I really want to reverse this mentality and actually TEACH my kids to cook. Ivy was begging and begging to help me make pancakes. Okay, pancakes are easy. I only use the Krusteaz easy mix from Sam's Club. So I gave her a go at it. I had to hold my frustration in at her walking away from the stove letting them burn. Then turning them way to early. But after about 6 or 7 pancakes she got the idea. You don't walk away from the stove and you have to watch the food. :) See? Turning a simple 15 minute affair into AN HOUR is not so bad. Erk, erk....I can painfully feel my patience growing.
Ashley took the pancakes that were crumbled apart and threw it took the chickens. That's why she is sitting in the window. So cute. Today was just a really quiet and peaceful day. I started my day with a blessing that went like this....

So far, it's been a beautiful and peaceful day. Caleb's fever has gone down. House is getting
