We are happy to be closing October out (along with all that sugar that accompanies the last day of the month!) and welcome wholesome meals back into our daily lives. This week is especially crazy as my 8-year old fractured his leg over the weekend in a freak accident and besides a full cast from his thigh to his chubby toes, he is wheelchair bound and being home schooled for the rest of the semester. To say my life as a mom of 3 other healthy kids, (with accompanying full time social and sports schedules,) is busy would be an understatement. Using my crock pot most days since the accident has truly been a welcome relief as I know that at least dinner isn’t something to stress about in between chair rides to the doctor, turning in homework or even the chore of helping a 70# kid to the restroom multiple times a day. Phew!
