After School Snack Time

I decided to start a new tradition that I want to stick with forever and EVER more!  

After school snack time!  

This is probably a no brainer for others, as I'm sure every other mother in the world allows their children an after school snack,  but I'm a slow learner.    I didn't want the kids to come home and snack and then NOT have room for their dinner.  

But, dinner shhhmmminnnner........


Instead of rushing into homework and chores and piano practice,
we have our.....
"sit down, eat and talk about the day,
while I fold the enormous laundry pile and iron"

It's been so much fun to think of creative goodies to lay out for my little people.
