Healthy Seasonal Meal Plan Week 4

I’m in a bit of shock because it’s my kids’ last week of school this week.  It’s the earliest they’ve ever gotten out, but they go back by mid-August.  I have no idea what happened to kids getting out mid-June and going back after Labor Day and you’d think I’d be used to it by now.

I’m not!

My youngest graduates from 8th grade and will join his brother in high school next year, which leaves me feeling amazed, proud, excited, and sad.  Whenever their teenage antics start to drive me crazy, I remind myself that they only have a few short years left here at home before they’re off to college and that I need to savor these years.

Everyone always says that kids grow up fast, and it’s completely true.

I chose a lot of comfort food for this week’s meal plan…I guess I really need it?  I hope you enjoy it and have a great weekend!
