This morning Megan asked me if I wished it were Friday so we could have the weekend again. My first thought was yes. I do love having my family home and a relaxed schedule. I ended up telling Megan no. I don't want to wish my life away. I want to cherish every moment because as all parents know the time goes way to fast!
The past week zoomed by!
We went on a fun field trip to a popcorn store.
I learned some new things and tasted flavors like dill pickle and biscuits and gravy. I think I will stick with more traditional flavors. :)
As always there are things to be done at home.
I am trying hard for my kitchen to look like this all the time. It is so easy for the counters and table to get cluttered with lunch boxes, mail and school papers. It doesn't bring me pleasure when I have to clear clutter before I begin a task.
I have been working on menu planning.
There is always laundry and something to clean.
We are spending as much time as possible outside. The weather is changing fast! We cut grass yesterday afternoon and the wind was quite chilly.
Monthly grocery shopping was completed. After stopping at three stores I still have a little bit left in the grocery budget. I was able to stock my pantry as there was a good sale on some canned goods and spaghetti sauce. I will only need to purchase produce and milk the rest of the month.
Cooler weather means more evenings indoors. We love to play games!
I hear so many woman say they could never stay home because it is borning. I always shake my head when I hear that. I find that I never run out of things to do. Actually I feel just the opposite. I find there is rarely enough hours in the day to complete all the things I would like to do. I love being home!
May your day be filled with joy and contentment!
