1. Do you make your kids finish all the food on their plates?
Nope. Never have and never will. That causes bad food habits. I do try to encourage the girls to take only what they will eat or to take a little and go back for more if they wish.
2. Do you give an allowance?
Again, no. I don't believe that at this age it actually teaches financial responsibility. They will learn that latter in life. My girls get plenty of toys, snacks, and treats at various times, and it all depends on what is happening at the time.
3. Do you actually park your car in the garage?
4. What is one food you will NEVER cook?
Preferably all of them! Ug, I really hate cooking. I can't really say there is anything I would never cook. You never know what kind of strange ideas we will come up with in this house!
5. Do you have anything exciting planned for the summer?
My husband and I are hoping to take a day trip to the Grand Canyon Deer Farm with the kids. We got married there, and it's been a long time since we've been able to go back and visit. Hopefully things will be calm enough for this to happen for us. I'm really looking forward to it.
Other than that, I am excited that I will be teaching two fun summer school classes. Both are based on the historical fiction book called "Chains" by Laurie Halse Anderson. The morning session will be a literature study of the book. The afternoon session will be writing and putting together a newspaper based on the time period. It should be a lot of fun. I'm hoping my principal will let my girls join me even though they don't attend my school. I think they would enjoy the class and I know they would add a lot to the discussions.
