I am still searching for meals my kids will eat. So far we have spaghetti, tacos, quesadillas, and chicken adobo. Tonight I am going to try Sweet and Sour Chicken from a recipe I found on Disneyfamily.com. It has soy sauce, ketchup, and sugar so it can't be too bad.
I have to cook 2 pounds of chicken because it is getting more and more difficult to have enough food for my kids. Ever since I weaned Eli, he has been eating like a pig. I think Eli eats more than anyone else right now. He eats waffles, apple sauce, and anything that I happen to be eating. He loves to beg his father for food the most though. I think Eli does it as a way to bond with his daddy. Eli is 20 months old now and can pretty much eat anything.
Another boy that is getting older is Jon who just turned 9. Jon still loves Star Wars, a life long love that began when he was 1 year old. Now he collects Star Wars the Clone Wars Lego Mini-figures. He even makes custom mini-figures. They entertain him for hours. He also loves to read Rick Riordan books and mythology. That makes me happy because I also love mythology. Since mythology can be "R" rated it is nice to have them kid friendly in Riordan's books. Jon still does gymnastics and is doing well. He is excelling in parallel bars and rings.
Viki recently turned 11 and is loving her new iPod Touch that she got for her birthday. I now can enjoy her Facetime! She is obsessed with Smallville right now. She is currently on Season 2. She also loves Rick Riordan books and has read all of them. She still enjoys her friends and helping out at church. She loves baking and taking care of little children.
Aron still has some behavioral issues at home but is doing great at school. I am still trying to get him more disciplined. He is a very good reader but for some reason does not do well on his tests at school. I love to talk to him about his day and to read the Hobbit to him before he goes to bed.
Right now I am still obsessed with the Middle Ages and would love to be a professional Medievalist. I am reading Montaillou a book about 14th century France. My heart is still in the 13th and early 14th century.
I still love genealogy and would love to somehow combine the two obsessions together.
Well, this is my life- on to cook Sweet and Sour Chicken!
