- In my life this week… I have had one less kid, as my oldest has been away at scout camp. My other three have definitely been getting their fair share of summer fun in. Tyler caught a little sunburn on his shoulders even after I applied sunscreen multiple times that day. I had to attend my husbands company party without him. Talk about awkward! We went to a picnic at the park day with a bunch of friends. I also did a freezer meal swap with 6 other ladies. Which meant because
of my procrastinationI was too busy to get my meal done sooner, I ended up waking up at 5 am the day of to do my cooking. I had it all ready and made it there just 5 minutes late. Thank goodness for my pressure cooker. I made Pork Barbacoa Café Rio Style from a recipe I found on Pinterest.
- In our homeschool this week… We really have taken this week off of any intentional learning. We hope to get back at it around the first of August.
- Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share… Freezer meals! I can’t tell you how much doing these swaps saves my booty. On nights when I just don’t want to cook, or whatever. We just pop a meal in and bam, DINNER IS SERVED!
- Places we’re going and people we’re seeing… We did one of the most fun (which reminds me, why isn’t funnest a word? UGHH) activities we have done in a while. The Pioneer Museum is hosting a drawing for a very fun basket if you go on a scavenger hunt and take pictures of yourself at all the pioneer historical markers around town. We did it! We got all 12 markers in one day.
- My favorite thing this week was… 2 things actually! My son came home from Scout Camp safe and sound. The scavenger hunt mentioned above.
- My kiddos favorite thing this week was… Tommy’s was going to scout camp. Emily’s was probably sleep. Katey and Tyler’s was definitely the scavenger hunt mentioned above.
- Things I’m working on… blogging more. And this week is fair week!! That is a big deal around here! We are getting ready to take our entries over and start the festivities.
- I’m cooking… Just the Café Rio Pork Barbacoa copy cat recipe that I found on Pinterest. After I made that, I did end up going to lunch at Café Rio over the weekend.
- I rewarded my kids this week by… I bought a special box of ice cream treats, that I never buy. The expensive ones. I let them each have one.
How has your summer been going? Is it keeping you as busy as it is me?
