Pictured above is a snapshot from an overnight getaway to a hotel in Duluth over our "spring Break". I totally recommend Girl, Stop Apologizing if you want a quick and inspirational read.
Meal planning has gone by the wayside the last couple of weeks .
1) Our three boys (in two different sections) had a two week class of after school swimming classes between 3:30-5:30 p.m. in a nearby community. Instead of meals together we split up, James took the boys to swimming lessons with a picnic supper in a cooler bag.
2) A week ago everyone in our household was hit with the stomach flu.
3) We have been off of school for a couple of days for a short "spring break" from school.
Needless to say we have been out of routine.
Well, now I am back to business, and I have to be! The track season starts tomorrow and the girls head coach is out of town for two weeks, so I (the assistant coach) needs to run practices. That means I have to be extra organized with dinners at home as well.
Here it goes:
