And, big thanks to my other half (who I am celebrating 11 years of coupledom with today) for taking his lunch hour to come home so that I could still make my Board meeting. PTA seems to be rolling right along!
Posting early tonight because I'm off on yet another PTA adventure tonight as it's Curriculum Night at Beechview. Wonder what kind of fun things are in store for NJ this year. He's really been enjoying school so far so bring on first grade!
The Dynamic Duo worked on their coloring maps when Noah got home from school (any guesses) and anticipating that it was going to be a full day (before the germs struck!) I had thrown dinner for tonight in the crock pot. I made Slow Cooker Oklahoma Steak Soup and Easy Corn Bread (another component of the state meal - yay!) I'll have to give you an update tomorrow as to how everyone liked it as they are going to eat after I head out. It's made the house smell good all day, and given the storms that rolled through brought quite the chill, seemed like the perfect dish tonight. I know things are going to be getting busier and busier around here and it will be more and more difficult to get all four of us to the table at the same time, so I'm thinking the crock pot is going to be getting more use.
Alright, have to head out. Cross your fingers for mad enrollment in the PTA tonight :) Not sure about tomorrow until we see how the Bean is. But until then...
Oklahoma Fun Fact of the Day: Located on the south shores of Grand Lake O' the Cherokees between Langley and Disney. The Pensacola Dam was built in 1940 and is still the World's Longest Multiple Arch Dam. Length of dam/spillway ... 6,565 feet. Length of multiple-arch section ... 4,284 feet. Pensacola Dam was the first hydroelectric facility in Oklahoma.
Think we have a few colors to chose from?
This'd make anyone feel better
Kayla got purple with orange polka dots
And insisted I needed Cinderella blue with white polka dots
Chose this recipe because it had actual corn in it
Working on their states
Noah's Oklahoma - The left is a tornado, middle bottom is Sally from Cars who is parking at a parking meter (black right) which is being sucked up by a tornado on top of it. And he definitely had to work Sonic in there
He makes my heart melt
The Bean's Oklahoma (The yellow is Sonic, the red is her cherry limeade from last night and the green is a shopping cart)
Remember what I said about melting hearts- this one too!
The perfect meal for the first really chilly night in Septmeber
