Weekly Menu Plan {3 June}

It's been a hectic past three weeks. We enjoyed caring for the adorable little two year old, although, mercy, it made me realize how much my own children don't need me. Now you know I don't really mean they don't actually need me, but wow, no more diapers, no more nap-times, no more cutting up their peanut butter and jam into little pieces so they don't choke, etc., etc. It seems like it was just yesterday (sniff, sniff). They all helped so much with the little guy. They really did a great job with him, plus we had some fantastic discussions regarding parenting. The college student friend who was staying with us is no longer here, so today it was just us for the first time in three weeks. 

I am officially declaring it summer for us! We still have some schoolwork to do, but it will be relaxed. Today Ava and I picked up 49 books from the library that were on hold (they held them in two bins behind the desk instead putting them on the regular "hold" shelf, haha!) for our summer reading and we are planning lots of time in the sunshine. 

In the meantime, here is the menu plan for this week (super frugal, eat from the pantry/freezer edition):

Monday - Leftovers

Tuesday - Vegetable soup, cornbread

Wednesday - Peanut butter and jam sandwiches

Thursday - White bean and ham soup

Friday - Grilled cheese sandwiches

Saturday - We have several party invitations!

Sunday - Pasta with marinara sauce

I am continuing to pray for everyone in Oklahoma who has been through such heartache lately due to the tornadoes, as well as those in the wildfire areas in California and New Mexico. There are so many things to keep us on our knees, eh? xo
