A Whirlwind Day!

Well, big day today in our house.

I had the kitchen rocking, spitting out a ton of things to prepare us for the busy week ahead.  Needing to pack lunches for 5 and supper for 9 each night takes organization.

Breakfast choices:

Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal and Cookie Dough Baked Oatmeal from here

I also made some blazing beet juice for Day 1 of the 21 Day Juicing Challenge. A yummy juice of beets, greens, garlic, celery, ginger and green apple.  Hoping it will help roaring runner get rid of his cold.

Today also marked the beginning of "harvest" as the combines hit the wheat field.  I drove truck for awhile after taking supper out as our son had soccer.  I try so hard to ensure the kids can be part of sports, etc. but it does mean spreading myself a bit thin at times.

It does feel like fall is in the air with the cooler temps here in the Canadian Prairies.  Sunset comes sooner than I would like.

And there is nothing that marks the beginning of fall better than the return to school.  Today is my last day of NO SCHEDULE.  I know routine is good, but I just feel overwhelmed when things are so busy.  School starts for me tomorrow.  The kids return Wed and Thurs.  It is something that NEVER get easier- I enjoy having my kids around.

Needed to say goodbye to our oldest who left for university this afternoon.  I am so thankful he is happy to return.  It is way better than the reluctant way I was.  I just miss him so darn much!  The 4 months he has been home seem to have flown by.

Hope your long weekend was wonderful.  Wish me luck tomorrow!

p.s. don't judge my picture taking too harshly- a girl can only do so much with an iphone and no creativity
