One of the advantages of homeschooling is the ability to make, and consume, large, leisurely breakfasts. These are some breakfast sandwiches on homemade bread, which our 14-year-old whipped up for himself (along with his favorite mug from the best coffee in Portland). His five younger siblings asked him to make more, but I’m not sure we have enough bread left over at the moment…

You can see some of our day’s work on the chalkboard, and his reading material. It’s his 2nd time through J.D. Vance’s book.

What a great shot! This is pretty much the Platonic ideal of the VFYT. Thanks!

Whats on the sandwich?

Sandwich contents: scrambled eggs, ham, swiss cheese, arugula, & barbecue sauce (a treasured condiment around here).

James C., wow, you’ve been to Topsham?!? You really have been everywhere!

I love sandwiches which have to be squeezed to fit in one’s mouth.

Anyone else vote we go there for breakfast this morning? I’ll bring the bread.
