Blueberry Math

by | Nov 18, 2021 | Home Education, Math | 9 comments

The other morning I got up early to make a sheet of Baked Blueberry Pancakes for breakfast. I serve baked pancakes frequently and asked our four year old whether she wanted me to make chocolate chip, strawberry, raspberry or blueberry this time… and blueberry it was! After breakfast I bathed the babies and got started on some to-do’s for work and our school day.  I asked one of my older girls to go bring in the mail that had been sitting the Suburban and we finally got around to opening a package from a sweet friend. She had sent me a beautiful hand painted ornament of St. Therese and a berry special surprise for my little girls: a copy of one of her books titled Blueberry Math! It was an instant hit and our little “Grace” has been “doing school” and working on her “Blueberry Math” every morning since. Thank you, Aleesa! 


**The Felted Wool Blueberries don’t come with the book.**

Updated to add a little gift for you too from Aleesa!

We are all working on finishing our school week strong so we can prepare for Thanksgiving over the weekend. We are also praying for mild weather (please no snow storms next Tuesday!) in Montana so that our college kids will be able to make the long drive home next week! 

How are your Thanksgiving plans going?

    That book is so clever! (Or rather fusing manipulative with book!)

    I never knew math could be so much fun and nutritious, too.

    Baked pancakes? Not a fan of pancakes but when I have them they need to be thin and crispy (as in greasy). A safe journey for the college kids.

    The baked pancakes definitely turn out very different than they do on the griddle (think and fluffy), but also so much faster and easier when feeding a crowd vs standing at the stove all morning! I pour the batter into a sheet pan (or 2 when we have company), add the toppings, and then cut them into squares after they've baked. The kids all love them, but my husband prefers pancakes the way you like them!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
