My Weekly Menu- July 2nd (Preparing for Baby Jones)

Hey everyone!!

I hope you all have had a great week last week! Our week was packed full of fun. We went on a mini vacation to Hopkinsville, KY. It was so refreshing to get away and recharge with some awesome people. We also got a chance to see our sweet little bun in the oven. :)

She is growing great at 4lbs 3oz and she has lots of hair (as a Momma it just excites me for all of the cute little bows I see in her future). With only 4 more weeks for me to get this house in order and ready for our new addition, I am starting to feel the pressure. So this week begins the fun and crazy process of reorganizing closets, washing clothes, putting her bed and bassinet together, and doing some "spring" cleaning cough...cough that I didn't do in the spring. :)

Along with us adding a new sweet baby to our home, we will be starting a new chapter of homeschooling! We will have Trey in 3rd grade and unofficially Ben and Emma doing some preschool work. :) So I am also working on getting our school area all organized and ready to start the year off.

And of course, I can't forget that this is 4th of July week!! :) We traditionally go to as many firework shows as possible and cook out with our family. So this week is going to be a fun one!
