My Life

Soccer, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Running, Piano, more Soccer! This is my life right now. I have actually done a little spring project that I haven't even had time to post about yet. Someday things will calm down and I will get back to my blog. :)  

Yesterday my son signed up for the 2013 Boy Scout National Jamboree. If you're not familiar with it, it is like the Super Bowl of scouting. Its a summer camp that is held every 4 years (except this time, it's only 3 years after the last one, which was held in 2010 to accommodate the scouting 100th anniversary!) He has wanted to go ever since he first heard about "Jambo" (the Boy Scout slang for Jamboree) probably when he was 9 or 10.  He was even more convinced when older boys from his troop went in 2010 and came back telling stories about all the cool things they did. It's basically Boy Scout Heaven.

Mom on the other hand, is alternating between "Ohmygosh! What did I just sign him up for?? He's too young to go halfway across the country for 2 weeks!" and "It will be the experience of a lifetime!" Oh well, at least I have a year and a half to get used to the idea!

On another note, the eMeals plan is getting off to a pretty good start. I'm not giving it 5 stars just yet. What I did for the first week was take recipes from the previous and current weeks, and kind of combined things. I know that my kids definitely won't eat some of the things on the menus, so I did a little re-arranging. I have to say the biggest relief is not having to worry about going to the store every other day and constantly wondering what to make for supper!

My goal for this week is to get my spring banner pictures (spoiler!) off my camera and onto the blog...stay tuned!
