Challenge Report (or, I am a failure)

Okay, I failed.
I think we ate out more this past week than we ever have, which was strange. 
I was fine on Monday, the busiest of days.  We had homemade pizza!
Then Tuesday came and we were running late again and ended up
eating Chinese one night, and one lunch...
Chick-Fil-A one breakfast, trying a new local Mexican joint another,
and then on Friday we were in Memphis so the
challenge couldn't even work and we of course ate both lunch and dinner.
Oh well.
I swear we NEVER eat out like this.  
I told the kids this next week the challenge would be in full swing so not to even ask.

On the bright side today was the kids' "graduation" from science classes at the 4H center.
They are so sad that the classes are over.  Emily's class did a soil study where they collected information for UA's County Extension office.  (The rock climbing and canoeing was a bonus!)
The data will be used in a study for the entire state so she was a little proud.  She also learned how to type blood, which I thought was pretty cool.
Max got to learn more about bats (they were studying habitats this year.)  He LOVES bats so that was a big hit also.  I've been so impressed with the classes out there.  They also do summer camps which are really fun!  Check out your local 4H offices!

Oh I hear ya on the eating out. It seems like every time I intend to stop our nasty fast food habit, something thwarts my plans. Maybe some reverse psychology is in order, plan to eat out...no, that'd be too easy to succumb to...

Maybe if you challenge yourself to eat out, you will end up eating in.

Think that's a good idea, Unknown Mami! Probably would work! ;)

No need to beat yourself up about it. It happens to the best of us. We live busy lives and its not always easy to drive the kids around and be in front of the stove at the same time. These science classes sound great. I wish they had them where I live!

My husband was in 4H. I'll probably look into getting our kids in it when they're a bit older. They have so many good programs!

I have to admit I'm a bit jealous...we haven't eaten out in months. MONTHS! We're due for a dinner or lunch or breakfast out! I get so tired of cooking three times a day. I run out of good food ideas.
