Sweet Pizza

For anyone who hasn't asked yet, homeschooling so far is GREAT.  I feel like our lives are so much richer.  My kids have always gotten along pretty well, but they are amazing together now.  They climb into bed with me in the morning and we spend 20 minutes or so reading, then in the afternoon we'll read for another hour or two.  They like to surprise me by going and making breakfast (or at least getting all the food out).  They beg me to teach them more and more about so many things.  They don't ask to watch movies ( or TV shows) AT ALL.  We checked out a Go, Diego, Go! DVD from the library last week, brought it home and have not watched any of it.  And they don't care.  Instead they play pretend.  They like to be Jack and Annie from the Magic Tree House books, or Kurt and Gretl Von Trapp (from The Sound of Music).  They like to sing songs from "Annie," like "Tomorrow" or "Hard Knock Life."  I am so happy.

This week Cade wanted to open a restaurant.  He wanted to call it the Sweet Pizza Restaurant because the pizza we make every Friday is so sweet, he says.

So Monday was the menu and sign preparation.  He wanted to label everything.  He made a sign to go on the door of what the restaurant was called.  He made a sign for the bathroom (Ali helped with that one).  He made signs for the other rooms in our house where we didn't want people going.  He made an exit sign and even a handicapped parking spot.  He thought of these on his own.  I had no idea children were so observant.  

Tuesday we made the desserts.  Chocolate cupcakes with star sprinkles and little mini cheesecakes.  Cade thought up the whole menu on his own and we made sure we had the food we were offering.  The pizza was made hot and fresh today.

Today was the grand opening.  It was great.  We had a friend come over and it was so fun to see Cade get in character to wait on everyone.

Can you tell which one Ali did?  That girl is Rapunzel.

Our "do not enter" signs for the bedrooms.

If you notice, sweetest pizza, cheesecake with chocolate and chocolate cupcakes are all $1.  This is so everyone can buy it because it is so yummy.  The pickled pepper sandwich (which is actually a wrap and actually very tasty) was $20.  He's never had it before.
