2016 Blue Jeans Week 16

It is getting to be that crazy end of the year school time.  End of the year banquets, awards ceremonies and such.  Busy, busy.  Miss A has 13 days of school left!  Graduation is in about 3 weeks!  Life marches on, and we are just trying to keep u and soak it all in!  Take a look at our week. 
Miss O and these 2 cute girls attended a SAFE conference--Seat belts Are For Everyone--as a part of SADD.  Miss O had a lot of fun if you can't tell :)

Got away with my girlfriends for a day to buy flowers!  love this time of year and being with these amazing ladies!!!

Awards banquet #1 for Miss A--went up to the city where she got her award for the statewide writing contest.  Way to go!!!

In the midst of everything going on, Ben always has his yearly work meetings in Omaha end of April, so we got a way for a few days.  Ben went to meetings and I shopped, scrapbooked in the hotel and just had a very relaxing time!  It was nice to be together.

One fun activity Ben did at his meetings is they took everyone to an art class, and they all got to paint a picture.  Ben is in the orange shirt, front row with his back to us.  Fun stuff!

Then we got back and hit the road running with National Honor Society induction.  Miss A was the president this year, so she conducted the meeting and got to give a talk.  She did a great job!

The senior NHS group!  Amazing group of kids right here!

The new NHS members--Miss O is 3rd from the left.  So proud of these kids!

And then we had forensics open house as this team is heading to the state finals this week.  Miss A is competing in poetry reading and impromptu speaking.  A great group of kids!  Good luck at state!!

Thanks for visiting!  Hope you have a great week!!


  1. Looks like a super busy week with lots of great accomplishments honored. Kids these days amaze me! Glad you found some time to flower shop with the girls and travel with Ben to a work meeting where you found time to scrap. Can't beat that.

  2. Ah ha! So that's what you were doing in Omaha. Very fun. Glad to see you had great treats to keep your energy up too ;)
