A glimpse...

 I was chopping carrots and cucumbers for a salad the other day and asked the kids if they wanted a few slices. Their eyes bugged out when they saw the cucumber slices. My children have a love/hate relationship with cukes. They love 'em. Then they hate 'em. Apparently, we were on a "love" cycle so I doled out several slices and continued with salad preparations, convinced that I was a fabulous mother whose children ate VEGETABLES for SNACKS.

Grabbing the raspberry vinaigrette and a bowl, I turned to sit at the kitchen table and saw this:
 What? Where did they learn this?
 Also, what is all over her mouth? Chocolate pudding?
FAIL on the healthy eating, after all...
  Truth be told, they DID eat the cucumbers (and carrots!) once they were done with their "spa day". And Evan said the cucumbers made reciting his spelling words much easier to concentrate...

 Just for kicks, I decided to include a few more weird pics of what homeschooling looks like in our house. Corinne not only continued her study of the Iroquois beading project we were doing in co-op, but also did so with a... headdress?
Their block city. Complete with cell towers and exotic zoo and security cameras and recycling facility...

BONUS is the glimpse of ME in the background. You lucky, lucky ducks.
