A Few Things

Over reading week the kids each picked a meal they wanted to cook.  They frequently help me cook, but sometimes when we have the time instead of them just helping, I have them do the whole thing.  They look through books and Pinterest boards, make a menu, help me shop and then make it.  Cora chose chicken pot pie.  As this meal took more time with cooking the chicken and all first, we never seemed to have the full day to do it.  But we finally got it done.  And it was fabulous.  Only thing was Dave was on a business trip and didn't get to have any.  She did make three tho, so we will be having it again later.
Blake is no longer a Kub, well they don't actually have Kubs in our ward at all which is sad, but anyways he is too old to participate in the Kub Kar Rallly.  But he was able to use one of his old cars and had fun in the ward rally.  It was a fun night.  He got to have his Dad come and he loved racing his cars.  Did very well too.

This last week was our annual Irish Concert.  Once again Leah played with the band.  She also got asked to sing and did a great job.

Blake and Leah dressed in green for St. Patrick Day.  For some unbeknown reason their school decided to have rainbow day the same day.  Each class was given a color to wear.  Blake's was orange and Leah was red.  Both thought it was ridiculous to not wear green on St. Patrick's Day.   Blake had a nod to both.  Leah right out refused.  And paid for it later when she got in trouble for not having any school spirit by the principle.  Ahhhh.....whatever.

We had decided to have scones and eggs for dinner.  I wanted to put green coloring in all of it.  Cora said no way.  :)  So we settled for the delicious mint brownie milkshake she made us.
Life is getting a bit slower now that basketball is done.  Cora started right into rugby. She is also getting close to show time for drama, which means longer and more frequent practices.  But it is only one kid going places and I don't have to go everywhere with her.  It has been wonderful.  A few more weeks and Blake will start soccer and Leah badminton.  We have a bit of a breather.
