2014 Blue Jeans week 35

Behind is the word here lately.  I am just running behind.  I took on the responsibility of running the citizens' campaign for new schools in our town and that has been quite overwhelming.  Say a little prayer for me, our campaign and our kids.  This is all about the kids, their future, and they need new schools.  Anyway, in between all that stuff, we have been busy with all the other things of life.  We enjoyed our 3 day weekend. Volleyball games and cross country meets start this next week, so extra busy.  Here is a look at our week. . .
Ben and Mr J were in charge of dinner tonight.  They made mini stuffed pizzas.  They were good!

Had back to school night at the middle school.  Miss E showing off her locker.

The ALS ice bucket challenge has been sweeping our town lately.  All our bands did it.  Miss E got challenged individually, so here she goes :)

Miss O told me something I knew I needed to document, she said, "Mom, thank you for making me take piano and not letting me quit."  Wow, that meant a lot!  She is working on a Piano Guys song lately that we love to hear her play.  She told me she was glad she could play songs like that now.  

The kids had some spare time this weekend and enjoyed playing games together.  They are playing Seven Wonders here.

Mr J is very good about practicing his piano every day after school.  Today I just sat down, put my feet up and enjoyed hearing him play.  

We have had these 2 cute sister missionaries serving in our town from our Church for the last several months.  They are both from Tonga.  One of them is moving on, so we had to get a picture.  

Thanks for visiting!  Have a great week and come back soon!


  1. That is so neat that Miss O told you she was glad you made her keep playing the piano!
    Parenting WIN! Hopefully that makes all those times she didn't want to play worth it.
    That's such a great talent to have, especially in our church where there's always opportunities to play the piano.
    Don't you just love sister missionaries? So cute!
    Have a great week & best of luck on your citizens' campaign!!!

  2. Love to see guys in the kitchen and it's so great your kids are so into music. That is certainly lacking in our house. Good luck with your new schools campaign. Sounds like a lot of work but it will be worth it in the end.
