Menu Plan: Mid-July???



Last week, I told you that we were in the midst of a week of craziness. When that post was published? That was totally true. But, in His typical fashion, God threw us a curveball and forced some rest upon us. :)


Wednesday afternoon, my two older children fell asleep. FELL ASLEEP. For hours! Now, that’s just odd. They typically rest and read and sprawl and chill, but they don’t sleep mid-afternoon. I assumed a week full of Summer Spirit, swimming, and other activities had just wiped them out.


A. woke, stumbled to the bathroom, then out to the couch, and crashed out again. I was able to finally rouse him about 6PM and planned to feed him fast and get him out the door to karate. Something made me take pause, however, and I took his temperature.




So we took C’s temperature.




And then G.






It was not a big deal and we totally managed and treated the virus at home. They’re all fine now and no one’s the worse for wear. By necessity, however, we scrapped Thursday and Friday’s activities.


Ah, well… c’est la vie! Sometimes you gotta roll with the punches, right?


We stuck pretty close to the menu plan, but my husband did do an emergency lunch-hour run for Gatorade, yogurt, and apple sauce to get us through the worst of the (104+) fevers and blistered throats.


Everyone’s healthy for the moment, and here’s what we’re hoping will hit the table all this week!
