Monday Discs

We had a nice afternoon of flying discs, cutting the cats claws, and being goofy.  Mom is glad Oliver is home.  He'll be off with his dad again tomorrow for a dentist appointment.  Mom will see him on Wednesday.  

Sweet Noah picked up Oliver from the Club
today.  Mom appreciates their help.  2.5
more weeks of school!!

We went and had fun at Kit Carson Park!

We found a hawk feather for the cats.  


Oliver thought it was funny that mom put
the feather in her back pocket.

This was funny.....

Wish he could sweep like this at home.

Oliver came home again.  We went fishing and we laughed a lot at our cats.  


Mom's spot at Lake Dixson.


His catch. Seven Bluegill.

Mom is finally home....Oliver came home for a bit.

Mom has to work this morning....again.
Her GOTR team's LFL finally found a home
in front of the school.

Oliver and mom had to drop off a GOTR
poster for the fair documenting their community
impact project.


Of course, Oliver found a pond.  

At the fairgrounds.  

We look forward to the Sweet San Diego County Fair
this year!!!

Mother's Day

It's Mother's Day.  A day that is sort of difficult for single moms.  Mom got an email at midnight from Oliver's teacher with the sweetest poem she has seen.  It's going in mom's journal from Oliver.  Mother's day wasn't so bad after all.

We picked out flowers from Grammie....

Drank fancy Starbucks drinks......

at Lake Dixson....

and mom sat on the shore while Oliver fished.

It was the perfect day.

Oliver had a good afternoon with had to host her Girls on the Run team's last practice/party and another board meeting.  They went to JJ and Souplantation.  Oliver said he wants mom to go to more board meetings.  

When mom walked through the door, Oliver showed her a challenge his teacher gave him.  It was a macbook box.  His teacher wants Oliver to make something with it.  Anything.  Be creative.  But he wanted to see effort.  Oliver has not been putting a lot of effort into his work at school.  Oliver is a smart kid and has the skills, he just doesn't seem motivated and inspired this year.  This box was motivating to him.  We brainstormed some ideas and he came up with an idea.  A comment and suggestion will keep you informed on what happens with it!

Oliver is off with his dad for most of the weekend.  She'll see him on Mother's Day, before she goes away for the whole week to 5th grade camp!!!

Motorcycle Monday

Oliver got picked up from school today and went on an adventure.  Him and his dad went to Dana Point and bought a used mini dirt back.  Oliver is pretty excited!  

Scout and mom were excited to see
each other.  

Theodore enjoyed licking this motorcyle
owner's head.  Don't worry he'll be wearing
a helmet every single time he rides.

Sunny Sunday

Mom had her Girls on the Run race this morning.  She invited Oliver to come and hang out with a couple boys from her school...he declined.  He would have had fun, maybe next year.  Mom brought a sidekick home with changed the course of our day and made the rest of the day easy with Oliver- even though she was only with us for about an hour.  

Waiting for his food. 

Mom's sidekick.  She's on mom's team and
in her class.

When we finally got home, we went fishing at
Lake Dixson.

He caught a bluegill and snacked on it before dinner.

It was a nice Sunday.
