Menu Plan Monday 8-24-2015

Menu Plan Monday arrives again. The school year is in gear again, and my 17 piano students have all had their first lessons of the season. This is going to be a challenging year with them. I put out time slots that I’m available, and let them choose a time. That sometimes results in a […]

Hi everyone! How has your week gone? It has been a momentous one here; last Friday I moved my oldest daughter 3 hours away to college. She is really mature and smart, and I know she’ll do well. It’s just an emotional time for me, thinking back to when she was born, started school, etc. […]

Welcome to the back-to-school edition of Menu Plan Monday! Honestly, the menus this week aren’t anything out of the ordinary. They’re taking a backseat to all the activity involved with the beginning of a new school year. I take my oldest three hours away to begin college on Friday. I’ve been busy teaching the 16-year-old […]

Happy Menu Plan Monday! It’s been a busy week here, and honestly, I have felt pretty depressed about the events in our nation. As a family-friendly blogger, I feel a real responsibility to review and recommend only companies I can feel good about supporting as a Christian. Over the weekend, I chose to remove my […]
