Staying Accountable...

OK I'm going to share we plan for dinner and if I don't share somewhere that day that we cooked that meal - keep me accountable. Honestly, though, I'm not sure anything would be more shameful than last week's menu which I already posted. ::snort::

Tues - Organic Cookie Dough/Cookies - MILK
Wed - Ice Cream Shakes - MILK
Thurs - Freshly ground whole wheat Waffles
Fri - Pizza Hut

A Plan:
Sat - Shake and Bake chicken, Ranch Potatoes and good trimmings
Sun - eat out; food court
Mon - BBQ chicken breasts (and I made extra BBQ so it's on hand for quick meals)
Tues - Spaghetti
Wed - Popcorn Chicken
Thurs - Roast or Meatloaf or Alfredo Meatballs
Fri - Pizza - possibly homemade, probably not
Sat - Easy Stroganoff

It's not back where we were in TX when I made homemade cereals, breads, sausage, ice cream, pizza sauce etc....but it beats last week. Several nameless children have mentioned they prefer the previous menu. ::snort::

Before you ask - the chicken breasts are in the crockpot - high for 8 - 12 hours. LOL

Science Anyone

video

In case the video doesn't work for some of you ..... I'll include photos too. Mom, Adult kids...do you like the videos or do they simply slow down your connection and make it more frustating than fun to see the kids?

Here's how science went for us today.

Jared is doing Apologia Biology (an ancient edition I'm sure). You may remember that last week he took all the kids and they visited our farmer's pond.

They've had things "growing" in the boys room. Let me rephrase ... things that are SUPPOSED to be growing for a week.

We were blissfully reading Early Thunder when Jared announced he was ready to do his science experiement.

Everyone got to help collect the specimen. Everyone got to peek in the scope. Everyone got to check the text for proper names of squiggly things. Jared gets to write it up and Jared gets credit. WHO do you think did science? One? All ? One text working for Preschool - Sophomore.
