2014 Blue Jeans Week 36

A fun week . .volleyball games and cross country meets started this week.  Of course, they are on the same days and in totally opposite directions, so we couldn't make it to both.  Sadly we missed Miss E's first volleyball game, but we made it to Miss A and Miss O's first cross country meet.  It was a super hot and humid day--95 degrees, not the best running weather, but they did awesome.  More below.  So here is a look at our week. . .
These missionaries from our Church have been serving in our area for the last few months, and one was getting moved this week, so we got a picture.

It is apple time!  We have 2 apple trees in our backyard, and this year they are full of these beautiful apples!  Yum!

Ben has made about 30 quarts of applesauce with our apples so far, and we still have lots left on the tree.  My next project is to make apple butter.

First cross country race of the season!  It was Miss O's first meet ever since she is a freshman.  This is Miss O and Miss A with 2 of their teammates.

So Miss O ran the JV race and won by a long shot!  #2 was no where close to her.  You can see Miss A cheering her on the sidelines.  We were super proud of her!  Miss A ran varsity and lead her team and medaled.  We were super proud of her too!  Next week I think the coach is going to have them run together in varsity, so that will be neat to see them run together!

Had to get a picture of the team as they prayed before the varsity race.  Love that!

Mr J made a rainbow with his trains today after school.  Trains are the best!

Saturday we had a church girls basketball tournament in the city.  We only had 4 girls from our congregation, so one from another congregation joined us.  The tall girl in the center and I coached.  It was a long day for these 5 girls.  They played 9 games, won 7 of them and ended up 3rd overall.  They never got a break--played the whole day!  I was proud of them!

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

  1. Your apples and applesauce look amazing and make me want to head to apple hill here. Yum! Great cross country pictures. Sounds like the girls are doing wonderful and with the basketball too. It never ends and I can so relate about events being at the same times in different directions--that's hard. Miss those Thomas trains and what a cool idea to make a rainbow with them. He's super creative and fun! Good luck with this next week.
