Is anybody else having "one of those" weeks? I find that the week before a transition is always a touch difficult. I hate to throw blame around...but I think it's my kids. They are "off" this week. Not "off" as in vacation, "off" as in, not themselves. I think they know that change is coming, and they aren't handling it very well. I am so excited for this school year to get started, I can't even tell you! I'm hoping that my excitement wears off on these kids at some point. Uff-da...
Some pictures of food...why not?...the top photo is a Jello Cake that my girlfriend, Susan, brought over on Sunday...isn't it gorgeous?!? It tasted even more awesome than it looked.
The second food shot is of a banana split that the kids and I made. Homemade vanilla ice cream, one perfectly ripe banana (sliced), caramel sauce, and homemade fudge frosting. Oh my goodness...
Lucy insisted that I take a photo of her mac and cheese the other day. I said "no" and she was so hurt that I said "ok". Took the photo and she told me that I could put it on my blog. So, here is Lucy's Annie's Organic Whole Wheat mac and cheese with a little salt and pepper.
I'm off to type up scripture verses that the kids and I will work on memorizing this year...focusing on patience and self control. Can anyone relate?
