2015 Blue Jeans Week 36

We made it through the first full week of school--first cross country meet of the season, first football game and band performance.  It was a busy week!  Trying to get enough sleep and balance everything is quite the challenge, but it was a good week!  Take a look. . .
We decided we are going to make a different kind of cookie each Sunday.  This week Miss O and Mr J made peanut butter blossom cookies.  Yum!  Will share the recipe tomorrow.  

First cross country meet of the season, and it was soooooo  hot!  I am so thankful that Miss E is running middle school cross country.  Because she is she has the same coach, practices and meets as the high school, so all 3 of our girls have the same sports schedule this fall.  LOVE THIS!  It is saving my life with all the other crazy we have going on.  So this was Miss E's first race ever--my sprinter doing distance.  She did awesome!  You can see Ben in the green shirt behind her cheering her on.  Didn't realize I got that in the picture until after.  Pretty neat.  So proud of her!  A medal in her first 2 mile cross country race.

And this is our high school girls cross country team--yes only 3 girls and 2 of them are mine.  

And this is their team prayer before they run.  Love it.  They all did great despite the horrible heat and humidity.  Ugh.  Hoping this next week will be cooler and feel more like fall, not midsummer.

Friday was the first football game and the first performance for the band.  Miss A is out there as a drum major--she is on the ladder in the back field.  Miss O is playing the mellophone somewhere in there.  They did a great job!  Excited for marching band season and Friday night lights!

And Saturday was the best college football game day EVER!  Did you see the BYU vs Nebraksa game?  At least the last second of the game?  OH my!  Love our cougars here!  Our friends had us over for a football watching party, and Miss O was really getting into it :)  love us some cougar football here!

Thanks for visiting!  Hope you had a great week!


  1. Looks like a full & busy week. That BYU Hail Mary play at the end was AWESOME!
    I'm SO GLAD they won.
    I hope y'all have a great (and much cooler temperature wise) week. :)

  2. Busy times! That's great the girls are all on the same sports schedule though. That will most certainly help! Justin who in high school now is playing tennis but that does not start until spring so once spring comes I'll be juggling high school swim meets with high school tennis matches. I'm kind of glad he has no fall sport because water polo takes over our life and all our time for now. Peanut butter blossoms are one of my favorites cookies. My grandmother taught me to make them. Yum! Enjoy!
