2013 Week 35

We made it!
 Through the start of preschool,
 one full week of full day kindy and scooter/bike accidents,
and full blossoming independence.  

I think we're all enjoying being back in the routine of the school year.
I'm still a bit stressed on the mornings that I have to pack lunches for both kids, snacks,
and feed and dress everyone, but so far we're making it out of the house on time!
We'll see how next week goes!

Dinners this week:
Sunday - Chili rellenos (we didn't get to them last week) with rice and beans and greens.
Monday - Grilled salmon, potatoes, corn, with a salad.
Tuesday - Slow cooker summer veggie stew with homemade bread.
Wednesday - Green noodles, fruit salad and fresh bread.  Grilled chicken for Scott.
Thursday - My dad's here, maybe dinner out.
Friday - Rockies game, hot dogs and nachos for all!
Saturday - Family wedding out of town!
