They are Eating Me Outta House and Home!

I am not sure where they put all the food! We ate a late breakfast and they are already complaining about lunch. This morning I served 2 loaves of toast with fruit spread, 15 bananas, and 2 very large jars of applesauce. They claim to be starving just a few hours later. LOL

Just to give you an idea of our meals, last night we had Taco Salad. We used 3 large bags of spinach, 2 cans of each black beans and corn, 4 cukes, 4 large tomatoes, lots of shredded carrots, 2 containers of mushrooms, large jar of salsa, large container of sour cream, and 2 bags of tortilla chips. They were hungry an hour later and begged for fruit before bed. You would swear I do not feed them but they eat until they are full at a meal and need more later. Go figure.

I just saw a post on another blog about Virtual Public School. Our state just joined and I wonder how this would work for us. Maybe not this year but next for a few of my kids might be nice.

You know how they fall asleep from exhaustion after a rage? That stuff takes a LOT of energy.

That being said, I'm always amazed by how much it costs to feed my youth group at camp, too.

We are looking into Virtual Public School, too. We're hoping to have kids placed with us soon through the "foster to adopt" program and any that are school age will have to go to some form of public or private school.

I found your blog today through a link on, thanks for showing what daily life will be like. It's hard to imagine before our sibling group gets here (and before we even know who and how old).
