We had a wonderful at home day.

We finished The Door in the Wall - which I loved as much this times as the previous three times I've read it to kids. Zander read a chapter out of Fine Print and did GREAT. He also read 1/2 a chapter in Lord of the Rings. This proves a person CAN teach themselves to read if you let them go at it in the way that seems right to them. I am currently teaching him some drills and rules to make his reading quicker and to help him win the phonics games we play on Fridays. ::wink::

If you look closely at her feet you can tell Stacia was jumping for joy when I took this photo. She KNEW her new math texts were in that package. In her mind this means she is transitioning into third grade. Since this little 8 yo is taller than many 5th graders she's VERY excited to be "growing into taller grades." Um....yeah...still working on that image thing.

THIS was the big win of the day! I made a totally vegan  meal.  Everyone LOVED it....loved it. They all said I could make it every week. I took the  Lentil Mushroom Spinach Roulade filling Arielle and I love...and turned it into Hot Pockets. I added a bit of extra fennel and generous splashes of lemon....left out the nuts and nutritional yeast - because I forgot.

Another win of the day was 50 min on the elliptical and the sculpting session from P90....followed by a leisurely soak in the hot tub.....totally onsen like....just needed a friend or two to join me....In time....

Clean up is done and it's time for Family Circle....I'm ahead of schedule to have blogged before bed time....another win.
