Dinner tonight...Jambalaya 😋
My middle mans favorite dish. He smiled big when I started to cut up these healthy ingredients.
And...it made me smile knowing he appreciates this healthy eating.

A sensorial tasting lesson included a sweet taste of honey. 😋The lesson gave him the opportunity to taste sweet, sour and salty foods and reminded me how VERY IMPORTANT it is to note honey should not be consumed before 12 months of age. “Exposing your baby to a variety of new foods and textures is one of the most exciting parts of the first year. Honey is sweet and mild, so parents and caregivers may think it’s a good choice as a spread on toast or a natural way to sweeten other items. However, experts recommend waiting until after your baby’s first birthday to introduce honey into their diet. This includes mass-produced honey, raw and unpasteurized honey, and local honey. This food rule also applies to all foods and baked goods containing honey.”* ... To continue reading: www.facebook.com/thepreparednest.

Don’t forget we have some fun gouache lessons in the Art School: Watercolors 101 course. Gouache is much easier (to me) than watercolor because I’m so heavy-handed (& a wee bit impatient)! 😳🎨 #linkinbio

Thoughts lead to feelings,
Feelings lead to emotions,
Emotions lead to desires,
Desires lead to actions,
The more we can control our thoughts before they go to feelings, emotions and then desires, the more in control we are before we act out the thoughts.
The more we practice catching and controlling our thoughts before they become feelings, the easier it is to stay in control of our thoughts and not allow the old patterns to play out.
The above was written to me by a close friend and it’s all so true! It’s important to surround ourselves with people who love to learn and teach so can reflect our knowledge and experiences. Through conversation we deepen our understandings of what it means to be a positive and caring citizen of the world. #embracemana#lovetolearn#teachingmoments#friendship#shareknowledge#emotions#desires#intentionalliving#consciouschoices#journey#selfdiscovery#actions#outdooreducation
Look at these gorgeous drawings of their own hands by Jen and her daughter! Aren’t they fabulous? And I LOVE so much that mom and daughter make the time to create together on a regular basis! #pricelessmemories 🖐🏻👊🏻💕 | Repost from @ourbiggsadventures - Drawing 101 with @masterpiecesociety this week, the middle child and I sketched our hands on our homemade viewfinders, toned our paper and transferred our sketches to the toned paper. This is the first time ever, that I can remember anyway, drawing my own hand and having it actually look somewhat like my actual hand! 🤚🏻 Such a cool set of lessons learning how to shadow and highlight with pencil AND eraser, too. #artwiththemiddlechild#biggslearningacademy#lifeofahomeschoolmom#masterpiecsociety#drawing101#welleducatedheart
This might not be the normal image you’re used to from a charity organization working in Uganda, but that’s exactly why it’s important. Kids are kids no matter where they from and by their very human nature they deserve a quality education. If your neighbor’s kiddo needed a boost to get to school, wouldn’t you help them out? We’re asking you to do just that, these neighbors just happen to live 7000 miles away.
