First Day of School
Everything was going smoothly this morning. We woke up early, the boys practiced piano, I made breakfast and packed lunches. We were ready to load up in the car and head off to the first day of school with 10 minutes to spare, until I couldn't find my keys. Luckily I found them and Cody and Davey were only a few minutes late, but it was very stressful for me.
Cody started 3rd grade. He said his teacher was "so fun." Davey started 1st grade. I asked Davey if he waited to be called on, and didn't speak out of turn. He smiled and said, "I'll have to work on that." He just thinks everyone wants to hear what he says all the time, why should he have to wait to be called on?

Whole Grain Pancakes with Yogurt
I made these pancakes into bunnies for Cody and David. Usually my kids dislike whole wheat pancakes. I don't know whether the bunnies or the recipe was the secret. But here was the outcome . . .
I thought the pancakes were delicious. So here's the recipe if you want to try them.
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup oat bran
2 T sugar
1 T baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 t baking soda
1 cup plain yogurt
1/2-1 cup milk
2 T oil
Stir all of the dry ingredients together. Then add yogurt, 1/2 cup milk and oil. Mix well, continue adding milk to desired consistency, I used almost a 1/2 cup more of milk. Cook over medium heat.
