Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day we started out with some gluten free attempt at heart-shaped...and turkey bacon.  Both of these were big treats because they are so expensive that we don't get them much anymore.  SO,I was so happy to see how excited the kids were.

Luke has been practicing being patient and flexible by having time set aside just to help Moses with something like a puzzle, blocks, lincoln logs, etc.  Luke usually can't handle this because he wants things perfect and he can't handle people messing up his stuff or interrupting what he's doing.  It's been so sweet to see how these two have bonded through this time and how it's really helping Luke.  

Ethan made some gluten free shortbread cookies!

I made some pretty healthy "fudge".  The only ingredients were peanut butter, coconut oil, honey, and cocoa!  It was so good!

Then, we headed to Cub Scouts.   The Tigers got to take a tour of a bank.  It was way more fun than I expected it to be.  The kids each got a dollar and a piggy bank.  They learned tons of cool facts about what is actually on a dollar bill.

I planned to go home and make Chad's favorite dinner, but, we didn't get out of scouts until way late after dealing with some grabbed some chick fil a and called it a night!

What a fun fieldtrip! Lots of yummy goodies, too. I think that's great about Luke/Moses bonding time. I feel like the time Tera and Daniel spend "teaching" Michael is as important (if not more) as their regular assignments.
