Tried a new recipe for dinner tonight, from the Wheat Belly book. It turned out okay, but the kids weren't big fans.
Probably won't make it again, but got me thinking about using eggplant to make a dish similar to lasagna. Might have to give it a shot sometime. Thinking it might work if I cut the peel away and use the insides as a noodle layer. Perhaps I will try it with some of the eggplants we grow.
Picked up some more homeschooling books today and got a chance to start one on Unschooling. So far I feel like it's the way we already live. I try to take advantage of any time my kids ask questions. Carolyn has been loving counting the newly opened flowers every morning. We found lots of worms in the graden area today as we were digging, so we looked up why worms are good for the soil. The village is about to do some work on a sewer drain near the big pond at our neighborhood entrance, so we talked about drains and sewers while on our walk this afternoon. So many easy ways to teach our kids, without even really thinking about it. Some days (like today) I wish that I could get Jon on board with homeschooling. I really do think that both of our kids could thrive at home. But he's already firmly stated he's against it. So I have the next year to work with Carolyn, and then hopefully we can continue to keep her interested in learning through unschooling at home even after she starts school. The next few years are going to be interesting.
