As you've probably noticed, I've not been around much lately. Our family has been tremendously busy. We've had lots of commitments, a full schedule, and our regular daily homeschooling.
We've also been dealing with my youngest son having absence seizures. We even had our first hospital stay with him last month. He had to have a 24-hour EEG. The Lord truly blessed my son with a calm and settled spirit during the stay. (Which was great considering he was hooked up to about 25 wires for over a day!) The test result confirmed that he is having many absence seizures throughout the day. We've had a change in medication, and are now trying to work through that.
With all that, I think I need some time off from blogging to focus on my family. It's hard for me to make this decision, but I think the Lord has been leading me to this.
I will miss it that I know, but if the Lord leads, I'll hopefully be back at some point. Praying that all of you will take care!

Well, I'm ready to get back into my meal planning this week. I've taken off several weeks from it because of super busyness. We've had a birthday party, classes, the Cincinnati Homeschool Conference, and a hospital stay all last month. Plus, of course, our regular homeschool schedule. I'm looking forward to a less busy month. We're finishing out this school year in the next couple of weeks. So there's lots of excitement around this house! :) Countdown has begun...
Here's our meal plans:
Breakfast: Leftovers, Cereal & fruit x 2, Egg & Toast with fruit, Gluten free pancakes, Sausage gravy & biscuits, granola bars with fruit & yogurt
Lunch: Turkey sandwiches with baked chips & fruit salad, Grilled cheese & carrots, rice bowls with salsa & chips, Chef Salad with garlic toast, Chicken Salad sandwiches & grapes, Roast Beef & Cheddar sandwiches with pretzel chips, out
Monday: CFA Kid's Night
Tuesday: Steak Fajitas with guacamole, lettuce, salsa and Spanish rice
Wednesday: Sandwiches & cold veggies, baked chips
Thursday: Grilled BBQ chicken with corn on the cob
Friday: Out for a family birthday dinner
Saturday: Chicken Casserole with mashed potatoes and broccoli
Dessert: Cheesecake, fruit & ice cream
