Everyday for lunch, William wants to make a toasted peanut butter and banana sandwich with honey. No joke. He is happy and content with the same ol' thing day after day. Dennis likes them too. Except he has sunflower butter. Since I make lunch for the rest of us, and William wants something special, I usually ask him if he will make Dennis a sandwich too. William is happy to do it if it means he gets to eat what he wants! Of course, Dennis is usually right there watching him. How sweet.
Annalyn and Galina have gone snail crazy.
In case you haven't read here, we finally have our confirmed travel date. So we made a big batch of borscht for the kids to eat while we are gone. It freezes great!
What a nice lunch.
I got in on a deal where I only paid $10 for the newspaper for the whole year. I only did this so I could get the coupons and start saving! Today William cut them all out for me, bless his heart. Now if I could only figure out what to do with them. Haven't saved a penny yet. Help!
If it's not snails, it's gophers. They are wreaking havoc in our front and back yard. After setting traps for two weeks Annalyn was pleased to finally catch one today. At dinner as John went around the table and had all the kids share what the highlight of their day was, Annalyn said it was catching the gopher! You go girl!
The home schooled kids are reading Tom Sawyer. This week there were many fun activities requiring posters-- an illustrated pirate dictionary, and a wanted dead or alive pirate poster. Dennis of course was very interested in having his own piece of paper to draw something. To make it fun, I told him to go sit on his bed, close his eyes, and count to 10. Then, I would come and surprise him with a piece of big paper. I did just that and it excited him so!
Here he is getting ideas of what to draw.
