Things have slowed just a bit, since we are at the end of basketball season. I'm going to relax a little before the spring sports start. We still have cheer and swimming practice though as we prep for State Games.
Last week the kids started in an eSports Game club. They meet weekly and its an integrative program with the game club at the high school. So it will make our Wednesdays very busy.

Why I plan.....
Who isn't busy?!?! Kids schedules, schoolwork, work, WOW!! Life just does not stop!
When I create a menu, I include our schedule on it also. In fact, I type the schedule into the table that I created first. Then I know what is going on that day, and I can plan crockpot meals or even know if I need to have a make-ahead meal ready. I do not use a fancy downloadable calendar, I simply use Microsoft Word. I have a table I created on there. At the bottom, I keep a running list of menu items that either I want them to try or food that is loved by all.
Hope everyone has a great week!! See everyone next Monday!
