Sausage Tortellini Soup

10 Mar

There is nothing more comforting on a cold winter’s day than a hearty bowl of soup. I have been making this for two decades and it is still a family favorite. I am such a pinch of this and a dash of that kinda cook. So at the request of my family and friends I have written my recipe and I am so happy to share it with you all!

Chicken Enchilada Soup

29 Oct

  The crisp cool air finds eager bellies gathered around the table warming up to steaming bowls of soup. Somehow the changing of season elicits a longing to linger around the table and I find a hearty soup fits in keeping the mood.

I love that this soup takes no time to put together. It truly is a fix it and forget it meal.  Best part is that it is equally loved by my whole family!

Summer Vacation is Over…..

4 Aug

One of the reasons I love homeschooling is that it offers us limitless flexibility in our schedule.  I noticed a few weeks ago that my kids were starting to get restless-which means that they stop finding productive or fun things to do and instead come up with new and creative ways to annoy one another (anyone relate, lol?).  It was time.  Starting now also gives us an opportunity to get a head start and take some time off in the Fall and do some fun field trips with less of a crowd.

I am not one to prepare and plan ahead of time (you can read about that here), I am forever in a last minute hustle, I am getting better, but still. 

So after a week of preparations here we are at yet another first day of school!

Who says you need to sit at a desk to learn?  The couch is perfect place to snuggle and read.

So, how do they REALLY feel about the first day of school?  Giddy with goofiness ;)  It's going to be a great year!

Three hours and then we were free to enjoy the beautiful summer day. We rounded off the day with breakfast for dinner and a trip through the sprinklers. A wonderful day indeed!

When does school start for you?  Any tips or tricks in making your day run smoother? I would love to hear from home and public school families….because both are awesome!  

Thanks for sharing in our day!
