What is going on this week:
Monday - Payton starts school
Tuesday - My 41st birthday
Sunday - Breakfast scramble (eggs,bacon,potatoes,onions,corn)
Monday - BBQ Chicken & Grilled veggies
Tuesday - Chicken Enchiladas & salad
Wednesday - BBQ Burgers & veggies
Thursday - Thai Peanut Chicken stir fry w/veggies
And so a return to a "normal" schedule begins. Sort of. Darren won't start school until next week, so this week we sort of have one foot on either side of the fence. We will spend this last day of summer vacation cleaning up in the yard, running out to get whatever items we need to fill in the gaps for food, tidying up the house and having a reminder conversation with the kids about rules and expectations for the school year.
Gone are the days where you get excited by school clothes shopping and going to Office Depot to stock up on supply items. We have this down so well that we just do it bit by bit without making a big deal about it.
I miss the dull scissors and the need for the 64 color Crayola box. The cute backpacks and brand new shoes.
