Ch-ch-ch Changes

We're all about change these days in the Sweet Pea home.

R's got his first loose tooth (*finally*--my late-tooth-bloomer has patiently watched every. single. friend. lose teeth), and for some reason this is hitting me with a lot of "whoa, he really isn't little any more." So we're officially on Tooth Watch 2010.

Add to the tooth drama, lots of house selling and house hunting drama. We've sold our house and though this move will keep us within the same school system rather than take us across several states, the drama is that SPH and I are just not sure which home, let's call them A and B, to choose. Even as I type, I have the pictures, stats and realtor remark sheets on A and B to my immediate side. I'm thinking B will win out, but either way we have got to choose quickly or we'll be hitting up friends for a place to stay...(you've been warned!)

With all this change and drama, I think G has the right idea...go to the playground, consume yourself with joy and just enjoy life:

Thanks G, for keeping things in perspective!

With our upcoming move, I've been trying to incorporate as many pantry/freezer items into our weekly meals as possible, just to winnow down our food supply before the move.

Our meals for the week:
Vegetable Lasagna, Baked Apples
Tomato/Pizza Soup (perfect for a rainy day like tomorrow)
Asian Salmon Burgers, Asian Peanutty Noodles
Olive Olive Enchiladas
Seared Scallops, Green Beans, Berries

Have a great week!

PS--Did anyone catch the front page of the Columbus Dispatch this AM?

Awesome pictures! He cracks me up. And I agree on the school lunches. Rachel's school tries to do whole grains and low fat meat choices as much as possible, but the menu still reads like "turkey hot dog on whole grain bun with baked french fries" The fruit and veggies selections are almost always canned.

Can't wait to hear what house you choose. Hopefully the Goodys can come check it out this football season.

I'm hoping to take the changes from Granville, learn from them, and present some options for our school district. We'll see.

Deep, we would LOVE a visit!
