2016 Blue Jeans Week 23

Loving summer.  Our days are busy, but our evenings are not which is how I love it.  Miss A was gone all week as a counselor to Girls State.  That was a good experience for her.  We had our first swim meet of the season.  That is always fun.  The kids made some awesome cupcakes.  It was a good week.  Take a look. . .
Sunday afternoon the kids made cupcakes and had a lot of fun being creative and decorating them.  Nice to have extra time in the summer to do things like this.

First swim meet of the year--Miss E diving in--Mr J also competed.  They did awesome.  I admire those kids so much.  I am not a good swimmer, and they work very, very hard.  It is a tough workout!

Miss O is giving Mr J guitar lessons this year.  It is fun to see them and hear what they do.

Our newest driver in the family.  Miss E's big thing this summer is driver's ed.  That takes a lot of time, but she is doing great.

Ben and Mr J working on the cars.  With 4 cars in this house, there is always something that needs to be done.

Miss A and some other junior counselors getting ready for Girls State.

The Girls State junior and senior counselors.  A great group of ladies!!!

Thanks for visiting!  Have a great week!!!

2016 Blue Jeans Week 22

First full week of summer!  All 3 girls are working this summer.  Mr J and Miss E are doing swim team.  Miss E has driver's ed and then all have music/band lessons.  It is going to be a fun summer!  Lots of down time in there too, though.  That is important!  Take a look at our week. . .
Mr J will be starting band next school year, and will be doing band lessons over the summer.  He has decided he wants to play the saxophone!  Cool!  It should go well with the trombone and French horn that the other girls play. 

Miss E's first day of work was Memorial day--she is a cashier at the pool but still gets a cool suit and whistle :)  Miss O and Miss A also had to work Memorial day, so it was a quiet evening for Ben, Mr J and me.  I think we will have lots of those this summer.

Visiting the cemetery as part of our Memorial Day tradition.  This is a memorial to Civil War soldiers and a civil war cemetery. 

A gorgeous sunset this week. . . amazing color!

Miss O (in her Stars Wars shirt), Miss E and I went to a 3 day church youth conference in the city end of last week.  It was a lot of fun for the kids, but a lot of work!  We were very tired when we got home!  

My kids love to decorate cakes and cupcakes.  Today Miss E made cupcakes and cream cheese frosting so she could decorate some fancy cupcakes.

Miss E and Mr J got in on it too.  

And their final creations.  Pretty impressive!

Thanks for visiting!  Have a great week!
