It’s the first full week of June. That means time to enjoy summer vacation. It looks like we’ll have some cooler weather this week. So no water fun. But hopefully it will be dry so we can at least get outside.
|Come on mom, I’m hungry!|
We really don’t have a lot going on this week. Which means I get to have lots of play time with my kids 🙂 I’ll probably make a trip to the health food store. And Rebecca has a doctor appointment. We might go to a baseball game on Saturday if the weather is nice since we couldn’t go last week.
This is the first week our local farmer’s market is open. The kids and I are looking forward to starting our weekly walks there.

No big updates on myself. I’m slowly learning to let go of control and just let things be. I’m not stressing about what I’m eating. I don’t obsess over the things I “can’t” eat. I’m just thankful for the healthy, nourishing food I can eat…and trying to enjoy it. I’m trying not to think too much about size/looks. I’m focusing on doing things I enjoy (like baking, crafts, writing, walking, reading, etc.) and spending time with my family. My kids are so much happier when I’m less anxious/less stressed. I had another morning with Rebecca this week when I was sitting down with her for breakfast and she just looked at me with a big grin and sparkle in her eye. And she said “I’m happy.” It makes every ounce of struggle I’m going through worth it. I want to continue this trend.
I haven’t thought too much about kitchen projects this week yet. I didn’t have time for ice cream treats last week, so I might try those. We are almost out of granola. I might do some other breakfast baked good. I need to figure out what to do with our homemade marshmallows. So maybe I’ll come up with some kind of treat with those. And we’ll see what produce we get at the farmer’s market to use.
I’m looking forward to a relaxing, fun week. Here’s what’s on the menu. What are you eating this week?
