2013 Blue Jeans week 33

Big week this past week.  School started for the kids.  Ben started a new job.  Lots of changes, but good changes.  The house is sure quiet during the days now, and I have a 'to do' list a mile long.  This is the season of quiet days and crazy afternoons/evenings.  Early morning band practices plus after school volleyball and cross country practices will dominate our lives for the next little while--not to mention spelling tests and projects and all the crazy that school brings.  Welcoming our new season of change, here is a look at our week. . .

Our friends who recently moved couldn't take their fish tank, so Mr J inherited it.  He is so super excited about that!  Ben and Mr J took care of moving the tank to his room and getting it cleaned out today.

First day of Ben's new job.  He was not looking for a change.  The new job just fell into his lap, and we decided to accept the change and challenge that came with it.  Change is never an easy thing, but he is so good at what he does.  I know it is going to be a great thing.  He is just amazing!
Trying to get rooms and things organized before school starts this week.  Miss O and Miss A cleaning and organizing their bedroom.

First day of school for Mr J and Miss E!  3rd grade and middle school here we come!

So excited to get home after the first day!

Miss A and Miss O's first day of school!  They started the day after the younger kids and enjoyed one extra day of summer.

We had a church swim party scheduled for this weekend.  Normally our weather right now is very hot, and an evening swim would be extremely welcomed, but not this year.  It was 72 when we left for the pool, and 66 when we went home.  Quite a cool evening swim, but it didn't seem to bother these cute girls!

Hope you had a great week!

  1. That's crazy that y'all started school already. We don't start until Monday the 26th. How exciting for Ben to start a new job! Congrats!!! I hope y'all have a great week. :)

  2. Good luck to Ben with his new job! That's got to be exciting and scary at the same time. Looks like a great first week at school. I think we are finally ready here. I have that same shirt your older girls are wearing in a reddish pink color!
