Raspberry Glazed Chicken



I've had this recipe sitting in my draft folder since early June. Not sure why I haven't shared it yet...the pics aren't my favorite, but the recipe was really good! Plus it's super easy, so that's a plus.

Ok well, I know this was a short one, but I've gotta run. We've got Jesse's kindergarten meet-n-greet today, where he meets his new teacher and some of the kids in his class (many of whom he went to daycare with, so that's nice). Plus he's gonna do a little bus ride around town...he's most excited about that.

His kindergarten teacher is like...12. She was just hired a month ago fresh out of college (seriously, I think she's about 22...just a baby). I'm a little nervous about the year, but Heath think's it'll be good (and bad). She's just out of school and super excited...not yet burnt-out, but on the other hand, she doesn't have the experience the older teachers have.

Oh well...everyone's gotta start somewhere I guess! I just can't believe my sweet little guy is starting kindergarten on Wednesday. He's growing up way to damn fast....I don't like it. At all.
