We are starting to gear up for the littles’ first day back to school and while they both have enjoyed their extended summer (89 days!!), I think everyone is ready for some routine back in our schedule.
Have you read this amazing piece about the back-to-school supplies that your child REALLY needs? Amazing stuff. Even if you are tempted to skip over it because you don’t have school age children, it’s worth your 5 minutes.
We are enjoying the cooler days here in Virginia, but still love it when the sun hits our shoulders and warms up the afternoon hours. We have been so impressed by our surroundings in the new place and we were simply blown away by this double rainbow that appeared after a full day of rain.
We have been corralling the days we have left before Middle School and 3rd grade swallow up our schedules. Grilling out, doing painting projects on the deck and lots of popsicles. How great do these popsicles look, recipe courtesy of eMeals (my favorite meal planning tool)
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate milk
- 1/2 cup hazelnut spread
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix the chocolate milk and hazelnut spread together until well blended. Choose your favorite popsicle mold and fill to the rim and freeze overnight.
Just in time for school, eMeals is offering 20% off their plans (which makes each month of recipes less than $4.00!) When you purchase a subscription, you also get a free Back to School Recipes Download, with ten great recipes and a matching shopping list.
My favorite thing about this summer definitely involved moving into our new home! We are realizing that our lazy summer days are rapidly disappearing and I am personally so very excited about experiencing a proper Autumn again after six years without a climate that has four seasons! What was your favorite thing about this summer?
