Menu Plan Monday

I know, I know. I slacked off last week. We had a busy week in homeschool. Tuesday we went to the park with our co- op & on Friday we went orange picking. We had a blast! Here’s Thing 2 picking his first orange.

And Thing 3 decided picking was a waste of time.

My Things came home ready to devour the fruit of their labor. We had a great day!
