Weekly Report: Pi Day 3.14

This is what I woke up to on Thursday -- a gift from Luke:


 It is a construction paper pie/pi.  When you open it:


 Tons of little square, red apples.  Apple Pi! 

 After much debate on types of pies and quantities of pie to be made and then consumed on this new educational holiday (3.14), I proclaimed to the boys that we would have two pies for dinner tonight:  apple and pizza.   Levi was a bit leary that "pizza" and "pie" could be used in the same sentence and hesitated to try it at dinner until I explained, "pizza pie is just regular pizza."
 


Both boys were huge helps in peeling and cutting the apples with our apple-corer-peeler-slicer.  I love this tool.


Our apple pie with crumble crust.  I forgot to mix the cinnamon with the apples and sugar, so that is why it has dark stripes on the top.

The pizza -- a rectangular pizza pie in the end -- didn't last long.  

We are really at the point where we are about to lose our shirts to feed these boys.
