So…. I know I have not blogged in a little while- but I don’t know about where you are, but things have been a bit crazy lately! With the extra stress, I decided the girls needed something to celebrate… Luckily it Pi Day! (which we usually celebrate with pot pie for dinner- so this year I just did a bit more than usual). Even though none of us particularly like using Pi in math problems, we do love pie!
If you do not know what Pi Day is, let me explain. Pi “π” is used in math and physics. Pi number that has been calculated to over one trillion digits past the decimal point. It is an irrational and transcendental number; it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. It kind of a crazy thing! But in most math classes, Pi is approximately equal to 3.14159 and is considered a mathematical constant but is usually simplified, even more to 3.14 to solving problems - this is why it is celebrated on March 14 (3/14). Pi always equals the circumference divided by the diameter (π = c/d) Pi is also used to find the circumference of a circle is equal to pi times the diameter (c = πd), no matter the size of the circle.
But… You do not really need to know or understand that to celebrate Pi Day! It just a great time to celebrate the fact there are people smart enough to figure stuff like Pi, spend time together, and, of course, EAT PIE!!
Yesterday Lou and I started the prep for pie fillings. We made chicken pot pie soup ( we eat it as soup for dinner one night and use the leftovers to fill a pie the next day), apple and strawberry. I am not going to share these recipes at this time (if someone wants them, send us a message or leave a comment and I will give them to you though!) I also bought pie crusts this time because I am not any good at making pie crusts!
This morning we baked the pies. Lou and Lee even helped me decorate the top crust. I think they did an excellent job, and I loved getting this time with the two of them! Lee and I use to cook together a lot before we became a “tween” that likes to sleep in on Sunday mornings instead of cooking breakfast… Maybe one day she’ll come back around! Until then, I’ll take it when I get it!
Now we will eat lunch together, watch a movie together and just enjoy today! This may seem like a lot of work for a silly holiday that doesn’t matter in the big scheme of things but, I am all about making memories and celebrating the silly things! I am hoping that when my kids are grown adults, they will remember how we celebrated all the silly moments together! Because I genuinely believe its these small silly crazy moments that build upon each other to create the happiest life possible!
Happy Pi Day!
