- Have you heard of or seen the show, "Jamie's Food Revolution"? If you haven't, you really ought to check it out. British chef Jamie Oliver is trying to wake up America to how our food choices are literally killing us and spark change in the way we eat, especially in the way we feed our children in the public schools. I know I do not eat perfectly and I could stand to lose some weight, but as a family we have decided to permenantly change our eating habits one at a time and have been doing that for almost a year. We feel so much healthier and look forward to continuing to make new changes. This is what he is all about. You can watch full episodes or clips from the shows here.
- I know St. Patrick's day was a while ago, but I haven't really posted much here since then. Even with our allergy restrictions, we managed to have a green breakfast, which the kids loved!
- I had so much fun with Joanna last week. I hope that someday we are able to live closer. Until then, I dream about that cruise we are going to take when neither of us has children too young to leave behind. Hey Jo! I told Jerry that we should drive there with our four kids and that he and Del could stay at your house with your six while we cruise away. I thought they could do home improvement projects together. He wondered if there would be any projects done with ten kids underfoot, but I don't know - it sounds like a perfect plan to me! Don't you think so? I mean the older kids will be old enough to help with the younger ones, right?
- At this point the bathroom remodel is basically done, with only small finishing touches to take care of. We got a mirror up! Isn't it great? The rest is really up to me. I need to find something to hang on the wall above the toilet, a way to add a towel bar to the big tile wall, and a soap dispenser/tissue cover set that matches. Then it's done!! Jerry has already moved on to the next project. He's ripped up the only remaining linoleum in our house and put down tile. He still has to grout that tile, but then we are up to the other bathroom remodel. It never ends, I tell you!
Green apple pear oatmeal with green water. Kinda bland, but the boys thought it was the best!
Me and Jo fixing Sunday lunch together. We spent a fair amount of time in the kitchen, and I must say it is much more fun to spend that much time in the kitchen when you have a friend along for the ride!
Aaron's team just before their first game. Aaron is the fifth from the right on the back row.
A great hit from Ethan!
