2017 Blue Jeans Week 26

Busy summer week.  Said good-bye to some very dear friends, enjoyed some cooler summer temps and did fun stuff outside.  Mr J wrapped up his two weeks of summer theater camp with a play, Miss E spent a week in Colorado for church girls' camp and on the school board we said good-bye to our retiring superintendent.  What a week!  Loving summer!  Take a look. . .
We have been friends with this amazing couple since 1998.  Raised our kids together, been though a lot, we moved a few hours away, but we still get together.  They are the kind of friends you can go 6 weeks or 6 months without contact, but as soon as you are together it seems like no time has passed.  They are moving really far away now, and we were so sad to say good-bye.  Will be much longer between seeing them now, but friends forever!  So grateful they are part of our lives!  Good friends are such a huge blessing!

Hello summer and smores!  Enjoying this classic summer treat in our backyard fire pit.  One of the first things we made when we bought our house over 12 years ago was this fire pit in the backyard.  So glad we did this!  Ben and the kids made it.  So grateful they did!

More summer fun...croquet :)

Mr J has been doing a children's summer theater camp the past two weeks.  To wrap it up, they do a play.  He was Prince Charming in a mixed up fairy tale play.  He said he didn't realize some people had the same shoe size, and the shoe fit Cinderella's step sister, so he married her :)  It was a cute play.  He really enjoys things like that.

I have been on the school board for 2 years now.  Our superintendent was retiring end of June.  Had a thank you and good-bye luncheon for him.  He did a great job and will be missed.  Looking forward to working with the new one for the next few years now.

Miss E and her group of girls who were in Colorado this week for a high adventure church girls' camp.  She loved it!  So grateful for the people who planned it and took such good care of them!

Thanks for visiting!  Hope you have a great 4th of July!
