Summertime Chex Mix

Tonight will be the first time in over a year that I will not be nursing our son to sleep.  To say I’m struggling with that is an understatement.  Luckily, a group of homeschooling moms are getting together with moms like me who are interested in homeschooling to learn more.  I’m praying this get together will help keep my mind off of not being there for our son’s bedtime.  I’m excited to meet other moms with similar interests regarding our children’s education.

So, I am bringing a treat.  It is definitly not on our diet so I will not be eating much.  I’ll admit though, I had to make sure it was edible before I presented it to others.  Well, it passed the test!  It is the perfect treat for summer.
