Back to School Dry Run - And a New Meal Plan

Seriously?  Fall is closer than I'd like.
I looked up the other day and realized our summer break is almost over.  Yikes!!!!  How in the world did that happen?  So, now we're thinking back to school... 

This week our schedule slightly resembles the school year.  The girls have a three day dance camp (Pinkalicious Princess Dance Camp - seriously, does it get any better if you're a little girl?)  Both of them will be out of the house for a two hour block, which is close to our school year schedule because Miss M's kindergarten class will be a similar length.  Mr. A and I have a chance to practice having a little time just the two of us.  I think it's been kind of hard on him to constantly have his sisters vying for attention, even though he's loved having them around to play at the same time.  I have resolved that this week, I will I will just enjoy my time alone with him rather than doing housework. 

Unfortunately, we do have to spend some time grocery shopping today.  Since I've started meal planning my trips to the grocery store are faster because they're focused (and I make a lot fewer of them because I'm better prepared in general).  Now that I'm also trying to organize my list by category I'm practically zooming through the store!  So, while I don't get to spend the whole two hours playing with Mr. A, I should still have time to do something fun just with him. 

The Week at a Glance page is updated with a new meal plan!

*If you're unfamiliar with Pinkalicious and you have a little girl in your world, you must live in a cave.  Ha Ha!  Just kidding.  Seriously though, this newish series of picture books has everything little girls love.   These are our favorites.
