Is it really Sunday…and the last day of August?? The last week and a half flew by. I’m not even sure what day it is.
But this week it’s time to get back on track and get started with school, work, fall activities, etc. I hope I’m up for the challenge.
Recovery is going very well so far. And our sweet baby is also doing well. I’m thankful I’ve got some energy and feel somewhat ready to take on the tasks of the week.
It’s hard to believe that just a week after bringing home a new member of the family my big girl will be going to school all day every day. We sure are going to miss her!! But I’m sure she’ll love first grade. She also starts dance this week. So I’ll get to try driving and getting all three kids ready and out the door on my own this week.
Another new project for me is packing lunches every day. On the flip side that will be one less lunch to make during the day.
We don’t have any big holiday plans. We’re just enjoying our last day at home as a family before school starts and my husband is back to work. If the weather cooperates maybe we’ll walk to the local ice cream stand. We didn’t go once all summer.
I’ve got a few kitchen projects planned. But I’m still keeping them to a minimum. I want to enjoy these few weeks of the newborn phase as much as possible.
I’m going for easy meals this week. I just never know if I’ll have one hand or two free when it’s time to make dinner. Here’s what’s on our menu.
