After School Snacks

I think my favorite part of the day is when the children get home from school. Before I leave to pick them up I like to run the vacuum and make sure the house is straight and orderly for their return. I'm not sure they really notice, but even so, I think it must feel relaxing to return home to a tidy and comfortable space.

Lately I have been preparing snacks for the girls. I had gotten in the habit of letting them fend for themselves - but that had led to nonstop grazing and snacks that were just about the size of a full meal. I've been focusing a lot on foods these days (more on that later) and so I decided to start making afternoon snacks that were a) an appropriate size and b) healthy and balanced.

As for Elisabeth - she gets an afternoon snack, too. By way of g-tube, of course!
