do.
We usually reserve most of our photo taking for the weekend, but this Tuesday there was an event that forced me to drag out all the equipment for a night on the town.
For those not in the know, TOT is a program where kids get a chance to learn some basic athletic skills in exchange for cold, hard cash. Twice a year they get a chance to show off their skills, and Owen would be doing so tonight at the arena for our local D-league basketball team. You may recall that Max had the same opportunity last year.
Edited a bit for brevity’s sake.
As the week moved on, we had even more events to attend.
The week was far from over, as we still had our regularly scheduled soccer game on Saturday.
Sunday is usually our wrap-up day when we all collapse in a heap and relax as much as possible. This time, we had other plans.
We’d been invited to our local science center on a fact-finding mission. Maggie Joe and Scout came along so that Aunt Michelle could figure out if this would be an appropriate venue for a birthday party. Turns out it was just what she was looking for.
After a while, we were informed that a demonstration would be starting soon. The boys rushed as quickly as they could to find an appropriate seat.
It was a very, very busy week. In fact, I’m not even done yet. I have one last video to share with you before I go.
More science than you can shake a leafblower at.
And that’s it! Seriously, no more. Aside from the link to the rest of the photos. Hopefully you can see now why it took so long to get this one done. The rest of the catch-up will be pulled together as soon as I recover from this one.
