Welcome and Blessings!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I have named this blog "Running to the Cross" because that is what I often find myself doing...running to be with my Lord Jesus! I often cover many aspects of life on my blog, as it is my journal. I used to write things down in all sorts of notebooks, but my writings would soon be lost. So I decided that it was time to start a blog and share my thoughts and ideas with others. Many topics you will find here are prayers, homemaking and organization, children and pregnancy, funny stories, and the challenges of parenting and motherhood. If you enjoy my blog and leave me a comment, you are likely to have me visit! I love meeting others and gleaning from the lives of others. May you be blessed! Your friend in Christ, Heather

Trying Something New...

Tomorrow we will be trying something new with our homeschooling. We are going to call it, "Science in the Kitchen." We are going to make some yummy treats, bread, and maybe even noodles for our supper tomorrow evening. We will note what happens when we mix leavening ingredients (baking soda, baking powder, and yeast) and heat. We will add all the other ingredients as well, afterall it has to taste good!

My oldest son, who is 9, has been begging me to teach him how to cook, so I am taking the opportunity. He has already learned how to cook scrambled eggs and has mixed up my bread for me, in the past. Thankfully, I have a Kitchen-Aide mixer to help things move along quicker and easier. I will someday take the time to show my children how to knead bread by hand, but for now, the mixer will do just fine!

Have a Great Day!

That is a very good idea. My son is 8 and has also been asking to learn how to cook. I may have to borrow that idea for him as he loves anything dealing with Science.

Please do! My oldest was 7 or 8 when he began mixing up my bread for me. Of course, I use a Kitchen-Aide and all he had to do was add the ingredients and watch it mix, but he thoroughly enjoys helping out that way in the kitchen!
