yesterday was rachel's 1st day of high school. i can not believe that i have two children in high school now, josiah and rachel. josiah, olivia, and amanda started school this morning. it is just jacob and i home this morning. scheduled life is back. i guess that is good somewhat. i like the laid back summers of doing whatever we want, when we want. but, it does feel good to be back on some kind of a schedule too. it does make more time for me to study and get other things accomplished.
during the school year, i plan and prepare more meals for us to eat together. i make a monthly meal plan and shop weekly for what we need. in the summer, we eat out a lot and aaron cooks on the grill most of the time when we eat at home. so, i shop as we need food and i never plan any day of meals more than a day or two ahead of time. i enjoy cooking a lot. but i do not like cooking the same things over and over again. i like to try new recipes. so, today is planning day. i am setting up our monthly meal plan and making a grocery list for the week. then, off to walmart. here we go!
