What's Up Wednesday - 5.27.15

Playing along this week with fellow blogger Shay & friends. . .
What we're eating this week. . . Usually I have a menu planned for the week, but we were out of town for the Memorial Weekend holiday and just got home today.  Tomorrow is Margaret's 13th birthday and she has requested Cheeseburger Soup and Panera French Bread.  Not your typical May-day birthday meal but it's HER DAY!!!  She's choosing to take the family out for ice cream instead of another birthday dessert (she had her cake(s) at her party last night). Yea!  As for the rest of the week, I found this today and am contemplating trying it: Cauliflower Crust pizza. . .it uses a food processor, though, and mine is still in Cookeville.  We might have something else to try with it though.

What I'm reminiscing about. . .
My mom and I had a chance to go through old pictures this weekend. . .it was fun reminiscing about where we were and where we are now.  
This was Tom and I at my cousin's wedding in. . …

Glimpses of Our New Life

We don't have good answers as to *why* we move. . .just "why not?".  Moving is an adventure for me -- a way to explore different places without having to "go home" because, well, the new place IS home!!!

We are still where we were 8 weeks ago and our Cookeville house is still on the market.  I don't know if where we are is what we anticipated when we moved in mid-March or not.  The kids have adjusted exceedingly well. . .we are amazed at their resiliency.  After today, they have 7.5 schools days left!!!  This quarter has certainly flown.  I have had the opportunity to volunteer at both schools for teacher luncheons and at the middle school another day for a "special treat" day. . .basically scoop Italian Ice for grades 6-8 as they left lunch.  I didn't realize how large their school was until I went in -- I know the 6th grade has five teams of teachers!!  Their PTSA is very active so hopefully I'll get to continue to serve in some capacity…
