2014 Blue Jeans Week 32

 This week was a fun, good one spent soaking up the last few days of summer.  School starts in 2 days here this week!  So here is a look at our last week. . .

I took a picture of our dinner tonight because the zucchini Miss A grew in her garden, the corn Mr J grew in his garden, the cantaloupe Miss E grew in her garden and the brownie is actually a zucchini brownie that Miss E grew.  The chicken we did not grow :)  But I was impressed by the fruits and veggies of their labors.  Miss O has more squash and pumpkins in her garden which aren't ready yet.  It was a yummy homegrown meal!

Took these 2 back to school supply shopping today--always fun :)

Miss E wanted to make some cupcakes from scratch today.  She made pretty fancy ones too!  Chocolate with penuche filling and frosting.  They were to.die.for! 

We got baby chicks in the spring and today we finally got our first egg!  The first of many more to come from our 7 laying hens we hope!  

Went swimming at the lake with the church youth group this evening.  The girls had fun!

Enjoying one of our favorite summer drinks--Brazilian lemonade (made with limes).  Perfect for a hot summer day!

Miss O and Miss A have had high school marching band camp this week every day from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.  Friday night they had a family dinner to show us what they had been doing.  They had some parents come down and join the kids while they showed them the push ups and other exercises they had been doing this week to get in shape for marching band.  Ben is down there with Miss A and Miss O--love her expression.  These are the hard, very slow push-ups!

Then we got to hear a teaser of what their show will be like this season.  We were very impressed.  Miss O and Miss A are the mellophones in the center of the middle row wearing the Captain American t-shirts :)  Each section was to have the same t-shirts, and my girls are the only mellophones.

Thanks for visiting!  Hope you have a good week!  Come back soon!


  1. You're garden haul is impressive. It all looks so good on the plate. Love farm to table--that's how I grew up. And your own eggs too! Looks like you made the most out of your last week of summer--so much fun! Good luck with back to school. We'll be there tomorrow.

  2. Love that most of the dinner came from your garden - esp the corn! But everything looks so impressive.
