Menu Plan August 14-20, 2016

I have to admit...I did a horrible job with the menu last week.  So many things came up and happened that it got tossed completely out the window.  I think I only cooked one night, and that's just embarrassing.  I'm really hoping that this week will be better.

Here's what's cooking at our house this week...

Sunday -- YOYO
Monday -- Portabello Mushroom Pork Tenderloin, Pasta, Veggies
Tuesday -- YOYO
Wednesday -- Dinner at Church
Thursday -- Frikadellen, Pasta, Veggies
Friday -- Grilled Chicken Sausage, Salad
Saturday -- Chicken Alfredo Skillet, Steamed Broccoli

What's on your menu this week?  How did you fair sticking to your plan last week?

2016-17 School Year Update 1

We began the 2016-17 school year two weeks ago.  The boys are both doing well, considering.  Caleb's attitude towards his work has greatly improved this year, and he doesn't give me too many problems.  Micah still requires a bit of coercing and convincing, but I'm praying he'll come around soon.  It's neat to hear Caleb encourage him to 'just get the work done'.  LOL!  I guess the past 8 years have made a mark on Caleb, and he's approaching his 9th year of homeschool with an improved attitude and work ethic.

Here are a few pictures of the past two weeks...
