Blueberry Math


The other morning I got up early to make a sheet of Baked Blueberry Pancakes for breakfast. I serve baked pancakes frequently and asked our four year old whether she wanted me to make chocolate chip, strawberry, raspberry or blueberry this time... and blueberry it was! After breakfast I bathed the babies and got started on some to-do's for work and our school day.  I asked one of my older girls to go bring in the mail that had been sitting the Suburban and we finally got around to opening a package from a sweet friend. She had sent me a beautiful hand painted ornament of St. Therese and a berry special surprise for my little girls: a copy of one of her books titled Blueberry Math! It was an instant hit and our little "Grace" has been "doing school" and working on her "Blueberry Math" every morning since. Thank you, Aleesa!

Updated to add a little gift for you too from Aleesa!


We are all working on finishing our school week strong so we can prepare for Thanksgiving over the weekend. We are also praying for mild weather (please no snow storms next Tuesday!) in Montana so that our college kids will be able to make the long drive home next week! 

How are your Thanksgiving plans going?

  6. Baked pancakes? Not a fan of pancakes but when I have them they need to be thin and crispy (as in greasy). A safe journey for the college kids.

    1. The baked pancakes definitely turn out very different than they do on the griddle (think and fluffy), but also so much faster and easier when feeding a crowd vs standing at the stove all morning! I pour the batter into a sheet pan (or 2 when we have company), add the toppings, and then cut them into squares after they've baked. The kids all love them, but my husband prefers pancakes the way you like them!
