2012 Blue Jeans Week 8

Sunday:  Miss A is going to be in high school next year!!! Ahh!  Our high school has a madrigals choir--an auditions only song and dance choir.  They usually do not let incoming freshmen in, but the choir director changed her mind this year and is letting incoming freshmen tryout.  Ben was playing the piano so Miss A could practice her solos.  Tryouts are this week, so keep your fingers crossed. 

Monday:  My kids are into chopsticks.  They enjoy using them whenever they can.  Tonight we had chicken and rice, so Mr J pulled his out to eat.

Tuesday:  The drama in our front yard continues to unfold.  This is the new poll they put in today.  Isn't it ridiculous???  Look at it compared to the old poll!!  Ugh.  Makes me sick.

Wednesday:  Today was a fun day.  I was asked to accompany Miss O's class on a field trip to an educational science center about an hour away.  They did hands-on labs in bio-mechanics and pendulums.  Miss O was doing balance activities on the Wii in this lab.  Fun stuff!

Thursday:  Today was even more fun.  Some friends and I got together, had lunch, and made these cute hot pads.  So grateful for good friends to keep me grounded and sane :)

Friday:  My beautiful flowers from Ben for Valentine's are still going strong.  Fresh flowers just light up a kitchen I think.
Saturday:  It was a fairly nice day, so we all went to the park and played around on the track.  Mr J and Miss E were having a race.  With his tongue out Mr J is super fast, so watch out :)

Thanks for visiting and hope you have a great week!
