I think Bella wanted to be on the top of this human tower!
Shelby and Dylan were having a blast that morning. We took Dylan to hockey practice that evening and he went on home with his mom.

Shelby loves getting a pedicure and I was ready for one too so we relaxed and enjoyed our time together being pampered.
By 4:00 we were at Jackson's high school to watch his team play the rival school that's located the closest to them. Jackson is #33!
Shawn, Sandee, and Dylan arriving.
There he is...#33!
They were victorious...33 to 20!
Jackson and Sandee after the game.

Shelby and I had shopped and run errands so on Thursday we took the morning off to relax on my newly cushioned chaise lounges and read our Kindles.
Yes Sandee B, like you, I do love my new Paperwhite!
We had some scraps of the solar cover so are floating large pieces of it to warm the pool which works pretty well and is much easier to handle than the fitted, whole pool cover. Shelby is moving pieces to the most effective part of the pool.

Late Friday morning, Shelby and I picked the boys up at home and we all went to the Superstition Springs Mall. Here is Shelby in her favorite clothing store. She's in line to pay for that darling lime green jacket.
Then the boys had their turn at shopping in a team logo clothing store. Before we went to Justice, they had both bought new socks and had put them on immediately...aren't they cool? Who would ever have guessed that boys would spend their allowance on $15 pairs of socks? They are very cool socks though!
On the way out, they all played this game and each won a ball...
...well, Dylan won three!
Dylan's hockey coach owns a small farm in Mesa and they have dry land practice there on Friday evenings. While we were waiting for everyone else to arrive, the kids were playing with balls in the parking lot. They all came running back and jumped in the car because that rooster was staring at them...too funny!
The sunset reflected on this palm across the parking lot was absolutely gorgeous!

Shelby practiced her flute. This is her first year and she is pretty good already!
Gpa and she put up some wall art in "her" room.
Here is a before picture of the large dog run before demolition. Our neighbor, Ken, and his nephew, Jake, helped Rich take it down on Saturday.
All of the posts were set in concrete so it took the work of a pick-ax, shovel, and Ken's 4x4 truck to remove them. Here goes the last post!
Shelby packed her bags and we all met the rest of her family at hockey. I'm going to miss her being with us. Here are a couple shots of Dylan #16 in action.

Shockingly, we were here a week and two days before we made it to Cantina Laredo. My how we love their Margaritas, the food, and the apple pie dessert! And after all the shopping we did that day, we certainly deserved a treat.

Today it has been three weeks since Bella's surgery and she is doing great! I took a couple pics of her this morning to send to her surgeon along with an update.
Just look at this sunset! Rich had just left to run errands so I was standing at the end of our driveway watching my neighbor, Linda, coming to pick me up for Bunco.
It has been a busy week. We are constantly doing stuff to make the house feel more homelike. Jose is working on the rest of the brush removal. Our realtor is getting us an appointment with an architect to work up plans for some of the projects we would like to do over the next couple of years. Tomorrow the beds for the guest rooms will be delivered so I'll be shopping for linens. And on and on and on...
