My menu plan isn’t getting up this week, but considering I haven’t gotten a menu posted for the past couple of weeks, I’m going to pretend like it is not a big deal!  I’m just going with the flow of the garden, meats from my freezer or on sale, and our schedule.  This means alot of stirfrys, grilling, dinner salads, dinner sandwiches and veggie omelettes for my family this time of year.  I hope everyone has been having a fun summer.  We have finally found time to wind down a bit.  Baseball, my older daughter’s soccer, orchestra, band, and camp are all done for the summer.  Whew!  Mini-kicker soccer has a couple of week’s left, but it is so laid back and fun, it’s not a big deal.

Last week the girl’s went to Ham Lake Baptist Camp.  My son attended 1st grade through 5th grade and my older daughter kindergarten though 5th grade. This was my little girls first year there.  It is a great little day camp.  If you are in the area, check it out for next year.  The campers bring their own lunches (great for the allergy kiddos) and there has always been a good option for us for snack time.  I can’t recommend this camp more.  We love it!

My hubby (1/2 marathon) and son (5K) ran the Urban Wildland this past weekend.

My husband is the guy in orange in the middle:


My son is the tall, shaggy blond blur on the left.  Woo!P1020217 (2)

I don’t have a good shot of my guys, but, look!  It’s our van!  (I don’t know who this guy is… just the van.)P1020212 (2)

My son on the left looking like a crabby pants (I’m so proud).  You can tell he thinks running is just so fun!  (Just kidding, buddy – I’m sure you are focused on your running strategy… or something…)IMG_3411
