Spring break has been good to us

Saturday, March 30, 2013

I can tell how much the daily grind has gotten to me lately by how much I'm enjoying not having a schedule this week. It's spring break, and all the kids are out of school and home with me. We have all slept in every single day, and our mornings are so nice and slow, just the way I like them. Ben didn't go to one soccer practice (we usually have three) and there are no school drop-offs and pick-ups to worry about.

We just bought a waffle maker at the beginning of the week, and have made them three days in a row this week. It's so much fun! I usually stay away from buying all those appliances that just gather dust on the shelf, but this one was definitely worth it. I love me a good waffle, and now I can be sure there are no preservatives in mine. We've been using a whole grain mix, which tastes surprisingly good and is so filling, and we top our waffles with fresh strawberries or frozen berries and powdered sugar if we're out of fresh ones.

It is definitely a good start to the day!

By the way, do you love how Mila is unloading the dishwasher behind Ben? I have two helpers in the kitchen now! That girl has been so eager to earn money by doing chores, and unloads the dishwasher for me every chance she gets--I'm so thankful for her sweet disposition and her eagerness to help. I can tell she's going to be a hard worker.

Your waffles look fantastic. I was just thinking the other day how nice a waffle would taste. They always seem so much more fun than pancakes, don't they? I think I may need to find myself a waffle iron. :)

My mom has a waffle iron, so it's always a treat having breakfast at her house. I really like the Kodiak Waffle mix. It makes killer pancakes too.:)

Your girls are so sweet for helping out with the chores! Hard workers indeed!
