2013 Blue Jeans Week 37

Busy week--2 volleyball games, one cross country meet, one band playing at the football game, and bought a new car.  The weekend was not long enough to recover.  I need a vacation!  Here is a look at our week. . 
Sunday night we took some time to relax and play a game.  This is called Qwirkle, and we think it is a lot of fun.

Miss O has a bug collection due this week, so everyone was helping her catch bugs tonight.  My freezer was full of little baggies full of bugs for a few days.  Fun stuff!

First volleyball game at home--she has such a good attitude and has so much fun!

She is also a very good player!

One day a week my kids get out of school 30 minutes earlier than usual.  On their early release day today we went to see a really cool art exhibit.  All these are made from cardboard.

Cross country meet #2, and Miss A did not disappoint.  She did awesome!

First home football game of the season, and Miss O's first time to perform with the band.  They did awesome!  It was so fun to watch!!

So, more about our exciting van shopping adventures if you are interested in the previous post, but we were able to make things work and get up to the city today to finally get us a new (to us) van!  It is a Honda Odyssey, and we love it!

Thanks for visiting!  Come back often!  Have a great week!

I am linking up with The Mom Creative.


  1. Oh good! You got your new van after all. That's wonderful! Your life is just as busy and crazy as mine. Love that band picture and the bug collection. LOL! I can so picture the bags of bugs in your freezer. Way to go girls on the sports. It's so exciting to watch the kids compete especially when they get older.

  2. CONGRATS on the new van! :)
    What a BUSY week w/ all the activities y'all had going on!
    I LOVE that shot of Miss O in her band uniform w/ her instrument.
    I've never played Qwirkle but have heard good things about it. :)

  3. Gorgeous car! Great choice! And I'm thrilled there are more Mom's out there who take their kids to exhibits and cultural events. That's what makes our BA in Humanities gold :)
