Today was a pie making day for Pie Night tomorrow night at church. I made a pumpkin pie with Eleanor & Zach's help, a cheesecake, and a chocolate pie with Zoe's help. Zoe learned how boring it is to stir the chocolate pie filling and recruited Emily to help, but then I took over because it was almost done. I can never go to pie night with one pie. I love, love, love chocolate pie with a graham cracker crust, so I have to bring one of those, and Matt loves, loves, loves pumpkin pie, so I have to bring one of those, and making these pies puts me in the mood to make a cheesecake, so I throw in one of those with a strawberry topping. Our grocery store doesn't sell my strawberry topping anymore, so Matt will be on the hunt for some tomorrow. I can't have cheesecake without strawberry topping!
Zoe, Emily, & Eleanor are on a new chore schedule this week. They each have a room that they are responsible to keep clean throughout the day. Today, Zoe cleaned the kitchen, Emily cleaned the living room, and Eleanor cleaned the bedroom. They were happy that they only had to tidy their own area and when they were done they could have free time. They each did their share of work and their first day with this schedule went very well.
