The kids are back in school and it has been a very busy week around here. The kitchen counter is covered in school paperwork, waiting to be filed away. What a week!
On Tuesday we travelled to Tahiti with Around the World in 12 Dishes and investigated the vanilla bean…we made simple and delicious vanilla yogurt in our crock pot.
The debate around the nutritional value of organic produce has ramped up again, on Wednesday I jumped in with my opinion on the topic.
You could also find me on Wednesday, sharing my love for Toronto over on Mama Smiles fun and informative Exploring Geography series. This series is filled with amazing posts from bloggers around the world.
On Friday we were planning for Grandparents Day this weekend…the girls and I made an easy little keepsake with their artwork…homemade heating pads.
This week also marked the kick off of a couple of month long online events Kitchen Counter Chronicles is taking part in. The first is Mom’s Fighting Hunger, in support of No Kid Hungry campaign. Next week we’ll be sharing what our family is doing to fight hunger in our community.
The second event is the Kids Bloggers for World Animal Day 2012…animals are so important to children, and adults, and we are honouring their role in our lives this month.
Phew! There really is a lot going on around here. How was your first week back at school? What do you have planned for September?
