What's for Dinner?

I'm feeling pretty good today because it is 11:00 a.m. and I already know what we are having for dinner! Most days it doesn't work quite like this at my house. Usually around 3:30 I start looking through the cupboards to see what we can throw together. I call Bruce a lot and have him stop by the grocery store on the way home from work to get a few things. We end up having our "regulars quite a bit: tacos, taco soup, french dip sandwiches, sweet and sour chicken, pizza, and I admit it..cold cereal or oatmeal!

I decided to be more organized and try some type of meal planning. I've planned out meals weeks at a time before and then done one big shopping trip but for some reason it didn't work too well. Does anyone have a marvelous way they plan out menus? Or does anyone actually plan out menus?

I found this idea at littlenannygoat that you should check it out. If only I could think of 30 meals that my family will actually eat!

Calling all Heroes!

All of the little heroes!

The Superman mask was a little freaky sometimes!

Our cousin the cute little Batgirl

Carter is getting ready for cake!

Holy Heroes Batman! Saturday was C-mans birthday and we had "Super-Hero Training." It was lots of fun and kids in costumes are the cutest! Happy Birthday Spidey!

They grow up this fast?

C-Man posing for his "first day of pre-school" picture!

The best shot I could get! The training wheels are pushed all the way up off the ground.

C-man has been riding this little bike now for a few summers and has basically mastered as much as you can master on a bike this size with training wheels. He was even starting to pop wheelies! He decided that he would try no training wheels about a week ago. Bruce took of the little training wheels and we walked up to the church parking lot. Bruce ran behind him and he just did it! He didn't fall or anything. He had a few wobbles and needed help on take-offs, but he pretty much just did it! A few days later I told him to go out and start practicing and I would get my shoes and be right out. Before I got out I saw him through the window riding just fine. He just taught himself to start out by himself!

On Wednesday he had his first day of pre-school! He was so excited he woke up at 2:00 a.m. and wanted to know if he was later for school yet! This kid has been watching the elementary bus stop out our front window since he was 2. One day when he was younger he came crying to me. I asked what was wrong and he said "Mom, the bus left me!" The whole family was so excited for C-man's big day at school. Miss Becky is in for a great year!
