This week's real food meal plan and agenda focus on back to school, fall produce and diet experiments.

Can someone please make time just stop today? I’m just not ready for my baby boy to head off to kindergarten tomorrow!

I think we all have mixed emotions about having one child home school and one go to school. We’ll sure miss him here. But I know he’ll have so much fun. And as an added bonus his school just became nut free!

This week is packed with school activities, my toddler’s check up, my eye exam, errands and family over. I’ll be doing some serious planning today to make sure I stay on top of everything.

Allergy Update

Last week we did more allergy testing for my son and got some confusing results. We’re waiting on more testing now. And looking into other reasons for his stomach aches. In the mean time we tried introducing eggs for both him and my youngest. So far so good!

Home School Update

We finished our first official week of home school. We had such a blast (follow me on facebook or instagram to see what we’ve been up to). I’m so excited for the year ahead. And I’m so happy to gradually see my daughter make progress in her focus/behavior.

Homestead Update

We put an offer on another house last week…and it was rejected. Looks like we’re still in the waiting period. God’s got big plans for us, but in his time, not ours.

I’m experimenting with my thyroid medication dose this week. And hoping I can feel the difference!

In The Kitchen

Over the weekend I canned 28 quarts of peaches and 6 pints of chili sauce. I’m glad I have some good helpers here! It was a big job. Next on the list is pears. But they aren’t quite ready yet. I have plenty more kitchen projects this week. They include:

I apologize for the lack of new posts lately. Life has been pretty crazy. There is more good stuff in the works.
