Meet Morgan's lunch. She's a very ingenious little girl. She's much like a mini-Martha Stewart. It's wonderful that her memory is in tact and she's able to multi-task. I keep wondering where she got these traits because her father and I are pretty nerdy and slow. When doing our unit studies she's often the first one to gather up supplies and check the library books for all related topics. She organizes the stuffed animals at the book store and fixes the shelves at the grocery store if they are off kilter. She puts little place tags on the table when it's time to eat dinner and creates her own centerpieces. She remembers events and reminds me where I put my keys. She's only 7 and already she's really making me look bad. [I'm thinking if I have any more kids in the future, I can let her raise them and maybe they'll all end up like her.]
I thought I would start a new thing here at Sprittibee. I'm posting a photo of our lunch the other day because I thought my daughter was so cute picking her name out of the bowl. This is, however, admitting publicly that I'm not a perfect eater. We do have our "quick" lunches that are quite unhealthy - like most people. We eat a lot of healthy lunches, too! At least they aren't eating white bread PBJ sandwiches, greasy Lays chips, and chocolate chip cookies with chocolate milk every day like my son did at private school for a whole year without me knowing it (just by raising his hand - in KINDERGARTEN - to bypass the hot tray each day! The tray wasn't that healthy of an alternative anyway [I mean - what ARE 'chicken rings' really made of? I've never seen a chicken that looked like a donut.])
So if you want to join in the fun by posting a photo of your homeschool lunch (I'm not going to tag anyone), please post a link in my comments section and I'll feature you in a post once I have a few. Sorry that Blogger doesn't accept trackbacks.
I've had this picture and was going to share it... but the idea for letting others participate came from Wifely Steps who began a similar venture with a refrigerator photo. I added my refrigerator to her growing list of participating appliances over at my Gatheringmanna blog. It is neat to see how other people arrange their magnets. There's also a lovely recipe for my friend Ammie's Authentic Italian Risotto at my other foodie blog if you're interested.
I'm off to go pick berries, visit homeschool friends, and get more homeschooling done today. Have a super Thursday.
