2. It's no secret that I love to cook. I also love to read a good recipe. Several weeks ago I read a recipe for cinnamon sugar scones, but it called for cinnamon chips. I knew Kroger here would not have cinnamon chips. This week while purchasing lunch meat and cheese for the week at my local Amish store, I noticed cinnamon chips on their shelf. I quickly purchased them and knew that some day soon I would make those scones. Some day was tonight. Yum! Oh, yum! I think I'll have another
3. Clayton topped 200 accelerated reader points today. He was pretty pumped. As a special treat he asked if he could stay up late and read. Are you kidding? Sit quietly in your bed and read while I go to bed?!?! No problem!
4. Jack loves to play outside. Every day he grabs the basketball and tries to shoot it. He never makes it (it's like 9 or 10 feet tall), but he tries every day. He comes in smiling and will say, "I almost got it...maybe tomorrow." Precious perseverance. I love it.
5. Andrew has been uncharacteristically whiny this week. He ran a low grade fever and then had some eye issues. I decided to take him to the doctor. Yeah, he had an ear infection in both ears...oops. Word to the third child in a highly verbal family...If your ears (or anything for that matter) hurt you have to speak up so someone can hear you and get some help for you!!
