orange julius

Because I do not always want to be teacher mommy or rule maker mommy, I decided to incorporate Cooking Days and Science Days into our school days…plus try to be fun mommy during non-school hours.  😉  Cooking and Science Days are so fun for the kids though that I really do not need to be rule making mommy in a strict way…they follow because it is fun.

Today is Tuesday and Tuesdays are cooking days, so we made Orange Julius.  I LOVED orange julius as a kid…and it is still so yummy!  Easy and quick too.

Orange Julius

1 1/4 cups orange juice

1 cup water

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup sugar

1 cup ice

Put all ingredients in blender and mix until smooth and frothy.  Enjoy!

A Little About Me

I am just a regular girl, mommy, wife.  I am blessed beyond what I could ever imagine.  The Lord has given me life eternal!  There is no blessing greater than that.  AND…on top of that, He has given me a God seeking husband who has been by my side through joy and sorrow.  He has also shared with me my four precious children, one who is already in His presence.  However, I will not post their pictures on this blog…just a bit of my internet paranoia.  I enjoy writing, photography and experimenting in the kitchen.  I am taking a journey to the Son and want Him to use me in full capacity until I join Him at the end of my life on earth.  

Philippians 4:13  ~  I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, “I used everything You gave me.”  ~  Emma Bombeck
