Healthy Ea ng Encourage healthy ea ng habits in your children by example, eat as your children should. Every meal should consist of carbs, protein, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. Educate your children on the reasons why those foods are healthy for them and they are good foods to eat. For instance, teach about how carrots help eyesight so eyes stay healthy, how breakfast gives you energy and meat helps your muscles.

陈科全 ︳八岁

回到地面

朵朵 ︳五岁

我的眼睛很大很大

要是笑过了头

装得下高山

你就会飞到天上去

装得下大海

要想回到地面

装得下蓝天

最好的 聚会和玩乐 场所!

你必须做一件伤心事

装得下整个世界 我的眼睛很小很小

姜二嫚 ︳六岁

有时遇到心事

晚上

就连两行泪

我打着手电筒散步

也装不下

累了就拿它当拐杖 我拄着一束光

编者随笔

刚从假期回来,很多人都有点抑郁,干事情提不起精神,看着 澳洲也没有以前那么安逸舒适了。所以大家又开始搜索下一个旅游 地点,把憧憬和计划当成自己朝九晚五的动力。更甚者开始怀疑自 己是否做了正确的定居选择,毕竟无论是国内还是日本欧美,一切 都那么有活力,旅游的时候自由惬意,想来生活起来也应该更精 彩? 但其实旅游和居住是不一样的,来澳洲旅游的人们也觉得澳洲 太美了,因为他们不用像我们一样周一就要早早起床,在堵塞的高 速上开着车,只希望接下来几个小时过得快一点。以己度人,世界 哪个角落莫不如此? 很多烦恼是无解的,我曾以为这个也是。直到我看到了这样一 句话:“与其不停计划下一个旅程,不如把生活过得像旅行时一 样。”这句话初看荒唐,生活就是生活,怎么能过得跟旅行一样 呢,我们又不是吉普赛人。但细细品味,却茅塞顿开。 旅行的时候能为了一个景点坐三个小时的火车,为什么我们不 能在周末花上同样的时间去参加一个活动,墨尔本的活动那可是一 整年都丰富多彩。 旅游的时候对当地美食绝不吝啬自己钱包,因为怕一生就来这 么一次,错过就没有了。那为什么不一家人出去吃饭的时候不要再 去经常去的中餐馆,找一家一直很想去,却总觉得贵的餐厅好好享 受一下呢,这辈子也可能就去这么一次不是吗? 旅游的时候能够早早起床,每天暴走;旅游的时候感官敏感, 对任何美的东西无限放大欣赏;旅游的时候每天会精心为自己挑一 套好看的衣服,走路脚底生风…… 日常生活就算不能全部做到,七七八八总是可以的吧。着眼于 当下,其实能过得更真实,更愉快。 人的一生,这一个旅途,我们又何尝不是一直在路上?
