true and luca asked if they could make dinner for aaron and myself. with some hesitation, and trepidation, i agreed. they then scoured the fridge and pantry to come up with their menu. true decided he would make a fruit salad, luca decided he'd make a vegetable salad. they gathered their ingredients, and with some cutting instruction from mom...they began their task. it was an effort on my part to stay out of it, while helping to keep fingers safe, and culling my need to control. we were also lucky enough to have a neighbor stop by with several bake potatoes (leftover from her son's team potluck)....and volia, a hearty and healthy meal. the boys should be proud of themselves.
