Cherrio apple crisp

We made cherrio apple crisp, an alternative to your basic apple crisp and really easy to make. L and E both helped with making it.
First we slightly crushed 1 cup of multigrain cherrios. 
 E would roll some then eat a few.
 Place crushed cherrio`s in medium sized bowl and combine with 1 cup of non crushed cherrios.
Add 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2tbsp flour,1 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg. Using your fingers blend 1/3 cup diced butter into tiny bits throughout mixture.
In large bowl, toss 6 apples (peeled and cut into bite size pieces) with 2 tbsp flour, 1 tbsp brown sugar and 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon.
Arrange apple mixture in a square pan. Spoon cereal mixture on top, covering all of the apples. Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown at 350 F (180 C).

E at the beach

B's idea was for everyone to build their own sandcastles and then to connect them all together. This was E's sandcastle. He was getting a bit tired and when he gets tired his thumb usually goes in his mouth. His thumb came right back out after he realized it was covered in sand.

First day of school

Its hard to believe that summer holidays are over already. The last month has gone by so fast. The first day back to school felt very much like a fall day with a lot cooler temperatures then we've been used to.
