We had a wonderful at home day.
We finished The Door in the Wal
l - 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.
Living all of life before the face of God...
Love winning days!! :) And boy, that food looks AMAZING!!!
Winning days are magical!
A home made hot pocket...that's a good idea!
