2015 Blue Jeans Week 18

A good week--started out low key with Ben and I spending some time in Omaha for a few days.  He had work meetings and I tagged along.  Thanks to my amazing sister who watched the kids!  Then we hit the ground running as soon as we got home mid-week with all the kids' activities--track meets, birthday, state forensics, National Honor Society.  Man.  Counting down the days until school is out!  10 days left!!  Take a look at our week. . .
Ben and I were able to visit the Omaha Museum of Art while we were there.  Love art museums!  This one wasn't too big, but very nice, and even better--it is free :)

So while Ben had work meetings I got lots of things done--shopping, reading, relaxing and scrapbooking.  I came prepared with my Project Life stuff, took over the hotel room, and got caught up on our 2015 album and then got 2 mini albums done from our family reunion and family vacation from last summer.  It was so nice to get those done!!!

National Honor Society meeting.  Miss A is the president for next year, 

After the National Honor Society meeting the forensics team members that were going to state did an open house.  They performed their state pieces.  It was a great performance!  Miss A on the end on the right.  She qualified for impromptu speaking and original oration.

And this amazing girl had a birthday in the midst of all this crazy.  She actually had a track meet on her birthday, so we had to celebrate a day late, then her friend party was a day later, but that is okay.  She had a birthday few days instead of just one day.  Happy Birthday Miss O!  You are amazing and we love you tons!!!

And then the forensics team headed to state on Friday.  A great send off to a great weekend.  They all did awesome!  So proud of them!

And the same day Miss A headed off to state Miss E had her last track meet.  Crazy day.  But one track season is DONE!  Yeah!  The high school one still has several weeks, but we can cross one off the list.  Miss E had an awesome season.  She loved her relays and enjoyed the hurdles even though we cringed every time she ran them.  It was a great season, lots of medals for her, and we are looking forward to what she can accomplish next year.  We aren't used to sprinters--or hurdlers--in our family, but we are sure glad we have her!!!

I am on the board of directors for our Alumni association.  We have some big plans to help the schools and had a fundraiser Saturday.  It went well.  The people on the board are so great to work with!  So nice to work with people who care!

Thanks for visiting!  Have a great week!!!


  1. Happy birthday to Miss O! That is so great your sister was able to stay and hold down the fort so you could join Ben on his trip and wow you made a lot of process with your scrapping. Good for you! I now have the project life app on an ipad mini and am almost caught up with this year. It helps so much because I'm just not home enough to get it done the physical way even if that's what I prefer. Looks like the kids had a great eventful week. The end of the year stuff is always crazy busy. I can't believe they only have 10 days left--so lucky! Enjoy it ;0)

  2. WOW! I am so impressed that you got so much scrapbooking done on your trip. GO YOU!
    ♪ ♫ Happy birthday to Miss O! ♪ ♫
    I am blown away by all the things your kids have going on w/ track meets, NHS, speech, etc. You are a fabulous Mama juggler to keep all those balls in the air.
    HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO YOU on Sunday!!! ♥ ♥ ♥
