Chris and I are having solo date day with the girls once a month. Chris and Ellie had a date Sat. and Emily and I had a date. Next month we will switch and I will be with Ellie. Emily and I ran a few errands but had some good one on one play time at home. It was so nice because I am never with Emily by myself. Chris and Ellie left the house at 9:30 and didn't come home until 3! They went swimming at the Y for 4 hours and ate lunch of course. What a wonderful dad he is. Ellie was exhausted (so was Chris) but she is doing so great with the water. She will go under water and blow bubbles and open her eyes under water. I am so proud of her.

It is about a girl who goes walking with her dad and all of the different things she hears on the walk. We really enjoyed it and we are going to take our own listening walk on the next warm day we have. I made a listening scavenger hunt for her on excel. I will just have her X or put a sticker beside any of the noises we hear.

We also made fruit skewers. Ellie has always loved fruit but lately she has not really wanted fruit unless I had strawberries so I figured if I put the fruit on a stick she would want some and I was right. I made my skewer first and Ellie wanted hers to be just like mine so it was perfect because it snuck in a school lesson of pattering. We also made cereal muffins last week and they turned out really good. At first I didn't think they were sweet enough but after a few bites they became addictive and both girls loved them. Here is the recipe which came from this blog.
2 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. milk
1/4 c. oil
1 c. ready-to-eat cereal
Mix all ingredients together, adding the cereal last. Pour batter into a 12 cup, greased muffin pan (or use muffin liners). Bake at 400° for 25 minutes.
