Yep, both Asa and Justus are at camp this week. This means I’ll need to try and remember to make less food for each meal. It is when my 14 and 17 year olds are gone that I realize just how much food the two of them eat. Wow.
Speaking of camp, Matt and I (and the two younger boys) will also be heading that way a week from today. Since church camp is such a huge part of our kids’ lives, Matt and I really want to be a part of it with them. We’ll be there for two weeks in a row – helping in the kitchen during a junior high session, and team-teaching a Bible class during a senior high session. Since we just got back from a week long trip, and I am still playing catch-up…I am not even close to being ready to be gone again for two weeks. I’ve decided it just doesn’t matter. Ready or not, I can’t wait to be there. After all, God didn’t call me to go and ask me to get all my ducks in a row. He just said, “Go.” The to-do list will take care of itself.
(That was me speaking truth to myself, and giving myself a much needed chill pill, pep talk, and kick in the pants.)
Easy Noodle Stir Fry is a perfect way to eat all the yummy summer veggies available right now. :)
For this week, while I
work really hard to get ready to go totally chill out and surrender all worries about everything I need to do, here are the simple meals we’ll be eating:
Sunday, June 29
Easy breakfast casserole, fresh peaches
Hearty green bean casserole (from Oh, For Real), tossed salad, seven minute strawberry ice cream
Grilled burgers, watermelon, pickles, potato salad
Friday and Saturday – grabbing the boys from camp to head to a short but sweet family reunion. Nothing like adding more traveling and packing and laundry and FUN to life before heading to camp for two weeks, right?
Have any fun plans coming up in July?
