Those are all the changed foods I can think of right now. It's been a challenge to come up with dinners on some night there for awhile we were living on mostly rice which with their high glycemic index value, isn't all that good for you either. I am hoping that as things go we get even more creative and come up with some great meals.
During the last month Pumpkin came down with bronchitis again and we had to take him to the hospital. A few days after that he came down with a stomach flu and could not even keep a sip of water down so we took him back into the ER at 8pm. We did not get out of there until 3:30 am! When we got out to our car exhausted with a sick 2 year old who at least was no longer throwing up because they gave him some nausea medicine because he was dehydrated, our car would not start! It wouldn't even turn over, nothing. We called Hubby's brother because he's the one that figured out last time what was wrong with our tricky, finicky car. He tried to talk us through it but we couldn't find the wires he was talking about. At four I took Pumpkin back in and sat in the Er with a blanket they gave me. At four thirty Hubby came in to tell me he couldn't fix it and I texted a friend of mine who lives in that city (an hour from home) but there was no answer so we went back to the car to sleep. At about five thirty I called my mom but she had to take kids to school 45 min's in the other direction so she couldn't help either. It was around eight am that my friend called and she came with breakfast for us and around ten my father in law showed up and took us to get Pumpkins med and then home. He went back with Hubby to fix the car and they came back later in the day with it working again yeay. Apparently the starter is was was broken this time. It made for a long night and an even longer day. A few days later I got the flu and so did Mr. A. The next week Hubby got it the only one who didn't is Monkey thank goodness. I am so glad to be better and have the children better I can't even tell you enough!
Mr. A's last day of official school is this week. Official because he still will be doing some schooling through the summer in math and reading he's a little behind in those areas. He's pretty excited though. On Friday he gets to have a pool party with other homeschoolers in our area and Monkey is pretty happy to be swimming finally.
Yesterday I worked in the roses because they have been neglected just like this blog only they are growing wildly out of control! I found some really beautiful roses and put some in the vases. There were also a lot of dead roses and they looked like they would have been beautiful had they not been left to there own devices.
