    It’s very thoughtful of you to share your recipes! Meal planning takes a lot of time for me and I can use your plan for ideas and make quick adjustments for my family’s needs. I’ll be trying it for August. Thank you very much Erica!

    Thanks so much for the wonderful recipes Erica – so very helpful. I wrote a post recently that may be useful for your readers – cooking tips for alleviating the stress of dinner time –

    Thank-you so much. This will make my
    Day as a mother of ten children so much easier.

    Thank you many times over for doing the monthly meal planner. Can’t tell you how much it helps me get through some tough decision making of “what’s for dinner.”
    It’s a life saver!

    Thank you for sharing your meal plan! Do you follow this plan strictly and just go to Costco or something at the beginning of the month to get everything? Or do you switch meals around based on what’s on sale a particular week? What do you do with leftovers?

    Thank you so much for sharing this meal plan! I just recently found your blog and I am in LOVE!! I will be homeschooling my 4 year old starting this year, and your fabulous curriculum has me feeling really prepared. Thank you for blessing our family!

    Great meal plan! Thanks for sharing it, Erica.

    I love the idea of a meal plan and am looking forward to using this one! However, I am wondering if you could explain sometime exactly how you go about meal plan/prep/execution. It would be invaluable to me as I am also a homeschooling mother of four! P.S. I am praying you have a smooth move into the new house! Thank you for being an amazing blessing and giving me hope that I can do this homeschooling thing too!

    Oh my gosh, thank so much for this! I need it and so greatly appreciate it. This site is truly a blessing to me! I NEED a regimented meal planning system. :))
    I am currently considering homeschooling my 5th grader. I’m just so scared.
    I will continue to research your informative site.

    Can I just tell you that I have fallen MADLY in love with your site and all of your generosity. I am a 2nd year homeschooler just finding my way in this world. Someone just recently tipped me off to this site. I am suppose to be organizing my first 6 weeks and here I am printing menus for the year and finding more curriculum. THANK YOU!!!!!!!

    Oh, and how do you do all of this. You deserve the most special of hero hearts there could ever be. You are my hero and in my prayers.

    Lots of love to you!
