2013 Blue Jeans Week 36

What a week, what a week!  Sports are in full swing here.  Miss A had her first cross country meet and Miss O had her first volleyball match.  Of course they were on the same day, but different places.  My kids and their activities constantly remind me that I can't be in two places at once!  But we had fun, and it was a good week!  Here is a look at it. . .
Ben made this amazing lemon curd and strawberry trifle for dessert on Sunday.  So yum!  I was very impressed!!

Ordered a big box of Colorado peaches and freezer packed them today.  Yum!

This is one of the many flowers on my front porch.  Love the color!

Our first den meeting for Scouts.  Mr J got his bobcat award and 2 beads toward his wolf.  Way to go Mr J!

Miss A's first cross country race of the season.  She is the last one on the right end.  Lots of girls in that varsity race, and she did awesome!

Enjoying our after school snack of pretzels dipped in nutella with apple juice!  Yum!  A nice way to touch base and have the kids fill me in on their day.

Thanks for visiting!  Hope you had a good week!  This coming week we have 2 volleyball games, one cross country meet, and then the first football game with Miss O performing with the band during half time.  Hello crazy, here we come. . .

  1. What a great week. That trifle looks amazing! I love berry-lemon anything. Looks refreshing. It's so nice when the guys are good in the kitchen. Stunning flower with amazing color on your porch. Love your afternoon snack shot too. Good luck to the girls with the sports. I can so relate to having 2 events in 2 different locations. Usually I'll go to one and John will go to the other. What will we do when there are 3 events in 3 different places?? Life is such a balancing act and thankfully my kids know all too well I can't always be there for all of them all the time.

  2. All your food pics this week are making me hungry! :)
    You might need to post the recipe for that lemon curd and strawberry looks DELICIOUS.

    Congrats to Mr. J on his Scouting accomplishments!
