Project 365 - Week 28

Week 28.

Well, it's been very hard to get back into the swing of things after vacation.....I definitely miss the cooler weather!!!!  It is so hot and humid here....ugh!

I am hoping that this next week will be more productive for me, but this week wasn't too bad!  :)

Here are my pictures:

 We got home from our vacation today....
...that means lots of laundry!

 We were so tired, we decided to spend the 4th at home....just the four of us.  It was quiet, but we had so much fun swimming together and playing games.  Of course we had to have homemade ice cream!!!!

 Jared was invited to be part of an Honors Band Camp at OBU.  I dropped him off today and will go back on Friday to pick him up.

 With jared gone, I have my 2 best eaters here.  That means I can experiment with new recipes...whoop!  I also was experimenting with some wonderful truffle oil that I got while on vacation., the stuff is amazing!!  I used it on the spinach...yum!

 We started our VBS program last Sunday...we are having it during Sunday school each week.  It is a safari theme and these are some of the animals that my daughter and another girl from church made.  They are made from saw horses...aren't they adorable?!!

 Picked up Jared today.  His concert was wonderful!!!  I am so amazed at what these kids can learn and put together in 3 1/2 days!

Here is a video of my favorite piece they did.  Jared has one of the solos in the beginning and another one later in the piece. 

Went to pick peaches this morning to make some Jam.  However, we got there too late and the trees were already picked over.  I did get a few but they still have to ripen.  I guess I will be heading back next week some time!

I hope ya'll had a great week too!!!

I spent today catching up on laudry from our vacation so that first picture totally "spoke" to me. :)

The giraffee and zebra are adorable. My daughter would love that giraffee as they are her favorite animal.

Its tough coming back from spend a couple days wondering why all of life can't be like that. :)

Love the animals, I bet the kids did, too!

Kim said...

Hot and humid is right! I'd forgotten how humid Michigan could be :0
It does sound like a productive week!
The girls did a great job on the animals. Cute!

That vacay laundry is so much fun (not)...

peach jam...yum, I have never made any. How many peaches do you need for a batch?

Great week.


The animals were adorable. Hot and humid here and highs in the high 90's this week...although we had two good rain showers Saturday it was not enough to alleviate the drought. The peaches looked so yummy.

I love homemade ice cream! Yumm. And I've never actually hear of truffle oil, but I'd definitely be up to trying it.

Alyssa spent a lot of time at our house making cute creations. The zebra and giraffe are super cute!

Our church does the summer Sundays VBS thing too. Works very well.
Yummy peaches, reminds me of all the picking we did last summer.
