What I Accomplished Today

Planning to start a new unit tomorrow for school. The digital photography kind of flopped. I knew if it was boring me, Grace probably thought it was torture. I already had on hand an American Government lapbook from Hands of a Child in my computer plus I had some visuals that would make it easier to understand. Grace is not a cut and paste kind of girl so we don't actually do the lapbook pieces, we read the material then answer the questions. This go around I will also prepare a quiz for her to take at the end of the unit. I thought it would be a really good time to study how our government works with the elections coming up. In the fall I have an Elections Unit Study to go along with the Presidential elections.

This afternoon after church I made some gluten-free waffles for breakfast this week. Three days a weeks we go to a Jazzercise class and a piece of toast and banana just doesn't give me enough energy to get through the hour long class. I froze the waffles and will heat them up in the toaster before class. Scott tried them and said they taste kind of gritty, probably from the flax seed. But with butter and syrup I am sure I can choke them down. lol.

Use unsweetened apple sauce instead of the flax seed and they won't be gritty.

This is a great time to focus on election material and oru government structure. I recall when my daughter was young we did a project that included making an voting boothe out of a refridg. box and imagined with a group of others what a campaign might be like. WE represented both sides and ended up having an election in our boothe on election day. It is a fun memory.

Bisquick has a good non gritty gluten free pancake/waffle mix. And there are some good almond flour recipes.

I need to perfect our own mix someday soon because we all love waffles :-)
