We made it

Yes. We're here in sunny California. Yes, it really is sunny. And windy... and we like it, a lot!

The Bean started school yesterday. She's been admitted to a special needs program that is amazing. She's going five days a week for 3 hours a day and is receiving services in class. I'm in heaven - and she is loving every minute of it!

Because of her new career as a student, my focus has shifted away from my knitting and sewing and has turned to feeding the monsters! Well, school and the amazing produce out here... A new friend of mine suggested that I look at Weelicious for creative and healthy ideas for the Bean's lunches. What a treasure that site is! I've been cooking meals and snacks from the site all week and we are in heaven - well, Dad and me, that is. The kids are on a hunger strike - I think due to the fact that I've decided that I no longer will feed them processed crap from a box - nor will I make 5 separate meals at a time! (really, I'm pretty ashamed of what I was feeding them especially considering I was so carefully making baby food and exposing them to amazing produce like fava beans, avocados and star fruit in the beginning!)

OK, back into the kitchen for me. I need to put away the "O" cookies and start on the home made fish sticks for dinner so I can be ready to head out for my meeting with the PMC.
