My favorite comfort food in winter is homemade soup. The weather has been dreary lately and I have been in the mood to try different soups. I love making fresh homemade rolls with it too. Although with my teenage son those don’t last 24 hours in this house. Last weekend my daughter, my friend and I made Cheeseburger soup together. My daughter really got into helping by peeling the potatoes for this. It was fun to have her help us. This soup turned out really amazing. The only thing was that I expected it to be a little thicker then what it was. Let me tell you it tastes even better the next day!!
This week was a pretty good week. I was suppose to finish up babysitting and Friday was to be my last day. My daughter was still sick on Monday so I had to take her back in. We found out that she needs to see a cardiologist and I thought it was best for all of us if I just ended it sooner. I am pretty sure they were upset because I didn’t get a response. I don’t feel guilty anymore because I did what I thought was best for my daughter. The kids really were able to focus and do artsy things again. We haven’t been able to do that for the past few months.
Do your children love to cook and bake? My daughter absolutely loves to be in the kitchen with me learning how to cook and clean. Now she can be in her own little kitchen in Dr Panda’s new app called Dr Panda’s Cafe. Your child will get a hands on look at working in restaurant by seating, taking orders, cooking, serving, and cleaning up for some really cute and adorable animals. The suggested age for this is 5 and under, however my daughter is 8 and absolutely loves this app.
In science we have been working on the African Grasslands. We have been learning about the habitat and the different animals. Well I have been wanting to add some art into our curriculum as it’s been a while since we had the chance to do art. I stumbled up on Ndebele House art. It was a lesson plan in one of my art subscriptions. Even though we didn’t study the Ndebele people I thought it would be fun to tie it in as a theme.
Our week wasn’t very productive as we got hit with the germies again. I am really tired of all this sickness. The way the weather has been it surely doesn’t help our cause. I would really just like to evict the germies.
My daughter gave us a scare and we almost ended up in the ER. She still has a low grade fever today but seems to be doing better. Hoping that fever breaks soon. She has bronchitis. My son’s fever finally broke yesterday and he was feeling great again!
