This week’s real food meal plan and agenda focus on house work, fun foods and family time.
I pray you have a blessed day of celebrating our Lord’s birth. What a special day it is. We will be celebrating with extended family. We already had a great time with family last week too!!
This week our goal is to finish getting the house settled. Yesterday I organized bathrooms and the mud room Still to go – the big kids’ bedroom, our school room and the spare bedroom/craft room. There are a few boxes to be unpacked yet as well.
Kids In The Kitchen.
I really want to get my kids in the kitchen this week. My daughter got her own set of knives for Christmas and she’s been itching to give them a try (she started yesterday chopping veggies for our party).
More School, Please.
If it were up to my kids we’d be starting up school again Monday morning. They are so excited about our new school room and our new puzzles, games and flashcards (functional Christmas presents!). I told them we could do a few things but we won’t be starting up full time school work until next week. I need more time to plan and prepare!! At least that’s my goal for the second half of the school year…more planning ahead.
This week’s real food meal plan has some of my older recipes I haven’t made in a while. I thought it would be fun to let the kids help make them and have some new foods now that we’re expanding everyone’s diet.
