We had homemade granola with almond milk for brekkie. For lunch, we made taco salad using:
- organic baby greens
- black beans
- diced tomatoes
- guacamole or chopped avocado
- Kraft catalina or creamy Italian dressing (both are vegan)
- corn chips to top
Friends from our homeschool group gave us these small books to help us journey through Great Lent. Each day after we say morning prayers and read the Bible together, Hannah & Olivia get their books out to check off what they've done. The best thing that has come from this is their desire to be a part of alms giving. Our church is having a canned food drive, and so the girls each picked out some of their favorite items (raspberry jam and tuna fish) to place in the bin. We volunteered at Matthew 25 several times recently. They also started making simple fleece tie blankets, as a Sunday school project to donate. And, Hannah has started to crochet a hat for Calvin's Hats.

One of my favorite authors, Alexander McCall Smith, will be in town next week. I ♥ his series The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency books, which take place in Botswana. I also really, really liked his book La's Orchestra Saves the World. And his children's book The Great Cake Mystery is another excellent one. I think we will bake a cake with jam, like there was in the book, to take when we meet him.
