Camel Ice Cream

Witt, almost 4

Asking for caramel on his ice cream -
 "Can I have some camel on my ice cream, please?"

 Wanting some clothespins to help hold up a homemade tent -

"Mom, can I have some snatchers to hold up our camp?"


Nathan, 5 1/2

Smacks his head with his hand,
"Come on brain, think! think! Sometimes my brain doesn't work so well!"


Will, 8 1/2

After studying Jupiter -

"Jupiter is full of gas; just like the sun. Maybe someone can make a huge pump to fill up rockets with the gas as fuel."

(Looks like we need to discuss the differences between gas (gasoline) and gas (a state of matter). LOL!)

Help Us to Not Love Pharaoh

Witt, almost 4, is generally a long-winded pray-er. LOL! Here's a short version of his "standard" night time prayer, which is actually pretty good:

Dear God,
Thank you for this day.
Thank you for this beautiful weather.
Thank you for our pets and the computer and all the things we get to do.
Please help us to do everything.
Please help us to love each other.
Please help us to love Jesus, but help us not love Pharaoh and not love the Devil.
In Jesus' Name,

I don't know how Pharaoh got in there, btw. :)


Nathan, age 5 1/2, spilled a small bag of jelly beans in the truck.  His comment:

"I didn't spill them all; I ate one!"

I'm not a big fan of food coloring, but how do you say "no" to a little boy sporting a huge grin when he asks, "Can you make my eggs GREEN?" :D
(At least they were pastured eggs from a farm.)

I've been on a low carb diet this year and apparently I've been talking a little too much about it.  At our end of the year homeschool co-op party, Will (age 8 1/2) came up behind me as I was eating a cookie (the first I'd had in weeks *gasp*) and very politely asked,

"Mom, why are you eating so many carbs today? You might put on some extra weight."

What's New In Our Food?

Does someone you know have Food Sensitivities? Food Allergies? Cancer even?  Have you considered that it might be your *FOOD*? 
Check out these stats:

1. Today, 1 out 17 kids under the age of 3 has a food allergy.
2. From 1997 until 2002, peanut allergies DOUBLED.
3. 9 out of 10 of breast cancer cases in the US are not genetic; they are environmental.

Robin O'Brien is so smart! She is the Horton who heard a Who. I've got her book but haven't started it yet. Can't wait! Watch this video. She is so eloquent & passionate. You WILL be inspired! (copied from Cheeseslave)

 This video has some FABULOUS information and is well worth the time. PLEASE take the time to watch and learn more about our food supply.  There are changes that NEED to be made!
