Happy Labor Day, everyone! I’m not totally sure what we’re celebrating — unions? People who work? Well, I’m no fan of unions, but I can’t help but get behind hard work. So hopefully everyone can enjoy the day and take a...

Here we are at another Menu Plan Monday, the final one of August. It’s looking like a hot week here, with temps near 90 all week. That should be a challenge for the kids in the high school marching band (my youngest daughter is one of them), ma...

Welcome to menu planning for August! Even though we still have a couple of weeks here until school starts, August always feels like the end of summer to me. Daughter #3 is almost finished with her first band camp. Daughter #1 is making this pile in t...

Menu Plan Monday 7-20-15

Happy Monday, everyone! How was your week? It was busy here; the kids’ 4-H projects were all turned in a judged. I enjoy the fair so much that every year I’m a little sad when it begins, just because it will be a year before it all happen...

So here we are, already at the halfway point of June. Hard to believe! With graduation behind us, dare I say this might be a somewhat quiet week? Not really, with summer gym each weekday morning for two of the girls, and 7 piano students arriving one...
