March began and the weather eased up for a bit, the pictures above outdoors was the first semi-warm(ish) day we had. March was a blur, JH finished his Kindergarten math and phonics programs, so we moved up to first grade, it is no surprise those are his favorite subjects.
March is all about Saint Patrick's day for this over half Irish family, we had family over for lunch and dinner. Above is the Guinness Beef Stew we made, the traditional decorations and green carnations, and the bakery cookies Pete surprised the boys with.
I also began a new system for our house, above is one of JH's chores (folding towels, napkins, and wash cloths), along with a new daily schedule for both learning at home, and running the house type stuff. A month into it I can say confidently that is was a good decision. We had been kind of flying by the seat of our pants while I had morning sickness and that isn't good for anyone.
After a long time of being really budget wise in terms of groceries etc. I began to super-slack on this and now I am trying to get back to a workable budget for food/household supplies. We tracked our grocery expenses for a few months and realized we were spending well over 1K a month for four people (NOT COOL AT ALL) To be continued......
