2014 Blue Jeans Week 17

A fun, busy week starting with Easter, 2 track meets, author visits, an amusement park visit, and then Miss A had her state solo competition which she got a "1"!  Way to go Miss A!!!!  Busy week!  Take a look. . .
Easter Sunday--showing off new Easter dresses and tie

Twin ties--aren't they handsome!

The missionaries from our church shared with us a great scripture lesson.  I was so impressed with their creation!  Talking about building up strong defenses to protect our families and keep them close to Christ.

Track Meet #1 of the week for Miss O--she did awesome--3 medals in her races!

Had the sister missionaries over to help us get the garden cleaned out today.  This sister went to BYU, so we all had to wear our BYU shirts and get a photo.  

Had two visiting children's book authors/illustrators here this weekend for our county young author celebration.  This is Mr J with author Peter Lerangis.  A great presentor!!

Miss O with author Peter Lerangis and some of his books she got signed.

Miss O and the amazing illustrator Ard Hoyt.  He was just awesome to hear present!  So talented!  Check out his books if you haven't seen them before.  

Miss E and illustrator Ard Hoyt with some of her favorite books of his.  Miss A and Ben were not there because they were at track meet #2 of the week, but no photos of that because I had the camera with me :)

Saturday our family was scattered across the state.  These two partners in crime went to the city to the amusement park as a fun end of school trip.  Miss A and Ben were in another city (with no camera) for her state voice solo where she got a "1"!!!!  And Mr J and I were at the author celebration.  Busy day!  Only 3 weeks of school left!!!!  I am ready for summer!!

Thanks for visiting!  Come back soon!


  1. I sure do love those twin ties :) Good times!

  2. Love the ties! And my kids love seeing the author to 39 Clues. Wow!

  3. The kids look so nice in their Easter best. Love that Mr J and your husband have matching ties--too cute! Totally awesome to have an author day like that. I'm sure it's very inspiring for the kids. I can't wait for summer either. I'm so ready for school to be out. Enjoy the last of it.

  4. I love the photos of the fan in their Easter Sunday best!
