Nestle Family New School Year Resolution {Nook Giveaway}

We are well into the new school year and I am happy to report that things are going well!  My youngest is finally adjusted to her new school and my oldest is bring home excellent grades.  So, how’s Mom doing?

Last month, Nestle Family challenged me to create and stick to a Happy New School Year Resolution.  I decided that I would do my best to “provide my family with well planned and balanced brain-food.”  My grade?


Not too shabby.  My youngest has been loving her new snacks (especially the yogurt covered raisins) and she has even tried eggplant….major breakthrough!  I still need to get better at planning a variety of lunchtime foods, but I am working on it.  How are you doing with your resolution?

    my resolution or goal was to “do school” two times a week with my preschooler at home for an hour or so each time… so far we have stuck to it but am definately feeling our excitement and interest beginning to wane.
