Salt Licks and Smoothies

 Faye has decided she needs a salt lick.

She carried it around with her for a good couple of hours.

Evidently she is missing salt in her diet?!

I realized Keith was being awfully quiet this morning.  I went to check on him, and found him in his room.

Asleep.
He put himself to bed, and slept from 9:30 until 12:30 in the afternoon.  I couldn't believe it.  This is the second day in a row that he has done this.  I am so glad that he was able to recognize he needed sleep instead of turn into the little demon again, though.

While he was sleeping, Faye and I had a lot of time to play.  She LOVES showers.  I don't know why, but it is a favorite thing of hers.  I let her play in the shower while I cleaned the bathroom.  When she got out, I got to revel in her curls.
People don't really believe me when I tell them she has curly hair.  After it dries, and she plays for a while, she sort of rubs the curl out of her hair and it looks mostly straight with a little wave.
This is her hair, right out of the shower.  Well, I pulled the top back, but no product, no playing with it, just her hair.  And I love it.  I hope it stays curly so I can teach her to love it.

This afternoon, as a reward for cleaning their room, the kids and I made smoothies.  They were delicious.  Mostly because they had a little bit of ice cream in with it.
Smoothies on a summer day are gorgeous.  Some days just need a little treat.

Going off of what I learned yesterday, we had Provencial soup for dinner, and homemade bread.  There were a lot of raised eyebrows, but all but one bowl full were devoured.  It made me feel good.  I love when my food is completely consumed.  It is the biggest compliment of all.

Tomorrow is my last day of work.

I am so excited to get back to a normal life.  The life I chose.  A life more like today.
