Menu Plan: June 29 - July 5
We are doing a lot of socializing this week, so many of our meals are with others. Our neighborhood has a summer picnic and barbecue each year, and this was the week for it. We ate so much there, that we just had a snack for dinner that night.
This past week was much busier than I had initially intended. I thought our church's vacation bible school was going to be in August like it had been last year. It was last week. So, we got up early each morning and headed out there, where our oldest two helped, and the younger kids were able to participate. So, our breakfasts pretty much were tossed out the window, in favor of whatever could be made and eaten quickly.
Alexander made us a really lovely dinner last week, as I ended up having to do some running around with Rich to get some errands done. Unfortunately, we have had two set backs this week. Rich's truck was leaking oil, and we knew it needed repair. We expected a $300 - 500 bill, but since we got such a good deal on it, and it was an excellent truck with the potential to run for quite some time, that didn't bother us. Except, the leaking oil was a symptom of a much bigger problem. We're still trying to decide how to handle it, but in the meantime, it's out of commission in our garage, while Rich takes one of the vans to and from work. Also, our washing machine, which had the bearings replaced not even six months before, had the bearings blow out again on Saturday night. We are not happy. 10 people in a house make a lot of laundry. So, please be praying for us and these set backs.
