Wrapping up the Week - 8/28

Summer Reading→ Continuing to read both Brothers and Sisters in Adoption and Home Schooling Children with Special Needs.  Still reading Graced and Gifted by Kimberly Hahn.  Apparently school is getting in the way of my reading time!
Summer Kitchen→ We had our tea time on Wednesday and it dawned on me that it would have been the perfect time to have an “A” snack, but I thought about that about 15 minutes before I need to have our snack ready.  So corn muffins (from the box, gasp!) had to be good enough.  I did make honey butter though.  Animal crackers are on the grocery list for next week.  
I will dutifully make a list of easy tea time snacks for the corresponding letter soon.
I also will make a respectable attempt at an Apple Pie next week.  If you have an Apple Pie recipe that you love, please let me know.  The last time I made one it looked pretty good, but it didn’t taste good. At all.  
Summer Outings→ No outings this week - we were busy trying to get back on a schedule!
Summer Happenings→ I will share about our final summer getaway in next weeks Wrap Up.
Back to School→  Our new year got underway on Tuesday.  It really has been nice to get back to a schedule.  and maybe because the kids are getting a bit older I don’t feel like such drill sergent barking out schedule changes all day,  although I did hear my self saying “it is x:xxpm where are you supposed to be right now??!!” more than a few times.  I certainly did not add “annoy your sibling” to anyone’s list of things to do.
I will share about our Alphabet Path adventures next week, when I will then have to switch this over to all things “Fall”.  Have a great weekend!

I'm looking forward to hearing about your last get away! Glad the week went smoothly for you. I always give a sigh after that first week is done and out of the way. Enjoy your weekend!

This has been an easy and delicious apple pie recipe that I've used many times.

It is real basic, real easy. Has many positive reviews on

I think your gang will like it.

We make a basic apple crisp, but it always a hit- what I like about it is that even my seven year old can make most of it by himself!

Apple crisp is always easy and tasty.

This is our favorite apple pie recipe:

I didn't grow up eating much apple pie, but Jeff loves this one so much that he actually won't let me make it for his parents because he's afraid his mom will feel bad that this recipe is better than her recipe that she's used for so many years and is so proud of!

I'm looking forward to your list of tea time snacks- that's such a great idea, and something that I think Juan Pablo would have a lot of fun with!

Looking forrward to following you down the Alphabet path. wow. did you go to Macinac Island? We've been wanting and meaning to get there.

Jen said...

Thanks for the Apple Pie recipes! We might have to have a bake-off ;) We also like Apple Crisp and I am sure we will make a few this season. We didn't go to Mackinac this past weekend, but we have been many times, it is one of our favorite places to go! You will love it.
