Yesterday was such an amazing day. I will write more about it in my next post, but one of the things we did was go by the Farmer’s Market in our “big town” yesterday. I met someone in person that … Continue reading

Today we had choir, then lunch, games, and an Easter egg hunt at First Baptist in Rocksprings. It was a great time!
I had to buy groceries at our local small grocery store called Lowe’s Market this week because I won’t have time tomorrow when I’m in Kerrville (I get out of counseling just in time to leave to pick up the kids from the end of our 8 mile dirt road).
Groceries are a little more expensive at Lowe’s so I had to limit what I bought because my grocery budget is really small this check.
- Potatoes (10lbs)
- Broccoli crowns (3)
- Cabbage (1)
- Baby carrots
- Zucchini (2)
- Yellow squash (2)
- Onions (2)
- Grape tomatoes
- Lime juice
- Flour tortillas (2)
- Shredded cheese (1lb)
- Block cheese (8oz)
- Half and half
- Greek yogurt (5)
- Mini pizzas
- Corn dogs
- Country pork ribs
- 1lb ground beef
- Hamburger buns
- Caffeine free Diet Pepsi (the didn’t have Coke Zero)
- Whole wheat bread
All of this was $94. The only things I will have to buy the next 2 weeks will be more sodas, and maybe more bread. We are eating in the dining hall a lot and we still have quite a bit of food here.
