Our School

We love the school the kids are going to. It reminds me of when I went to school. The size of the rooms are huge, unlike their old school, there was barely any room to move around. They have an awesome playground, and they even have swings!!! They have PE 2 times a week, and music on the other 2 days and on Friday they have Rhythm, which is where they learn dances. They even have Spanish on the days they have music. It's so fun. The kids have made a lot of friends already, and they love going to school. I think being the new kids was actually really great for them, because everyone would fight over who gets to sit by them or play with them, it has been fantastic. I also have to mention how much I love the homework....only 1 page a night. Much better than Elena's 60-90 minutes at her old school. In music class, Elena is learning to play the recorder...I love it, I still remember how to play it!!!

My New Best Friend!!!

So, I've discovered a new best friend. Scott and I have been trying to eat more vegetables, so we started trying these Ziploc Zip n Steam bags. I absolutely love them. We've cooked chicken in them and it was so fast and so tender. Every night with dinner we throw zucchini, broccoli, carrots and sometimes red potatoes in the bag and it's ready in less than 6 minutes. My children are loving it as well, Brooklyn can't get enough zucchini, which she calls, "pickles!" Anyways, just wanted to share this with all of my friends and family in case you are interested in eating more veggies, and needing a new way to cook them!!!
