Well…Labor Day has passed by us and with it goes all wearing of white clothing (if you listen to those “in the know”…which I don’t, obviously, because I am currently wearing a white cardigan LOL). The hottest of the summertime heat and humidity is behind us (fingers crossed) as this week we have gotten a glimpse of slightly cooler mornings and evenings 🙂 It is nice that you can actually breathe when you step outside! I can’t actually say that it feels like Fall here in South Georgia, but it is getting there!
School started for us over a month ago (I know, crazy right?) but this week marks the start of soccer season and with it our weeknights are about to get even more hectic. Beside school and homework (because now lil man is a big first grader), he will be playing soccer this year, so we will have practices and games. I love to have quick, easy and healthy meals like these tuna quinoa wraps on hand for those crazy nights. Portable (no mayo, but lots of heart-healthy avocado), lots veggies and whole grain wraps are mom-approved for nutrition and convenience and kid-approved for taste!
