Who are you?

Owls were the theme of the day as we kicked it off with two new owl songs during breakfast. New songs easily learned by preschoolers always make for smiles from pancake-filled mouths.

A school day for Alena allowed Alivia and I some time to whip up a loaf of WHO bread* this morning. Coming out of the oven shortly after lunch, it turned out surprisingly well (especially since I gave it a second punch down before popping in the oven ... another reason you shouldn't read recipes and try to have a phone conversation at the same time). Considering our picky eaters asked for seconds, I'd call it a success.

We also spent some time completing a couple of owl crafts (which Alena thoroughly enjoys) while talking about owls (which Alivia thoroughly enjoys). Such simple projects can yield terrific results and beautifully proud smiles.

*This idea and recipe came from a blog by Amanda Soule that I absolutely adore. One can only dream of being so wonderfully creative, patient and insightful.
