Where we live, winter is soccer season for the high schools. I think it is fine for her to not play in the club league this fall. Hopefully the high school soccer team has practices that will begin in the fall and then she should be able to either make JV or Varsity. Then she is set and you won't have to pay for the private club again. I know some of us have kids playing on both tournament teams and high school teams, but it is not necessary unless your daughter is serious about playing in college. Otherwise unless you live in an area that is uber competitive, and she might not actually make her high school team (either JV or Varsity), then you honestly should not have to pay for extra soccer time.


Thanks so much for the recipe! I tried Stephanie's recipe (one of my favorite sites!), but it needed tweaking to turn it into a family favorite. Also, I definitely overcooked it. I'm going to try your version and see what happens!


Receipe sounds good. I just need a crockpot and the desire to cook!

Have a fun summer with the kids.


I need a good lasanga right now. Thanks!


I might try to give that a go some week


I have never done lasagna in the crockpot, but I'm willing to try. Thanks


The recipe is great, wonderful and amazing! I thought I had the perfect recipe before (in a conventional oven), but this one is just sooooo delicious that I'll never make it any other way again! Thanks!!!

She works from home as Social Media Programs Manager for SheKnows, and is the mom to six kids, most of whom play instruments, sing or dance and all of whom are much smarter than she will ever be. In other words, her house is never ever quiet or still. A concentration of asthma, food allergies, spectrum disorders and learning disabilities means that she spends an awful lot of time second guessing herself and Dr. Googling, as well as learning to cook everything the family might like to eat. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, boxing (she has her Black Belt in Muay Thai), sleeping, exploring coffee shops, photography, ballet class and cooking. She excels in being a smart mouth and has her major in sarcasm, with a dual minor in BS studies and avoiding laundry.
