Amish Friendship Breadmuffins

I have my first joint Girl Scout meeting tomorrow. Last year I had a Daisy troop(kindergarteners). This year I have my Daisy troop (1st graders now) and I took on my older daughters troop, Brownies (3rd graders). We have three meetings a month: just Brownies, then just Daisy, and the 3rd week together. I thought it would be fun to make the girls Amish Friendship Bread as they will hopefully become friends and sisters in Girl Scouts. Wish me luck as I have not had that many kids together outside of school.

Home Sick from School

I just picked up Princess G from school. She did not sleep well and her nose was a little stuffed this morning. She lastEd just a little over a hour before the school nurse called me. Hopefully lots of rest and hot tea will help her feel better.

Trying Out Crayola 3D Chalk

I won a package of Crayola 3D chalk and gave it to the girls this morning. They were so excited to try it out this afternoon. When you put on the glasses the different colors do seem to float off the ground and a different heights. I have seen these in stores but was not sure how well they would work on cement. The examples on the box all show the drawings on blacktop and we have only a sidewalk. The glasses are a little small to fit over my glasses but I still can see the 3D effect. The glasses do fit fine over Princess A's glasses just fine. We have been outside for over 90 minutes and I am sure they would stay out a few hours more. I know we will be put here many times until the rains comes.

A Great Day at Alki Beach

We just spent a great day at Alki beach in West Seattle. It was the first time we went and walked on the beach. I did not realize how rock it would be. We found some sea glass and Princess A found the coolest seashell. She was pretty heart broken when she discovered it was missing. She is going to ask Santa to bring her an even better one for Christmas.
