Planning last week of summer

Well, technically summer ends in late September, but this is for us before we start school. In years past we’ve started when Kevin’s college starts, and that is mid-to-late August, but I just wasn’t ready. Growing up in New England, we began school on the Wednesday after Labor Day and I’m just feeling it like that this year. So we have 1 1/2 more weeks of summer! And besides, my sweet daughter and her husband are coming to visit this week-end and I need to make sure we are all ready for the visit.

BUT that doesn’t mean it’s vacation time!

  • I thought all my planning was finished for school 2 weeks ago, but there have been a few changes and I need to re-adjust my planning and get that finished.
  • I need to make sure that the trim is all finished on my kitchen so that little Re-Do is all done.
  • I’m super behind on laundry and cleaning and need to get all caught up.
  • I’m getting ready for a 30 Jump Start for my health starting Sept 1.
  • I need to make a planner that will meet my needs for the coming year.
  • I need to make a dry erase scheduler for everyone’s different work/driving schedules.
  • I need to plan and prepare lunches for my working family members to save them $$.
  • I need to get my blogging back on course to plan out 3-4 posts per week.
  • I need to get my lawn mower fixed so the boys and I can get our yard totally cleaned and ready for the fall.

So, the last full week before school starts will be a full week indeed. In the meantime, here is my Menu Plan for the coming week. And please feel free to download my FREE Month at a Glance menu planner, my Weekly Menu Planner and my new Snacks planner. All are fully editable on your computer!

Thursday worship

sunrise worship at the river

My worship time this morning at the river was quiet and still. No big spiritual high or huge revelations. Just a time of quiet with the Lord and meditating on the bigness of God and on the blood that purchased my salvation. The passages I focused on were Ps 107 and Ps 104. I pray . . . →Read More:

Why are they called wisdom teeth?

who said wisdom teeth were wise?

My youngest daughter needs to have her wisdom teeth out. Why in the world are they called wisdom teeth? They almost always have to come out. They seldom come in straight or uncomplicatedly. If they aren’t removed, they’ll often cause complications later on as it is so hard to floss around or brush them well . . . →Read More:
