I am attempting to make a few changes in the way we eat. While we totally revamped when Pete and Re-Pete were infants I have slacked in the past few years in some areas. A few friends have been making Kombucha and I decided I would try it as well. It is a fermented drink made from sweet tea. I won't get into the details of that in this post but fermented foods in your diet are very beneficial. The boys have nicknamed the SCOBY floating on top "omelet" and are getting a kick out of this. Now to get everyone to drink a little every day.
Missy filled her own tubes with Root Beer flavored pink tinted lip gloss. They also made a body spray which is Missy's favorite. I made one too and hoped that her tastes were similar to mine so we could share. Wishful thinking I suppose but it was not to be. Her little nose gravitated toward the scents that I so dislike -- floral scents! At first she liked an awfully strong scent called Jasmine, so I pointed her to some seasonal scents and thankfully those were a little more tolerable. She settled on Blooming Tulip which is a very refreshing scent and now our house smells a little bit like spring.
Friday it seemed as if my brain was going into overload! Everyone was on fire with wanting to learn. I don't know what got into them and George even accomplished a week's worth of work in one day! But by the end of the day of Missy wanting to work on reading and me being a dictionary for the older boys as they were writing stories, I was getting so confused with all of the words going in and out. Ahh! I finally told them we all needed a break. The boys did finish their stories and Little Miss did yet another lesson in her book for a total of 17 that day! Thankfully John picked up pizzas for supper.
Saturday -- George and Re-Pete had a guitar recital. They enjoy playing together and this time they were joined by their friend from 4H. They improve with each performance and it is so fun to watch their faces full of concentration.
That was our week in a nutshell. I did get a new washing machine but I will post about that as when I started typing it turned into too much for this post.
