Part of Slice of Life by Two Writing Teachers March Slice a Day Challenge! I’m slicing every day this month. Thanks for stopping by.
The teenagers have started a 30 Day health challenge. They woke up early, on their own. Well, the 13-year old did, and then he woke up his sister. She doesn’t like alarm clocks, so for once she actually asked him to wake her up.
When I walked down to get my coffee, the yoga mat was already set up, the hand weights were out, and the oatmeal was started on the stove.
There was even cut fruit on the counter.
H grabbed an apple.
“Did you wash that apple?” I asked and I handed him the fruit and veggie wash. He had washed it, but he washed it again.
He was chopping up the apple when his sister walked in the kitchen, eyes wide at all the preparation.
“Wow!” She said as her brother started chopping the apple.
“I can’t promise I’m going to do all of this every day,” H said.
L started to nod, taking in all of the prep work, “I know.”
“I mean,” he continued, “these are the last of the strawberries.”
