This week was especially chaotic- with the end of the school year, getting ready to have kids home all day and the building of our new house, I’m ready to fall down. I guess I’m like one of those toys from the 1970’s- Weebles wobble, but they don’t fall down!
Like I said, our kids had their last day of school this week and it was a half day. Sweet Pea was so excited for the last day of school that she woke up at 5:30 am. She had plenty of time to get ready for school AND squeeze in a few games of solitaire (her latest obsession!)
Because the kiddoes will be home all Summer and they will constantly be hungry, I made a little trip to Costco to stock up! I found so many fun things! Going to Costco usually means spending over $300 on “stuff” so I try to limit my shopping trips to 2 or 3 times a year! Here’s my Costco haul…
While at Costco, I bought an abundance of paper products because I coordinated our 8th grade potluck after graduation and we expected around 300 guests, which totally freaked me out. (7th grade parents set up the potluck) All I could think about was “this is like catering a wedding reception!” With only 15 people signed up to bring a main dish, 11 for a side dish and 14 for desserts, I just knew that we weren’t going to have enough food to feed the masses.
I seriously had a chat with the good Lord above and asked him to multiply the food, just as He did in the bible with the fish and loaves of bread, and guess what?? Everyone had enough to eat, some came back for seconds and we STILL had food left. Isn’t God good??? Oh, yes He is!
Here are a few pics from the graduation potluck. Did I mention that I had the BEST team of hard working Momma’s helping to set things up? And did I mention that it was about 85 degrees in the school kitchen? These ladies were TROOPERS! Thank you Katie, Liz, Dina, Barb, Angie, Kim, Janet and Carrie!
Our local grocery store has been doing a remodel and it is looking FABULOUS!! Just had to share!
Looks like a farmer’s market to me!!
We stopped by the new house this week and the dry wall workers had been very busy! I can finally “see” what the rooms are going to look like! Hubby could “see” the rooms just from looking at it on paper, but not me! I love how it’s turning out! We did find some strange things in the house though. I found 2 big packs of corn tortillas, a microwave, a bowl of soup and some strange round bones on the floor. Weird, right?? What ever it takes for them to keep working!! I stopped by the house last night and all of the mess was perfectly cleaned up- HAPPY DANCE!!
Oh, by the way…. Before the drywall went up, we stole an idea from a friend and wrote a few of our favorite bible verses on the wood planks around the house. Sweet Pea wrote this in her closet- it’s a good thing to remember!
Next week I’m sharing another quick and easy recipe…see ya then!!
