We spent part of the weekend working on small, fun school projects. Ethan worked on his book box for school.
Gabriel worked on his writer’s notebook.
Summer joined in the fun by cutting and pasting her own little papers and books…and by providing the entertainment.
They enjoyed working on their school crafts, and I enjoyed helping them.
Sean decided to give everyone a break from projects by going on a walk/bike ride/scooter ride. If you live in the Austin area, you know that Sean automatically wins father of the year for taking the littles outside so that they could have a little fun. It was 109 today. Yes, you read correctly – 109! Needless to say, the adventure was over quickly, but they all had fun while it lasted.
Before getting out in the heat, I made some yummy breakfast rolls. We have not had a breakfast sweet treat since we started our gluten/dairy/peanut free journey. The littles were so excited and kept asking when the cinnamon rolls would be ready. There was much anticipation surrounding this special weekend breakfast. While they were eagerly waiting, filled with excitement, I was quite anxious, trying to think of a back-up plan in the event that the rolls flopped.
Never fear, though, they were wonderful. I had high hopes for them because I found the recipe over at Our Best Bites, and they have yet to disappoint me with any of their food. They are out of the cookbook, Gluten-Free Cooking Made Easy. I have not actually purchased the cookbook or tried any of the other recipes out of it. But, if all of the recipes are this good (and I am betting that they are!), it is definitely well worth the money to purchase a copy.
Make these rolls for breakfast this week, have them as a morning snack with a cup of tea, or serve them to your littles as a special treat when they get home from school. Just make sure that you make them so that you do not miss out on the deliciousness.
