2013 Blue Jeans Week 42

Fall break week--always nice to have days off of school.  Had a dear friend visit, parent teacher conferences, league cross country meet, Ben's new work open house, and then topped the weekend off with another parade.  Man, we really love our band and parades!  Here is a look at our week. . .
Had a dear friend visit us today.  She had served in our area as a missionary for our church  last year and came back to visit.  Our family sure loves and misses her!

I volunteer in Mr J's class once a week.  I was lucky enough to be there when he got to present his log cabin.  He did an awesome job!

Parent teacher conferences this week.  Mr J has one teacher, but Miss E and Miss O have 7 each and Miss A has 8, so we visited with 23 amazing teachers at 3 different schools.  Thankfully we got great reports from all 23, but it was a very long night!  This was Mr J's cute folder he made for us to see his stuff in.  I love the "Escalator lover"  :)  Can you tell he is a small town/country kid? and he really is a "joyful and happy" kid which I am thankful for!

Tonight was a reception for Ben's new work building--it was a pretty fancy thing with engraved glasses that we all used for a toast.  His new place is so nice, and it will be wonderful when he gets to move in soon!

Miss A and her teammates before their League race.  Miss A didn't do as well as she wanted because she had a knee injury, but she still ended up getting 4th which I think is awesome!  Such cute, nice girls on her team!

Parade time again!  It was fun to be with my parents!  They helped Mr J get all the candy he wanted :)

And of course we loved the band at the parade.  Miss E is the 2nd trombone.  Miss O was in there too, but on the other side.  They sounded great!

Thanks for visiting and hope you have a great week!

  1. You get a fall break?! No fair. I could sure use one. We get nothing until Thanksgiving week. Oh and Veterans' day. Loving all the parades. They are such fun especially in a town where you know most everyone in the parade.

  2. My favorite part of volunteering at my kids school is when I get to be there for those precious presentations. Its one of those moments that makes it all worth while :)
