3.14

Albert Einstein

Happy Pi day!  Did you know that 3/14 is also Albert Einstein's birthday?  Isn't it ironic that a genius mathematician's birthday coincides with such important math?  Our children aren't old enough to understand Pi, but they are old enough to learn more about Albert Einstein.


Yesterday, we attended a fun event to celebrate Albert Einstein!  We followed a map to "discover" important people in his life such as his mother, girlfriend, secretary and even the man himself (all played by very knowledgable actors)!

Einstein's Mom

Of course, we also ate some mini pies- bought for $3.14!


Tonight for dinner we ate chicken pot pie (for the record, I believe I have discovered the best ever chicken pot pie recipe!).  For dessert, we had vanilla ice cream and chocolate sprinkles- Einsteins favorite sweet!  We also read Odd Boy Out: Young Albert Einstein by Don Brown.

  1. Oh how fun! I didn't know today was Einstein's birthday, I will have to remember for next year! We will read the book you recommended, too. We have lots of Einstein posters for my son's upcoming science party in June. (We are even borrowing an idea or two from Harris's science party)

  2. Learning about people like Einstein may just help produce an Einstein in your family. Who knows! Love that pin Harris is sporting. What a great day you had. That book looks very interesting. What a great way to carry the theme through to home.

  4. You are so awesome. Einstein and chicken pot pie. I haven't clicked through to see the recipe, so curious about your crust. Is it gluten free or did you do a seperate one for your son?

  6. Julie- I will be happy to share the recipe! It's our favorite pot pie we've ever made. Harris is on a trial run back on wheat so it is not gluten free. In fact, the crust is pillsbury!

  7. Ahhhhh. Pilsbury crust. In my head i had you using all your GF flours whipping up the crust from scratch. You are still amazing. Hope the "trial run" back on gluten goes well. Best, Julie

  9. Properly define definitions and tables. It is important to select a bi-fold container ramp that will fit all ISO shipping containers and chiller boxes, or a fixed forklift container ramp that will fit all standard shipping containers. Forklift Licence Sydney provides you with all the information required to obtain a forklift training in Sydney. ^ Scientists Develop Nickel Aluminide Composite Material that Can Cut Through Cast Iron and Granite This material-related article is a stub. Diesel forklifts are made by various manufacturers such as Toyota Material Handling, USA.
