Words to Live By
Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, because He has come to His people and redeemed them. He has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of His servant David (as He said through His holy priests of long ago)
This morning the Damien, Lauren and Michael watched Story of John the Baptist and Pretty Angel to go along with our Jesse Tree readings. They also watched Letter G Song and Numbers Help Me Count. Our worksheets came from
Coloring Pages for Kids (G coloring page),
DLTK (Aa is for Angel Worksheet),
3 Dinosaurs (Which One is Different Worksheet).
We also reviewed the -ag word family.
Austin and Amanda studied Prime Numbers in math and the body's Circulatory System in Science.
Books We Enjoyed Today
I read the first three books with the little kids (Michael, Lauren and Damien) for storytime. The next two are the books I read with CJ before bedtime. The last book is the one I am reading myself.
In the Kitchen
We had oatmeal and fruit for breakfast this morning, leftovers from the last couple days for lunch and Amanda fixed Hamburger Helper Stroganoff, corn and fruit for dinner.
Amanda also made two loaves of Spiced Sweet Potato Bread this morning and we had some for snack this afternoon.
Spiced Sweet Potato Bread
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup water
2 cups cooked, mashed sweet potatoes
2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease two 9x5 inch loaf pans.
In mixing bowl combine sugar, oil and eggs. Beat until smooth. Add water and beat until well blended. Stir in pumpkin, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, and cloves.
Add dry ingredients to pumpkin mixture and blend just until well mixed.
Pour batter into loaf pans and bake in preheated oven until toothpick comes out clean, about 1 hour.
The kids played outside for about a half hour this morning. I had thought I would let them go back out this afternoon but the temperature started dropping and the wind picked up so I decided to keep them in.
Just For Fun
They didn't get to go outside and play this afternoon but they sure did have fun playing with playdough.
I don't know how Amanda managed to cook dinner with this menagerie under her feet!
