I just finished the most satisfying run through my neighbourhood. I ran past a farm in full pumpkin festival mode, along a meandering bike trail, then up and around Mt. Doug, a beautiful mini-mountain full of old growth trees.
It was perfect!
Now I'm enjoying this power drink.
All you need is about a third of a can of pumpkin (not the pie filling, just the straight pumpkin), some protein powder, cinnamon, flax seed (optional), Silk Vanilla Soy (but you could use any brand of course, or almond milk or whatever suits your fancy), a dollop of yoghurt AND some maple syrup (the real stuff).
It seriously tastes like pumpkin pie and is now my favourite power smoothie. Try it!
Here's our poem from last week. We sing it to the tune of "Frere Jacques".
You can grab this for a colour AND black and white image. The graphic is from 123RFPhoto.com.
I'd like to give a BIG shout-out to Traci from Dragonflies in First. Not only is she a super smart, funny, generous and dedicated teacher, but she has a ton of great products. Make sure you check out her Falling into Literacy Unit. I'm not exaggerating when I say it's full of very cute, very educational ideas!
Enjoy the rest of this beautiful fall day!
