Last week was a busy one, Monday was labor day we picked our first watermelon from the garden and it really didn't have much flavor so we were just going to toss it and then we had a better idea;
The boys thought it was delicious! Now I cant cut a watermelon in the kitchen without them underfoot!
We also spent alot of time looking at furniture, we were thinking that we wanted a new bedroom set but we decided that we would wait until just a little longer to make the big purchase.

Wednesday was Haileys first soccer game they won 2-1. There was one girl that scored both goals, she is a friend of ours cousin so that was pretty cool, it would have been cooler if it was Hailey but maybe next game.

This weekend we are headed to the fair!


Menu 8/5-8/11

We are still living the vegetarian/vegan lifestyle; we are only eating 1 serving of a meal and eating leftovers, we use to cook a new meal everyday and then have a CORN (clean out the refrigerator night) every week, well financially that wasn't really working out, and after eating raw for 10 days and only having salads, eating leftovers are not so bad. So now we are cooking 2-3 meals a week and still having a corn buffet one day. Here is our menu for next week,

breakfast is always a smoothie sometimes with a muffin and lunch is always raw (a salad or sliced veggies and hummus) Hailey eats at school, snacks are fruit and nut mix, Lara bars, and fresh fruits and veggies;

8/5 grilled steaks, (ok so this isnt vegetarian AT ALL, but its a holiday) grilled zucchini, and macaroni salad
8/6 Veggie Chimichangas, green salad and fruit
8/7 Spinach pasta, Texas toast, salad
8/8 Grilled fish (rainbow trout free from our friends fishing trip) zucchini, fruit
8/9 veggie chimichangas mixed fruit
8/10 spinach pasta, fruit, and zucchini
8/11 CORN buffet


Long busy days

Hailey made the soccer team! She was so excited but it will make for a very busy month and a half. She has practice everyday from 3-5 and on Friday practice at 6AM, which means she has to be up at 430am! and then 2 games a week on top of all that, she has had homework everyday (which was no surprise to us) by the time she is done with that, her shower and dinner it is already about 8pm, sometimes even later. Last year her bed time was 930, but this year we moved it to 9 just until she gets into a groove. Tonight though I think we will have her go @8 depending on what her Utah Studies homework looks like.

Liz is a whole 'nother type of busy... She too gets up at 430am and is out the door by 5am (she gets ready really fast) by the time she works, and goes to the gym she gets home at about 720pm!

So pretty much its just me and the boys all day, when every one gets home it is a mad rush of how was your day? what did you do?we have to squeeze everything in by 10 when the house shuts down... We all cant wait for the weekends, when we can try to sleep in, and spend some time together!
