Menu 2016: October 10-30

Our first week back to school was really rough. I spent the first two days going through each of the kids work to see if they had kept up with their schoolwork as they should. Then I spent the rest of the week trying to get them back into routine. I knew this week would be rough but hadn't expected it to be quite as bad as it was. Sigh. Some days I really struggle with homeschooling, but I know it's our best option right now so I make myself another pot of coffee and bake up something chocolate and just keep going.

Menu 2016: October 3-9

School started again last month so I am back to the grind of lesson plans, homework, and other such craziness. We are trying a few new things this year in hopes that school will go a little smoother than last year.
Then my husband and I went on a tour of the Holy Lands (Jordan and Israel) and were gone from September 17-28. My parents took the middle two girls and one of my sisters took our son and youngest daughter. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves but are glad to be home. I will be attempting a few of the foods that we ate over the next few weeks.
