Cells ~ It's What's for Dinner

Dawson made edible cells on Friday.


He made an animal cell pizza ...


and a plant cell chocolate chip cookie ...


He reviewed what he's learned about cells the past two weeks, and I had dinner made by someone else. Win, win!!

  6. Wow! Dawson did a great job. I have been anticipating his creative cells from when you mentioned him having to do one a couple of post ago. These are awesome and now I am hungry! ;)

    Thank You. I have children that learn so differently. Dawson and you have helped encourage me to grab those moments of teaching outside the box.

  8. HI! I love your son's creativity! I am planning to use the plant cell cookie in my Classical Conversations class on Friday. Can you tell me what he used to create the cookie? It looked like Hot Tamales, but that was all I could really see for sure! Thank you!

    1. I honestly don't know where we got the images. My son just pulled them up on his iPhone. I'd just google animal cell and plant cell images and see what comes up.

    1. That was a long time, lol! It looks like I used black olive slices, green and red pepper slices, a piece of thin sliced ham, a mushroom button, onion slices, and pepperonis. Have fun!

Ketogenic + Restless Legs = Insomnia ... Um, No!

Okay, I have been eating ketogenic for five days now. I have gotten through the carb detox headaches and have settled into a macro plan of 5% carbs (no grains), 20% protein, 75% fat. The upside is that I like the idea of limiting my body of all of the glucose which will help my minor health conditions. But there are definitely downsides! The first is that I am having a hard time getting in enough fats under the strictures of the diet. Who knew it would be hard to eat fats? The real problem is that the fats I want to eat then include a consumption of protein and/or carbs and then throws off my percentages. Still working on that one. The bigger issue is that for the past couple of nights I have had trouble sleeping, and I have had restless legs. Sleeping is one of those things that I do well. I go to bed at the same time every night (for the most part) and get up at the same time each morning. I can fit in a 15-30 minute power nap in the afternoon and have no trouble going to

Last Child in the Woods ~ Chapters 1-4

Welcome to our book study of Last Child in the Woods by Richard Louv. To be honest, I have no idea what this "study" is going to look like. I imagine that when we get together I will post about all of the things that caught my eye. And I would ask that you leave a comment, or a link to your own blog post in the comment, about what caught yours. This isn't anything formal, ladies, just a place to talk about what we have read. I have now read the first four chapters of Last Child in the Woods two times. It is just so good. Several things have specifically hit me deep, but in general I just realized that "times, they are a changin'." Things aren't the way they were when we were kids. Chapter 1.

What feelings, visions, senses does it conjure up? For me, it's not a
