005 (2)Lunch

One of my goals for mealtime in conjunction with rest time is to send the children home satiated and comfortable. Adequate rest and time to digest their food and all of our activities allow them to be joyfully ready to be swung up into your arms and plans for the rest of the day. During lunchtime, tea and snack time we endeavor to model healthy eating habits, polite manners, a mood of thankfulness and cheerful conversation as well as do the clean up and dishwashing together which we all really enjoy.
