I'm really just lacking time to specifically blog so I'm doing a very random post! Yeah!
School Starting Soon!!!
Two weeks from today my youngest two start school. Everyone is finally ready for this (Emma was reading day two of summer break). I just don't like that they have to ride the bus on the windy road out to their little school in the heat. It's great to have them out there at this small wonderful school, but the road is long and curvy. We are really excited about Emma's teacher this year. We were hoping Caedmon would get the great fourth grade teacher that Emma had but it looks as though he is not. However, that class would be a 4/5 combo and he was in a combo last year. I'm glad on that account that he is not again this year. Also, it would be pushing him a bit. He really needs to take academics slow till his brain develops a bit more. He is really needing lots of boyish wiggle time right now. He is always the largest kid in the class but he is actually one of the youngest. This teacher he did get is a pretty tough, and it's a guy. I think that could be good for him but a little shocking as well. He will be a little more militant and perhaps that is what God knows Caedmon needs. I decided I would not fret at all about this years teacher placement but would trust God to put him where he needed to be. It's not what I would have chosen but how often does God follow my plan anyway...:)
Money Saving Mom put up about a lady who had structured five frozen assembled dinners for the crockpot. The crockpot is a working mothers friend. I get so tired when I get home and it's so hard to push myself to get right into the kitchen. Then, add the triple digit days and I'm really dragging. So, I told my friend Michelle about it and she had a great idea! We should get the stuff and get together to assemble packets together. It worked out really well. I highly suggest doing this. We are cooking the Hawaiian Chicken one today in the crockpot. I'll let you know how it comes out. This lady did test these though and the comments on the post seem to indicated great applaud. She is working on coming up with another batch of these. I personally don't need them to use five nights in a row but to use on days I need the help. All I have to do today when I get home is put rice in my awesome Pampered Chef rice cooker in the microwave and in 20 min dinner is ready. Perhaps a salad tossed up as well would go well with it.
I am also in research to discover some different "egg on top" recipes. More on that once I find some....
