2012 Blue Jeans Week 34

We made it through the first full week of school.  We had some changes on the home front with church callings.  Ben was called as early morning seminary teacher.  So he teaches high school kids (4 kids total including our Miss A) from our church from the New Testament every morning from 6:10 a.m. to 7 a.m.  He teaches in our basement.  I was released from the Relief Society (women's organization) presidency and put in the Young Women's presidency so I get to be with my two oldest girls.  I meant to get a picture of Ben teaching in the morning this week, but honestly I don't get up that early.  Maybe next week :)
Sunday:  Mr J and Miss E wanted to make cookies today.  They wanted the peanut butter ones with the Hershey's kisses in the middle--yum!   I was happy to oblige.  They are one of our family's favorite cookies.

Monday:  For our family night treat Miss E was in charge, and she made ice cream cookie sandwiches-yum!  Our family really likes cookies, and ice cream makes them even better!

 Tuesday:  Today after school it was windy out, and Miss E decided it would be fun to 'fly' on the trampoline.  She had the best time as the wind whipped her blanket as she jumped.  The trampoline is one of our family's favorite things.
Wednesday:  Mr J had a rough night last night.  He is starting to develop bad allergies, so he was up for several hours during the night because he couldn't breathe through his nose, and then he had some nightmares.  After being up from 3 a.m. to 6:30 a.m.  I was not waking him up for school at 7, so I let him sleep.  He slept until 10 a.m, and then he woke up, walked down the stairs and said to me in a very groggy, sleeply voice, "Mom, you forgot to take me to school!"  :)  so we quickly got him ready and to school by 10:30. 
 Thursday:  Sonic happy hour is another favorite thing of our family's.  It is very convienent that Sonic is right on the way home after picking up the kids from school.  Vanilla limeades are my kids' favorites, and I love a lemonberry fruit slush.
 Friday:  Sometimes I substitute in the kids' elementary school.  Today I was working in their library, and Mr J's class came in.  So I snapped a picture of him reading at his library table, atleast he was supposed to be reading, but then he saw his mother taking a picture of him, and he stuck a book over his face because he was embarrased.  Yes, I am that kind of mom :)
Saturday:  Our girls had a church basketball tournament up in the city today.  They played really well and got 3rd place, but it was a very long day.  We left at 7 a.m. and didn't get home until 5 p.m., and after 6 basketball games we were very tired!
Thanks for visiting.  I posted the directions for the bleached shirts on the post before this if you didn't get to see them.  Have a great week!
