Wow---the past couple months have just flown by for us as we've been so busy! Like many homeschoolers, we school year round---but we don't usually get a good start until about May. Summer and Fall are our best seasons for doing some really fun schooling, so I've been busy preparing new lessons and ordering new books to get us ready to jump in here soon! In the meantime, we've been taking fun field trips and hanging out with some of our homeschooling friends. All these busy, running-around days are fueled by a nutritious breakfast. One thing our family enjoys for a healthy breakfast is Carnation Breakfast Essentials.
I found Carnation Breakfast Essentials in the breakfast cereal aisle at Walmart. It comes in Classic French Vanilla and Rich Milk Chocolate. Make sure to grab some milk to mix it into.
Lynzie or Michael often makes breakfast in the mornings and they like to do special things to make their siblings smile. These are quick and easy for them to surprise everyone with, and they're also great for the younger kids to make themselves, as they just need to open one up and mix with milk. When I'm making this for the whole family, it's easier to mix up a pitcherful.
Our Carnation Breakfast Essentials fuels us for fun days like our trip to the fish hatchery last week, and staves off morning hunger while the kids are hitting the books. With all the things I have to do each morning to get prepared to start our day, it's nice to have a quick and convenient breakfast drink to get me going, also.
