I literally go numb thinking about what to have for lunch! I want it to be healthy, yummy and fun. I want diversity and uniqueness. It's not that I want to be exotic, but I want to be as creative as I am with breakfast and dinner. But coming up with lunch ideas leaves me a blank slate. SO, I went to one of my favorite food blogs and found a LUNCH LIST! Yes!!
You can download your healthy lunch list from Heavenly Homemakers.
The other day we got a surprise from Karen & Kids! We sent them a letter and they sent us back 8 CD's, stickers and bookmarks. My kids were so excited and I was as well.
After lunch I've started a training time. I'm reading a book by the Duggar girls and they shared that their family plays The Obedience Game. Basically, you give each child a special little task and they have to say "Yes, mom, I'd be happy to!" Off they go and then they report back. Big high fives for everyone! I'm hoping as I do this, my kids will respond well in REAL situations.
Also, we are enjoying reading The Boxcar Children for a calming story time as we prepare for quiet time. We are on book 7. While I read both kids are writing or drawing in their journals.
That sums up our lunch hour. I've learned to try to make each moment count.
