    Ok, we are all crazy busy with homeschool, activities, errands, and being Moms, Dads, Wives, Husbands, Partners, caregivers, etc.
    And despite our vows to ourselves to eat healthy, etc. we do have to eat out sometimes. Things happen.
    Hot weather, running late, broken oven, sickness or just plain old TOO FREAKING TIRED!

    At our house, we try to eat lunch out only once on weekends and we do pizza 1 night a week-usually Sunday so Mom has little or no dishes to start her Monday with. Sometimes, we end up doing lunch out the whole weekend.

    The rest of the week, 95% of the year..... I do cook and we don't do lunch out or order in unless it is a work day AND one of my boys birthdays. Then we order whatever they want.

    The Summer is harder. Heat kills me, despite having AC's.... I hate cooking when it is HOT. I hate heating up the house. And while my boys and I could do with salad and something grilled....hubby is a hearty meat and potatoes kind of guy and only green thing he should HAVE to eat it green Jello. UGH.

    All I have to say is thank goodness for extra AC we put in kitchen, thank goodness for investing in a grill that has a separate burner, thank goodness for whomever came up with the idea of a Crock-Pot! Bless their hearts!
    Otherwise, I could easily fall into just grab something fast food on the way home honey every single night.

    How often do you eat out each week? Could be fast food, sit down, stand up, order in, whatever... consider food you or a family member did not prepare and that you paid $$ for.....

    When we moved to our current state we decided to homeschool our oldest. We were already homeschooling our youngest and felt she wouldn't thrive in the public school system here. We started out with traditional homeschool curriculum. It was an epic failure for many, many reasons. Ultimately she wanted an outside ...

    Summer "officially" starts next weekend! School is out for many but I have also noticed that a lot of families are still schooling! Great for them!

    We finished the end of May, boys had a week of June school still but pushed through so they could be done early!
    Now we are done until August! Yay for them and us! This Mama needs a break!!

    We school what I consider year-round but do take a 6-8 week break in Summer to enjoy Summer, boys get to visit Grandparents for a few weeks, we have our family vacation and it just gives us a little time.
    We still do plenty of educational stuff! Visit the museums, our beach trip will be to the military fort and the science aquarium plus we participate in the Library program!

    So, technically....homeschooling for us does not stop.

    Are you schooling through the Summer?
