This summer is flying by and we’ve been so busy lately, and that seems to make time move even faster. I’ve been creating one pan meals on a rotation every single day to make my life easier.
Between Kayla working nearly everyday, and me trying to get everything ready for our home school room, and lessons planned out for the year, it’s just been crazy, and I look for every opportunity to cut out the unnecessary parts; like spending all evening in the kitchen cooking and cleaning up.
