Pi Day Yesterday

“Also, it’s pi day, so we should get a pie”, was my 17 year old daughter’s text. Yes! A favored educational tradition had stuck! She was reminding me this time instead of me being the one always getting excited. These moments of parenting are so poignant, when you realize you did something right as a parent. I combed the daily slices from yesterday and thought every teacher would be writing about Pi day, but lo and behold, I saw none in the scroll I was scrolling. (We would not be a teacher blog without paying hommage to pi day!) When I took my other two kids out yesterday I thought we were heading to an outdoor farmer’s market. The market was held every other week, and this was their off week. So I took them to a new bakery they had never been in. What better place to take a child then to a bakery???? It being “pi day ” I told them we were there to pick out a pie. “What kind of pies do you have?” I asked. “Peach, Apple, Apple Crumb, Blueberry, Lemon Meringue, Key Lime, Pumpkin”, replied the teenager behind the counter. (Which one would you have chosen?) We decided on a small apple pie. Heated up in the oven, with a side of vanilla ice cream, it was so good. I am going for another “slice” tonight.

I've enjoyed writing since the first grade, since my aunt gave me a journal so long ago to write in. Now I write to enjoy the moments. I write to stretch and share my thoughts. I write to connect and find calm. Raising three kids, three rabbits and two cats, with a school social work career, I need the daily refuge writing offers. The simple reflections allow for an abundance of memories to the hurried pace of life.

    1. Hi Ravienne,
      This post started on facebook, and then I thought-I could slice this tomorrow, as Mondays are always so busy. I am finding a good portion of my slices are inspired by facebook posts. It’s a good place to go for inspiration. Thank you for reading!

  1. My mouth is watering for a slice of any flavor. My granddaughter helped pot cherries for a homemade variety yesterday – and they live too far away for me to have received a slice.
    Your line “ These moments of parenting are so poignant, when you realize you did something right as a parent.” Made me smile – as well as all your added humor in your post! Happy Slicing!

  2. Lemon meringue or peach. We had pecan pie a day early to celebrate son-in-law’s birthday. But we had leftovers for Pi Day. When I was teaching, my students always had pie in their math classes. Usually a student would bring me some tastes from their pie feast in math.

  3. Love the Pi in your post! I do get excited about 3.14…. I have to admit. But it is not something that is easy to explain with third graders. I think that is why I have gotten away from it. Now Egg Day is coming and I get VERY excited about that!
