A little bit of this and that.....

I should be doing all my school prep for the week right now. But it's Sunday afternoon, and I'd rather do something I'm blogging instead ;) Science and history planning will happen....later :/  I actually had this long, thought-out post all ready last night, and just as I hit 'publish'.....blogger ate my post! It was just...gone, vanished into thin air. My family was impressed that I didn't get upset or injure my computer.....I simply whined for about five minutes straight and then went to take a hot bath, haha :)

So anyway, this post is much less 'planned', and more of just a photo dump--that way, if blogger eats it again, I won't feel compelled to go take another bath :) 

I took this picture because I love pictures of pretty food! We try to eat 'the colors of the rainbow' as much as we can around here. This was prep for a salad we had last week.

I posted this one on facebook last week, but it was too good not to share again! They were having fun dressing up.

I know, I know....I've got incredibly cute kitchen help ;)

And this girl actually DOES help!! She's old enough now to put the entire salad together all by herself :)

My Love gave me a dozen roses on Valentines Day. Cosette knew the secret ahead of time, and was SO excited when the doorbell rang and there was a big box on the front porch. "I know what it is! I know what it is!!" she kept saying :) I know some of you are more of the 'show our love throughout the year and don't waste money on Valentine's day' sort, and that's cool :) But I'll admit it, I've always been a sucker for a dozen roses ;)

Our weekly meal plan, all written out. A few weeks ago, I asked Joel to 'clean off the dry erase board in the kitchen'. I MEANT the one with the kids chores on it, but I didn't specify that. Poor guy innocently wiped off the wrong board....the one with my meal plan on it......yeah. I've since learned to take a picture of it just in case ;)

By the way, a lot of the recipes you see on the above board can be found at Heavenly Homemakers, one of my favorite 'go-to' sites for healthy recipes :)

So, I was just lamenting the other day to my husband that I never blog anymore. It's not that I don't want's just that with a house full of little ones, it falls lowest on my priority list :(

However.....three kiddos started ballet class today---and that's a reason to blog, right? After all, who doesn't like seeing two year olds dancing around in cute little tu-tus? 

Cosette, Eli, and Leanna started a local homeschool ballet class today. (Noah wants to take it too, but he was a little too shy to join in today---maybe next week??)  Let me just say that I was VERY proud of Joel for not freaking out when I told him that his boys wanted to take ballet---he simply bit his tongue and 'agreed' with me that it would be good exercise for them ;) In the end, I'm really glad Eli decided to take it---he's GOOD at it. He's flexible and well-coordinated---sure doesn't get that from me! 

Look: He can reach over and touch his heel. Can YOU do that? I can't! 

Leanna was the smallest one in the class and had to have her own barre.

We were really impressed with our local college's new athletic facilities---the ballet room was super awesome!

By this point, her little skirt had twisted! :)

It looks like she's waving to me, but she's actually trying to do some stretch :)
