I thought I would try a new round up this week. So here we go!
What we're eating this week ~ I had time to cook this week so everything listed is homemade and mostly organic. It always is a relief when we have enough margin in our lives to eat homemade and healthy instead of pre-made healthy foods that cost so much more. This week we are having granola, quiche, baked potato night, lots of salads, bean and chicken burritos, calico beans, roasted veggies with store bought tater tots and barbecue.
I am also back to making homemade dog food every week for Boomer. He is losing weight and has so much more energy.
What I am loving ~ Watching my son build his Eureka Crates from Kiwi. We saved all of his kits over the summer, and he has been building one each week. He has created so many cool things! I love watching him learn.
What we've been up to ~ You mean when I am not racing dear daughter from dance class to work to sign language class and back to dance again?! We are really hitting our homeschool groove around here in between all of the racing around. Dear son is mostly on his full school schedule and dear daughter is doing about as much as she can with all of her out-of-home commitments.
We did start driver's ed for Anne. That added 7 to 10 hours a week to our schedule! CRAZY! Dean attended an awesome party this past weekend which included paint ball, movies and eating out. He had a blast and I didn't get a single picture. We also made it to the monthly live action role play club in our town. Dean is the one without the shield in the video below.
What I am doing this weekend ~ Now that the school year is underway, all of my kids' friends have returned from their travels. October is also birthday month in our house, so I am anticipating having a full house of teens for many weekends to come. I love a rowdy house of squealing teens.
|These three teens are likely to be together lots over the next few weeks.|
What I am watching/reading ~ We just finished season 8 of Call the Midwife. I am also watching Mom of 10 on YouTube. They are currently spending 6 months traveling through Europe. What an awesome experience! I am reading Born to Rise by Deborah Kenny. It is a wonderful book about education and how to transform it to work better.
What I am looking forward to next month ~ I love October. I am looking forward to my daughter's 16th birthday, online driver's ed being completed, Halloween, and autumn weather.
