We are on the road again. This time for 4 weeks, give or take a few. We have a larger, extended stay suite. It's a new one for the kids. It's a 2-floor loft suite. The girls claimed the upper level. Joe and I get a real bedroom. So it's working out great. There's even an oven!! I got them breakfast out one morning this week, and it was a day we went to the museum. I was running late and didn't take the time to make everyone food to eat. I think that is a great record for the way we used to eat. And I had a rough week physically, so every meal was a mind -over-body battle for me.
This is looking down at the guys from the loft.
Here she is making the yogurt parfait for one of her recipes. She said it was really good. She even made it for Joe one morning.
1 small cup of blueberry or cherry Chobani Greek yogurt
1 handful of fresh blueberries
1 handful of crushed cereal. (She used Frosted Flakes which are her favorite.)
Mix together and enjoy.
The boys both started their 4H health programs. So I am trying to ideas at them for their project boards, just to get them to think about it. Joey is working on money in math. Adding and subtracting money (figuring change) is a challenge for him. We will be starting more budgeting work with him in the next couple months. I am going to have him start using a mock checkbook too.
Brayden is still working on fractions, but can't seem to remember all the steps. So we will just keep chugging along, and I will probably make him a "cheat" sheet to use when answering his problems.
Gonna have somewhat of a relaxing weekend. Visit to the bookstore, maybe some mini-golf, and some movies & board games. Have big plans for next weekend.
It was a tough school week. The kids fought about doing anything. They also fought with each other. So it was a challenge. Too much drama. But we will survive. Looking forward to starting another week!
Hope everyone had a great week!
