This past week started with the girls finishing their games strong. My middle little's team took first place in their tournament, and finished first in their division in the league, and were highest scoring. So couch, Daddy, bought them all ice cream.
Then I heard the news about Orlando, the shooting at the night club, there was a shooting earlier in the week of a singer, then later in the week the little boy who was drowned by an alligator in a freak accident. Such sad sad news. It was a heartbreaking week. The rest of the week's pictures seem trivial in the light of all of that. But we live, we carry on, and carry those in pain in our prayers.
Pixie wanted to sleep in the attic. So she made us a little bed, and in the morning my body felt as old as it is. But look how cute?
I made a huge pot of pho, so noodles for days around here. No one complained.
Are you on Instagram? Would love to see you there!
Well, it's that time of year where I'm just done with lunch packing. I mean I know I'll be packing lunches throughout the summer also, but the idea of school lunches. I'm just done. I'm over it. I mean, my kids can pack their own and they do at times. But I usually pack lunches because I ENJOY it. Just like I enjoy being in the kitchen and cooking. But sometimes I get in a rut, or summer calls and that's it. So, I'm still packing lunches but they just get more interesting as we head towards the finish line. Anyone else feel that way? We're almost there folks, keep swimming. The finish line is near. By the time this post goes live the kids will have had their last day of school! YAY!

Per request by my youngest:
Plain Greek yogurt
There has been a lot of soccer played around here lately, and the weather has been gorgeous. We've had some hot days but overall it's been nice. So sushi, steak, wedding dress, baking, soccer, and more soccer. Here's a little look into our week last week.
Hello, my name is Katherine and I save packaging. I've gotten much better at it. But what I do save ends up being used for these darn field trips that require a disposable lunch! Good thing I had a couple saved containers.
These lunches are almost all orange, that wasn't planned. it was just what I had to pack. Tortilla with pizza sauce and cheese
This Greek Inspired Chickpea Salad can be served as a side dish, over salad, or as a main dish with some pita bread. It's so easy to make kids who are good with a knife can prepare it on their own. If I use Feta cheese I usually add that a little before serving. I just prefer it that way.
