"Behold, children are a gift of the LORD; the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one's youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them..." Psm 127

It's all about the Break and Snack time!

On the days we have Gunter at our house , the 2 boys bug me about every 10 minutes about the time. (The schedule says 10:30-Break) Maybe I need a clock on the wall...anyway.

They were very excited today when they came inside from playing with Ryan's cousins (who also homeschool) and we had a snack on the table for them.

Who knew a bunch of boys would get so excited about animal cookies, frosting and some left over sprinkles from last Easter? The creative juices started flowing as they each designed their own individual little animal cookies. It was a challenge to get a picture of the finished project before they popped it into their mouths.

I thought about making it a math story problem, as we homeschool moms often do. After considering it would have to be addition for some, multiplication or fractions for others and probably some Algebra for one, I re-considered and just let them enjoy!

We did work on manners...OK not really but we did make them say "please" and "thank you" to each other. Licking the knives and fingers were allowed today.
