Well, hello August. If I’m being honest, I’d have to say that August is my least favorite month. We go back to school and we’re never ready. It’s SO hot here. So hot. But…BUT…we do celebrate the birthday of two of my favorite fellas, so I guess it evens out. One of those fellas will celebrate his 40th birthday and the other will turn 14…and start high school. Sniff. Sniff. [Read more…]
Where has June gone?!? I feel like I say this every month, but really I can tell you where it’s gone: Vacation Bible School, Little Kids Camp, soccer camp, basketball practice, basketball games, haircuts, dentist appointments, etc. Basically I’ve spent the month of June as a glorified taxi driver. Anybody else?!?
Seriously though, I wouldn’t have it any other way. With one entering into high school and morphing into a man, I’m daily reminded that these days are fleeting. July promises to be much of the same, but with a few family getaways that I’m really looking forward to. Oh, and family pictures…but we’ll keep that between us. Our boys will NOT be thrilled with family pictures. Onward to this month’s menu plan…
Well…we made it through May. Barely. School is out now…Hallelujah! We are gearing up for a GREAT summer around here. I sure hope you are as well. There are camps to attend, Vacation Bible Schools to plan, pools to swim in, family to visit, and so much more. We LOVE summer around here!
Well, hello May. By the time you leave, I may be in a puddle in the corner of the room, but right now I am full of optimism, hope, and fresh starts. In the last few months we’ve started a couple of things that we will continue to help us make it through this last.month.of.school. (I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.)
Well, hello March. March is kind of like no man’s land to me. It’s not still winter, but it’s not quite spring. Although, if you live in my neck of the woods, it feels like spring has sprung. Trees and flowers are blooming. The grass is turning green. My middle son is wearing shorts…wait, he does this year round. I guess that’s not a clear indicator of spring.

Hello February. How did you get here? Were we not just in the Christmas season…shopping, wrapping, eating, spending time with family, no school…it’s all a distant memory. Sniff. Sniff. So, here we are looking down at, not January, but February. February. But, I’m not sad. I love February! It’s full of all things fun like chocolate and love and date nights and sweet boys that love their mom. Yep, welcome February!
Once again, I’m going to plan my menus. Grab your calendar below and let’s plan together!
