Today was a good day. I planned out the next 3 weeks worth of menus using pretty much what I already have on hand. Of course I will have to buy things like milk and eggs and stuff but most everything else I already have. Today for dinner we had BLT's on homemade bread with pasta salad and fried zucchini. It wasn't' what I had planned for dinner but it sounded so good and we are getting quite a few tomatoes coming our way.
The kids are sure enjoying school. They seem to be doing well with everything so far. Of course usually the first couple weeks are review. They are enjoying getting to see their friends. I have been considering homeschooling my kids, but that is one of the main things holding me back, them not having that outside contact with all the other kids that is. But that contact is also something making me want to home school, some of the things they come home saying is just ridiculous that other little children have told them!!! I remember my daughters first day of kindergarden. I picked her up and she told me that she needed to become one of the popular kids!! I didn't think popular was even in kindergartners vocabulary. Anyways, it started with that and only got worse from there. I love my kids and I just worry about outside influence. I did some crazy things when I was younger just because I thought they were "cool".
Tomorrow I am going to try to sweep and mop the whole house, do the dusting, and try to figure out what to make to take to the family reunion. I'm thinking maybe peanut butter and jelly cookies, but I'm not sure yet.
