Menu Plan Monday - Week of May 1, 2016

Tulips!  Red ones - we have these growing in our yard right now.  They're so pretty!

Our children turn 11 this week! 

It's so strange to me that my children are this old!  My son has been doing his own laundry and my daughter has been helping make dinner often.  I'm feeling really blessed. 

My parents are arriving this week to stay for a month.  I'm really excited!  My parents are in their 80's now and I realize that many people in their 80's are not as healthy and mobile as my parents are.  We truly treasure this time with them.
