DMan's Injury:(

 DMan was on P Bars this evening and dislocated this shoulder. Thank God he didn't break anything. 
D Man had a meet this weekend in Tampa, one of our favorites. He has to stay off of it for 7 to 10 days. Please pray for healing:) We are still heading to Tampa but for some R&R. Looking forward to States next month in Tallahassee.

Homeschool Uncooking Class 2nd Class

This month we made Banana Crunchy Treat. 
Very yummy and very healthy for you. Thank you Rene for teaching our 
children a healthier way of living. 

D Man helping to set up, he is putting the recipe under the mats for the class. 

Ducky helping out to, she is putting the bowls out for the class. 

These are all the ingredients for the Banana Crunchy Treat. 

Rene taught us to put all the dry ingredients in one bowl first so the wet won't stick to the dry. 
First was the carob powder, this is what Ducky is putting in her bowl. 

These are buckwheat groats, crunchy. Rene soaked them only for 15 minutes. Yum. 

D Man is putting in the Rolled Oats. 

Ducky is putting in the rolled oats. 

These are the sunflower seeds that were soaked for 8 hours. 

Then came the raisins. 

Now it's time for the wet ingredients. Rene cutting the bananas in half, full of potassium. 

Ducky mashing the banana. 

Mashed Banana.

Both Dry and Wet Ingredients. 

D Man helping his sister with the mashing of the banana. Great helping hands. 

This is the coconut nectar, its pretty thick but better for you than agave.

Next came the Raw Almond Butter. 

Now take your two bowls and mix them together. 
I love D Man's expression.

You can make balls or cookies out of this mixture, We all tried it and it was delicious.

Thank you to Xia-Xia for letting us review the Xia-Xia Hermit Crab plus the collective shell. 


Introducing: Xia-xia Pets Hermit Crab Figure Tobago

Name: Trinidad
Characteristics: dazzling, wonderful orange and yellow swirled shell
Age: four and up
Included: one hermit crab with its shell and a little buddy
Description: Tobago is the brave adventurer of the group, always seeking new adventures. The wonderful grand-crab of the infamous explorer, Cornell Xia, Tobago spends his days making an attempt to discover the depths of the Isle of Crabi. Soon after obtaining the &ldquoLong Lost Treasure of Breezy Bay,&rdquo his most recent challenge is fixing the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle. You will not see this crab sitting nonetheless; decided and persistent, Tobago will see his missions through.

Manufacturer Description

Welcome to a spot where each day is Carnival with XiaXia (pronounced ShaSha) new colorful, collectible hermit crabs. From a distant island, these crazy crustaceans dwell to dance and play simply because each day is a celebration with XiaXia! Begin the parade by pressing XiaXias claw and watch it do its wacky wander. Four loveable characters, each and every with their own tiny buddy, compose the XiaXia crew and accumulate them all!Meet Tobago with his roughandtumble blue exterior and happy grin, Tobago is often dancing to the XiaXia samba!LR44/AG13 batteries are necessary (involved).

My Review:
My daughter loves cute tiny toys. She loves these adorable hermit crabs. She loves using her imagination to play with these cute hermit crabs. Each Xia-Xia Hermit Crab has a removable shell with a tiny friend inside. The Xia-Xia Hermit Crab walks on the floor. The batteries are included. Each shell is a collective shell.  The Hermit Crab is durable and fun to play with. The hermit crab moves and when it hits a wall it will turn around by itself, thats a cool and fun feature. The cute collective are fun to put in the shell and its fun to change out the shell with different shells.
