For the summer we have been loosely following the 4-H cooking plan. Since I don't use processed foods, and I soak everything I can we have tweeked the recipe's a bit and I use many from other inspiring people like and

Each week we sing and pray and have sister sharing time where we share books, talents, writings, and goals with each other. Then we have a discussion and an activity about a topic from our readings. Then I teach a lesson about cooking and one of the girls teaches us something she has learned about our cooking topic and then we spend and hour and a half cooking.

I have so enjoyed spending time with beautiful girls, their silliness and kindness and helpfulness and willingness to discuss and learn and do. They are a tribute to their beautiful mothers!
