2013 Blue Jeans Week 7

We had a really good week last week.  It was nice the kids only had 3 days of school, and we had a lot of fun celebrating Valentine's Day together.  Trying to enjoy this quieter time of the year before track and soccer get started and crazy spring starts.  Here is what we were up to this week. . .

Sunday afternoon was Valentine working time.  Everyone worked on their school, family, and friend valentines for the week.

Monday nights are family nights.  We have a lesson, sing songs, play games, and have treats.  We switch who is responsible for each activity.  Mr J was in charge of activities tonight, and he wanted to do car racing.  He brought down his hot wheels and let us all choose a car and set up his tracks.  Ben was the official starter.  It was lots of fun.  So glad we have a boy in our house so we can do things like this.  

Miss E has been working so hard on her Colonial Fair project for school which was due this week.  We were very impressed with her finished board over the Massachusetts Bay Colony.  Her teacher was too.  She got an A+--way to go Miss E!

For Valentine's Day the kids had the day off school, so Ben took the day off work, and we went to the city. In the morning we went to the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art which is amazing.  The kids loved it.  

After lunch on Valentine's Day we took the kids ice skating.  Mr J and Miss E had never been.  The older girls had been a few times with school trips, but Ben and I hadn't been in 14 years.  Luckily no broken bones, but lost of slipping and falling especially for Mr J, but he loved it and just laughed and got right back up.  We had a lot of fun.

So fun to spend the whole day with my family and my valentine.  Man, I am sure lucky to be married to him. He is amazing and so cute!  We had a great day!

Saturday morning we like to do different things for breakfast since we aren't rushed to get anywhere.  Today we made "Daddy muffins" which are wonderful!  Mr J and Miss E were great helpers making them.  I will post the recipe on Wednesday, so check back!

Thanks for visiting!  Hope you all had a great Valentine's day, and come back soon!

  2. Looks like a fun week with lots of creativity!

  3. Looks like a wonderful week. What a great Valentine's trip. I love ice-skating and wish I could do it more. I grew up skating on country ponds and have so many fond memories of that.

  4. What a great week. I want to go ice skating. We are bracing for crazy sports to start here too - but it is little league & swimming & basketball for us. Enjoy! At least it is great exercise.
