Do you know what's cookin' at your kid's school?

Last month I had the opportunity to attend the School Nutrition Association Annual National Conference in Las Vegas. At this conference I learned so much about the school lunch program nationally but also locally. Going into this event I had no idea what to expect nor did I have any idea how much I would learn.

Today I am excited to share more about our local school district nutrition team. #ad #SchoolLunch #ANC18

Well friends, have we reached that moment of summer vacation yet? You know exactly what I am talking about, that moment that you decide you will pay your children’s teachers to come back to school a few weeks early because THESE KIDS have lost their minds!

It isn’t that I mind having them home with me, it is that once they are out of their school routines, their behaviors seems to make a complete 180. Routines are so important for my kids. I am sure you can all relate.

So in these last few weeks of summer vacation “fun” I decided to stretch their creative play a bit and take some traditionally indoor toys outdoors for a few hours. Guess what…it was PERFECT!! #ad #Hotwheelsmonstertrucks

See how much fun we had with HOT WHEELS Monster Trucks from Walmart – Perfect Summer Entertainment -

Teagan is so ready for Kindergarten! We have new clothes, new shoes, a new backpack, a lunchbox and all of her supplies! READY!! Well, almost. In Teagan’s back-to-school paperwork we read over and over about how important it is to have all items labeled for the little ones. As I read this and thought about ALL OF THE THINGS that had to be labeled I got tired just thinking about it.

That’s when I remembered about our favorite label company, Mabel’s Labels. I did some research and decided that I had to get one of the Starter Label Kits to help us with this labeling job!

Today you can enter to win a FREE pack of Back To School labels for your kiddo from Mabel's Labels! #giveaway #ad #mabelslabels #BTS

Finding delicious, easy, prepared-at-home, late-night dinners is finally possible with the help of Tyson®. Our summertime schedule is crazy and frankly without my planner we would be lost. For those really crazy evenings Jeremy and I sometimes decide to get the kids in bed and then feed ourselves. Not only does this give us some time alone but with our schedule it just makes things a little easier.

For those late-night dinners, I need to have something easy to prepare at home. We do not want to run out to the fast food restaurant and I do not want to be slaving over the stove for hours to prepare our meal.

Recently, I was introduced to the Tyson® Fully Cooked Dinner and Entrée Kits can be found at Albertsons. These kits have now become our go to for easy late-night dinners! #ad
