School is cool

I had no trouble getting the kids ready for school today. Parker was up and ready in 10 minutes and Payton was very eager to wear his new shirt, jacket and backpack. We did a little study that they had gotten from a church group at the end of the school year last year and prayed for the new year. I did miss them and tried to stay busy so that I didn't think about it. I made 6 loaves of pizza bread and froze for an up and coming party we are planning. I did some cleaning and worked and tied some loose ends around the house.

This is the easiest pizza dough I have ever found. You mix it in a food processor.

3 cups of flour
11/2 tsp of kosher salt
a packet of yeast
1 tbs of sugar

mix then add
1 Cup of warm water and 2tbs of olive oil.
Let the processor do the work blending it all together.

put in a bowl and let rise for 2 hours.
Then punch in the middle and let sit for 10 minutes. roll out to put toppings on and bake until cheese is melted. (The dough should be done when the cheese is melted)
I add a little corn meal on the bottum of the pan before I put the pizza dough on it. It keeps it from sticking.

Going to the Beach

 Payton took a time out to play on the playground. He was an easy subject to photograph.

 The boys enjoyed their time of catching fish. They spent 5 hours doing it.

This is the same beach my parents took me to. I remember my mom used to make ham salad sandwiches for us to eat for lunch. To this day I do not like ham salad. Ewww!
