I hope you enjoyed your Memorial Day and were able to take a minute to reflect on why we celebrate this holiday or perhaps even remember a loved on who has served or is serving our country right now, protecting our freedom and the things we hold dear. Yesterday was pretty low key for us. We hung out playing Legos and Ava received a new microscope from a friend of mine, so we played with that. It's been years (and I do mean years lol) since I've used a microscope. We looked at tons of things under the microscope and had so much fun. We had some crazy storms pass through our way yesterday. Lots of broken and uprooted trees and downed signs, lights, etc. Our power went in and out for awhile, but we were pretty lucky because we had power all afternoon and evening. Other neighborhoods right around us and even two blocks away were not so lucky. No tornado sirens went off around here, but we took shelter for a bit because it was pretty bad out. Crazy Illinois weather. We didn't make it to the pool one because the last several days have been cold and the water wasn't warm enough and the weather obviously didn't cooperate with us anyway. However it is in the upper 80's this week, so I think we will get to the pool sometime this week. Ava has games today and Thursday. I don't think the game will happen today because we had so much rain and quite a bit of flooded areas and we are due for more rain today too. So fingers crossed we have a game on Thursday at least! We are starting our first full week of Summer vacation and my schedule feels really off, but in a good way. lol So glad to not have the routine of school. I have several photos to post hopefully this week of Ava and some of her friends on the last day of school. Hopefully I'll get a blog post up this week about that. It was a fun day for sure. Anyway on to this weeks menu.
- Crockpot Chicken Casserole, mashed potatoes, and vegetable
- Cheeseburgers, tater tots, and fresh vegetables
- Taco Salad
- Sesame Chicken and rice
Have a wonderful week ahead! :)
