- No closing yet.
- I still have dandelion greens left. Juicing them with carrots and apples wasn't bad. I must leave the celery out of the juice and it does taste ok. John even likes it.
- John cooked steak tonight. Scott didn't touch it because I planned a healthy dinner and John didn't clear his plans with me. Scott sticks up for my meals (most of the time). Scott's in the photo with a castle he made out of the Math-U-See manipulatives. He got his long hair cut off this week.
- Scott has been listening to Harry Potter on CD. That gives me a break from reading out loud. Our library has the whole series on tape. He's up to The Goblet of Fire.
- William is reading the Twilight Series. He is almost done with the 4th book. Now do I have to worry about him dating a teen age vampiress and choosing to become one himself.
- I've got a few books of my own I'm flipping through. I'd really like to read them all cover-to-cover (and share more thoughts about them). Unconditional Parenting by Alfie Kohn, Square Foot Gardening by Mel Bartholomew, Making More Milk by Diana West IBCLC and Lisa Mascaro MA IBCLC.
- On Sunday I am the designated "volunteer mother" at Temple during class hours. My main job is to bring drinks a 10am snack for 60 kids and then whatever else they need me for that morning. I got some honest kids juice pouches (No HFCS) and a case of bananas. Don't even ask me what parents usually bring; It's disgusting what parents bring for a Sunday morning snack. I'll probably be remembered.
- David does not attend Sunday class and he is looking forward to being picked up by Mary for the morning. I told Mary she can take him to church. Ironic isn't it, that there is no accommodation for David at the Temple while I volunteer? So he's going to church instead? Before I rant too much, Mary is probably going to treat and spoil him, and not take him to church after all.
- What's David reading? That's a good question. Is he going to be a natural reader? You'd think by 5 1/2 a natural reader would be showing some definite signs of naturally learning. Hmmm... I've been thinking about this and learning what to look for so he doesn't fall behind.
- The boys have some celebrations to look forward to in May. Awards night at Temple. A Friend's Bar Mitzvah on another weekend; They are really looking forward to dressing up for this. I have to get them shirts and shoes. Finally they will have a belt test in karate at the end of the month.
