Works for me Wednesday: V-day style!

Today was my Valentine's Day party for my four-year-olds. Tomorrow is the party for the 3s. I have a lot of food allergies in the classroom, which makes providing treats suitable for everyone in the class a bit challenging. My healthy and kid-friendly solution? Fruit kebabs! I took wooden skewers (2 per child, but I don't think they'll really eat that much) & loaded them with grapes, strawberries, fresh pineapple and mandarin oranges! The kids think they're tons of fun & they don't get soggy like a fruit salad would! Plus, they're easier to serve than a fruit tray! It's healthy, fun & it WORKS FOR ME!

I love your idea. I used to teach Pre-K and there always seems to be at least one or more food allergies in each class!

I couldn't help but notice that your blog revolves around infertility and it's issues. My husband and I are also infertile. We have been married for over 12 years without a single pregnancy that we know of.

I have to tell you that sometimes God has something better for you! Just before our 10th anniversary we heard about a sibling group that needed adoptive parents. We are now parents of twin 8 year olds and a 6 (I'm almost 7 Mom!) year old. They are 15 months apart and absolutely incredible! Just always remember that God is ALWAYS faithful and HIS way is better than ours EVERY TIME!

Best Wishes,
Traci

That makes me hungry just looking at it (and even on Weight Watchers, I could totally eat those!!!)
