Well, this is a little late, wouldn’t you say?
The weekend really got away from me, and all of a sudden, it is Wednesday.
Friday evening, my husband and I attended a rehearsal for one of our former students. He isn’t just any former student, but our sweet Mario, the one my children lovingly call, “Bubba.” He is fantastic, and we are so proud of him!
Shane was honored to perform the wedding, and Mario’s bride is a lovely young woman. We are very happy for both of them!
Saturday was insane. Reese had a ballgame about 30 minutes north at 11 am. After the game, we rushed home to get everyone except for Abby ready for the five o’clock wedding. A few minutes after 2 pm, we were headed back north for Abby’s three o’clock game. We were a sight to see, with the girls in pretty dresses and Shane in his suit. Ha! We managed to get Shane back to the church a little after four, and then it was a flurry of activity to get Cam dropped off with my inlaws, and Abby ready for the wedding. We slid back into the church with about fifteen minutes to spare. Whew!
I neglected to take pictures this week, mainly because our meals weren’t exactly photo-worthy. It was a lot of sautéed veggies, eggs, spinach, fruit, cashews, and various meat.
We knew the wedding food would be hard to navigate doing this Whole30. However, we did the best we could. In situations like this, we chose people over food. There are no food allergies that we know of, so refusing to eat in a setting such as this was just unthinkable to us. We also let the girls have cake at both the wedding and the birthday party that we went to after the wedding reception was over. This is funny, though, because they could barely eat their cake at the party; not because they were full, but because the sugar had really done a number on them. It was an excellent teaching opportunity and learning experience for them. Their eyes were opened to what sugar can do to your body. If you are eating sugar a lot, you might not notice the brain fog, fatigue, and stomachache, but it is still effecting your body. The girls were blown away and excited at the same time, because they really, “got it.”
Sunday was another busy day, without much downtime, so as you can see, nothing has been posted. I apologize for missing the $5 Challenges; blogging just wasn’t feasible this weekend, or even on Monday.
Tuesday we started back to CC, which is a good thing. The kids had a great time, and it was nice to really get back into our routine.
As far as the Whole30 is going, we are trucking along. Today is Day 16. I still haven’t had much of an appetite. I’ve been making myself eat without any problem, but I’m just not very hungry, especially in the morning. It’s weird. The next hurdle will be our weekend at a homeschool conference and then the Super Bowl party next month.
