Howdy! Welcome to my little blog. I am mom to an animal crazy, lizard chasing 7 year old girl and wife to a Maple Leaf, Blue Jay loving Canadian. I served 10 years in the public school system and now teach preschool 3 days a week. I love to read and hate the phone. You will find a little bit of everything on here. I'm cool like that.
We celebrated Johnny Appleseed's Birthday this week by making Apple Faces. Just slice some apples down the middle (I had to cut a couple of seeds out), spread some peanut butter on them and add some fun toppings. We used craisins, raisins, and mini marshmallows.
And don't forget to say this prayer before eating:
I wanted to share a couple of kids cookbooks with you this week. Pretend Soup is a great cookbook for the preschool age. The recipes use very simple pictures that make it very child friendly to read. We just checked this book by Paula Deen out from the library. There are several recipes in here I want to try. I think this would be a great one to own when Abby is a little older. Do you have any favorite kids cookbooks?
Big week for the Clark girls. Abby and I both went back to school. I will be teaching a 3 year old class at the same school Abby is attending. I am learning how to balance work and home life and behind on lots of things (phone calls, emails, laundry). So things might slow down for a little while here in my blog world while I get caught up. Hope your September has started off super!
I realize this picture does not make us look like the healthiest eating bunch but these box tops were saved over a long period of time - at least 2 weeks. :) Anyway - I cut each one into 3 or 4 pieces, put them all in a pile and let Abby put them all back together.
