It has been a while since we've talked about healthy eating habits around here and since everyone is older, now is the time. I've noticed that they eat all the time. I mean, all the time. There is not a moment that goes by that I don't have a child asking me for something to eat. The older ones have learned how to use the toaster to make sandwiches and the younger ones couldn't be happier. Now if only I could get them to clean their rooms.
I loathe getting the bi-weekly fliers in the mail, (if you didn't get enough sale papers on Wednesday, you can read the same papers again on Friday). I never look at them. They usually end up in a pile on the table by the front door until someone takes them out to the recycling bin but this time I had an idea (I do get them from time to time, AlhamduLILLAH). Keep in mind, I looked up several food pyramids and I chose the one that I agreed with the most.
The younger kids did a little copywork from Enchanted Learning to complement the lesson. My four year old is not reading or writing yet but my five year old is.
My eldest is still working her way through Egypt. We're using the next section of our History Pockets and she finished reading Mystery of the Whispering Mummy in the Three Investigators Series. She really likes detective series.
