~Yesterday Kimberly and I made the donuts that are on the front cover of Sept. 2010 "Better Homes and Gardens" issue. Elijah "helped" us. (Our "donut hole cutter" was the blue and white lid to a new water bottle that you see in this picture. =) The donuts were for our breakfast on our 1st day of school.
(I know that most of you don't use your washer top as a counter top...but that is nearly all the counter space I have in my kitchen. My dear husband bought me this big wooden cutting board to lay on top of my washer...so I have a couple more feet of counter space. =)~~Our finished product. They looked better than this before Elijah picked up the tray dropping some of them...knocking some powdered sugar off. =)~
~Our breakfast table.~
~Yummy fresh fruit (Mango, strawberries, and bananas), and home made donuts, plus...
~Scrambled eggs, and coffee. Yes, even Elijah had coffee...with milk. =) (He was sad for he thought he wasn't going to get any fruit. Did he ever have fruit?! He ate 3 or 4 big pieces of Mango, plus other food.=)~
~Our family...minus Mary who was still sleeping.~
~Elijah enjoying his coffee...down to the last drip. He asked for more...but we declined. =)~
~"Mommy the teacher" and her sweet students.~
~Mommy's "littlest helper".~
~Noah helping Mommy by holding Mary.~
~Kimberly at her desk.~
~Sarah at hers. (I forgot to get a pic of Noah at his desk.)~
~We bought Elijah a new notebook to draw in so that he could "do school too." =D~
~Mommy's "biggest helper". =)~
~Phillip was up on our roof praying and so the boys were playing up there. They took our market cart and hooked it on to their truck to make a trailer, then took turns riding in it. =)~
~For lunch we had homemade personal pizzas, chips...and "homemade" oreos for dessert. =D~
It was a good school day....and we're off to finish these grades this year... in between trying to find another place to live here in Colombia (hopefully leak-free roof and mold-free), and moving to Argentina in a few months, Lord willing.
