Back to School

August 24, 2015

Other than this:


…we’re getting back into the swing of things over here.  Lila has had a full week of school…Ryan and I have both taught a few classes.  It always takes a while to adjust to a new semester’s schedule, but we’re getting there.

We’ve been having some easy meals, like chili:


…which we ate on the floor since we were still without a table.  Smile

Chicken tacos after class:



…made with chicken that we made in a stove-top smoker that my parents got us for Christmas last year.  We’ve used it a few times over the past month and really love it—I’m glad we decided to keep it when we were paring down our kitchen stuff!

In other news, Lila had her first ballet class of the year, at a new studio that we were able to walk to (!!!)


She’s so much bigger this year!

On Friday night, we put a few more miles on the stroller and walked downtown to a food truck festival for gourmet sandwiches and ice cream:



Finally, out of nowhere, Lila started feeling pretty bad on Saturday afternoon—she had a bit of a fever and a sore throat.  Sad smile  She seems to be doing much better today, but she has no voice at all…which has been kind of nice.  Winking smile  She’s in that phase where everything is a “Why?” so getting a break from that is okay by me.  

Still, I do want her back to 100%…so I made this chicken noodle soup in the slow cooker for dinner tonight:


I guess we’ll see tomorrow if she regains her voice.

    I’m totally calling this age the age of 200 questions. I love the curiosity, but it sure makes drives in the car feel very long haha. Glad you guys are loving your new home. Hope she feels better
