Tooth Fairy/Zahnfee and/und Gary Schmidt


Flora is waiting for the tooth fairy to come.  She takes her tooth with her wherever she goes.  Here she built herself a desk and put her eraser and tooth (in wooden container) there as well.

Flora wartet darauf, daß die Zahnfee kommt.  Sie nimmt ihren Zahn immer mit.  Hier hat sie sich einen Schreibtisch gebaut und Zahn und Radiergummi sind auch dabei.  Der Zahn ist in dem kleinen Döschen.




The bigger children attended some events with the author Gary Schmidt this weekend.  I have never read anything by him, but the children have and like him.  He is a great story-teller.  Peter said he has written a beautiful book on Martin de Porres.  They had it for sale there, but unfortunately, Peter didn't have enough money with him.

Die großen Kinder waren bei Veranstaltungen mit dem Kinderbuchautoren Gary Schmidt.  Ich habe noch nichts von ihm gelesen, aber meine Kinder schon.  Sie mögen seine Bücher, und er kann wunderschön erzählen, sagen sie.  Peter hat gesagt, er habe ein wunderschönes Buch über Martin de Porres geschrieben, was man dort auch kaufen konnte, doch Peter hatte nicht genug Geld dabei.    

I have my kitchen back!!!  What a relief, life without a functioning kitchen is not easy.  Look what I made for breakfast for tomorrow morning :).  Do you think I got carried away?

Ich habe wieder eine funktionierende Küche.  Ohne so eine Küche ist man wirklich aufgeschmissen.
Und so habe ich auch gleich für morgen früh zum Frühstück gebacken.  Vielleicht war es zuviel?



I really liked Father Barron's Lent reflection for today.  Take a look at the saint name generator he recommends: very neat.

  1. Breakfast muffins a well deserved treat for you all! Hope the Fairy turned up for Flora, Pip is about to lose her third tooth in order to allow room for the second big tooth that is growing behind it!

    Have a good weekend

    1. The fairy brought a little note book. Flora "writes" in it a lot. The third tooth!! She is really trying to hurry, isn't she?

  2. Flora is very sweet :) I liked the saint name generator too. It's good the children were able to listen to a good storyteller! We always enjoy that.

    The muffins look delicious! Do you use a gluten free flour mix, or just almond flour?

    1. You know I did the saint name generator. While I was praying as suggested I thought to myself that I would probably get St. Ignatius of Loyola. I thought he would be a good and very challenging saint for me. When I clicked, I saw exactly what I had thought: his name! I thought that was truly amazing.

      I baked gluten-free muffins and almond flour chocolate chip scones. I really like Elana's recipe for those. I think they are called orange white chocolate cranberry scones. I have changed the original recipe quite a bit, using dates or raisins and orange juice concentrate instead of the orange zest. I also use dark chocolate and not white. They are still really good with butter. I mix my own gluten free flour. It is so much cheaper and you know what is in it.

  3. Ja, da hattest du wohl Freude, den Ofen zurück zu haben. Obwohl, unsere Jungs, hätten die Muffins im Nu verschlungen. Das wären gar nicht zu viele gewesen.

    1. Jonathan und Charlotte essen auch sehr viel, die anderen (noch) nicht so viel. Peter und ich essen viel weniger. Schon lustig, wieviel so Teenager essen können.
